Feds: International Plot to Shoot Up Concerts, Attack NYC Thwarted – 3 arrested

Image result for isis terrorizing americaFederal authorities have charged three men in an international conspiracy to engage in ISIS-inspired terrorist attacks on New York City in the summer of 2016.

The men, a Canadian citizen, a U.S. citizen living in Pakistan, and a citizen of the Philippines, planned to shoot concert goers, detonate a bomb in New York City’s Time Square, and attack the city’s subway system.

The parallels to the Paris nightclub attack at the Bataclan, which included grenade attacks on nearby venues, is clear. The Philippines citizen is a twist that envokes the Las Vegas mass murder as the shooter’s girlfriend was in the Philippines during the shooting and received $100,000 from the shooter just prior to the massacre.

Canadian citizen Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy said that he “wanted to shoot up concerts because they kill a lot of people. We just walk in with guns in our hands, that’s how the Paris guys did it.”

“We seriously need a car bomb at Time’s Square,” another suspect told an undercover FBI agent. “Look at these crowds of people.”

While the attacks were planned for last year, the charges were unsealed by federal authorities Friday.

Bahnasawy bought bomb-making supplies for the attack and was arrested in May of 2016 upon entering the United States in preparation for the attacks. He has now pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.

The U.S. citizen, Talha Haroon, was living in Pakistan when he was arrested by local authorities and is still awaiting extradition.

“I wanna kill . . . them in thousands” Haroon allegedly told the undercover. “We have to make a ocean out of their blood .. leave no one standing.”

Russel Salic, a Philippines native, wired money to Haroon and Bahnasawy in support of the attack. Money moving back-and-forth between the U.S. and the Philippines is becoming more prevalent in U.S. terrorist activities. Salic was arrested by Philippine authorities and is also awaiting extradition.

Both Haroon and Basawai declared their allegiance to ISIS in electronic communications.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
