NYFRB 爆破未遂

NYFRBの爆破未遂があったようだ。
 FBIは、ニューヨーク連銀を爆破する計画を企てた容疑で21歳のバング
ラデシュ国籍の男を逮捕した。
 米司法省の声明によると、逮捕されたのはQuazi Mohammad Rezwanul
Ahsan Nafis容疑者で、大量破壊兵器の使用を計画したほか、武装組織
アルカイダへの物質的な支援も企てていた。

容疑者
・Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis 男性 21才
 バングラデシュ国籍
・2012年1月 学生ビザで米国に入国
・2012年1月-5月 ミズーリ州の大学でサイバーセキュリティを専攻。
・2012年7月 NY州の大学(?)に転校。
・2012年9月 「勝利または殉死するまで我々はやめない」とする犯行
       声明ビデオを録画。
・2012年10月 テロ計画実施。
・おとり捜査官を信用し、計約450kgの爆弾をワゴン車に積載。連銀に
 行き、起爆装置を取りつけて、携帯電話を使って点火行為を行った。
・アンワル・アウラキに触発された。
・テロの訓練経験はなし。

FBIのおとり捜査による成果のようだ。
おとり捜査官が優秀なのか、容疑者が優秀でないのかわからない。

爆破計画を練らなくても、リーマンショックで、米国経済の破壊は進み、
大統領がロムニーになれば、軍産複合体保護政策と貧困格差拡大により、
米国民の軍志願者が増加し、参戦も増加。よって、米国民は減少。消費が
滞り、税収も減り、戦費が増加。赤字国債発行で、米国債価値も減る。
オバマが大統領になれば、米国民への増税、保護政策が進み、物価が上昇。
インフレで消費が滞り、福祉費が増加。結果はロムニーと変わらないかも
しれない。結局、植民地から搾取となる。単純な想定の範囲。
容疑者は、サイバーセキュリティを専攻せず、経済を専攻したほうが、
もっと理解できただろう。
911テロで役立たずだったFBIだが、潜入捜査官は優秀か。

 ニューヨーク(CNN) 米連邦捜査局(FBI)とニューヨーク市警は17日、ニューヨーク連邦準備銀行を爆破しようとしたとして、バングラデシュ国籍の男を逮捕した。FBIはおとり捜査員を通じてこの男に接触。男が犯行に使おうとした「爆弾」も、この捜査員が提供したものだった。
 捜査当局によると、逮捕されたカジ・モハマド・レズワヌル・アーサン・ナフィス容疑者(21)は、米本土に対するテロを実行し、テロ組織のメンバーを募る目的で、今年1月に学生ビザで米国に入国。金融機関の破壊によって米国を破壊することを目論み、連銀に目を付けたとされる。FBIのおとり捜査員に対し、米政府高官やニューヨーク証券取引所を狙ったテロの計画も打ち明けていたという。
 おとり捜査員は、袋20個に計約450キロの爆弾が入っていると信じ込ませてナフィス容疑者に提供。同容疑者はワゴン車にこれを積んで、捜査員とともにマンハッタンの金融街にある連銀に行き、起爆装置を取りつけて、携帯電話を使って点火しようとした。
 しかし爆発は起こらず、直後にナフィス容疑者は大量破壊兵器使用未遂などの容疑で逮捕された。
 ナフィス容疑者は途中で近くのホテルに立ち寄って、「勝利または殉死するまで我々はやめない」とする犯行声明ビデオを録画していたとされる。警察に見つかった場合に備えて、自爆テロも企てていたという。
 同容疑者はまた、昨年イエメンで米軍の無人偵察機に殺害された国際テロ組織アルカイダ指導者アンワル・アウラキ師に触発されたとも話していたといい、捜査当局はアルカイダとの関係についても調べている。
 しかし調べに対して同容疑者は、連銀の爆破は単独で計画したと供述しているという。

---Man held in NYC plot to blow up Federal Reserve---

NEW YORK - A Bangladeshi man who came to the United States to wage jihad was arrested in an elaborate FBI sting on Wednesday after attempting to blow up a fake car bomb outside the Federal Reserve building in Manhattan, authorities said.

Before trying to carry out the alleged terrorism plot, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis went to a warehouse to help assemble a 1,000-pound bomb using inert material, according to a criminal complaint. He also asked an undercover agent to videotape him saying, "We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom," the complaint said.

Agents grabbed the 21-year-old Nafis - armed with a cellphone he believed was rigged as a detonator - after he made several attempts to blow up the bomb inside a vehicle parked next to the Federal Reserve, the complaint said.

Authorities emphasized that the plot never posed an actual risk. However, they claimed the case demonstrated the value of using sting operations to neutralize young extremists eager to harm Americans.

"Attempting to destroy a landmark building and kill or maim untold numbers of innocent bystanders is about as serious as the imagination can conjure," said Mary Galligan, acting head of the FBI's New York office. "The defendant faces appropriately severe consequences."

Nafis appeared in federal court in Brooklyn to face charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al-Qaida. Wearing a brown T-shirt and black jeans, he was ordered held without bail and did not enter a plea. His defense attorney had no comment outside court.

The defendant had sought assurances from an undercover agent posing as an al-Qaida contact that the terrorist group would support the operation.

"The thing that I want to do, ask you about, is that, the thing I'm doing, it's under al-Qaida?" he was recorded saying during a meeting in bugged hotel room in Queens, according to the complaint.

In a September meeting in the same hotel room, Nafis "confirmed he was ready to kill himself during the course of the attack, but indicated he wanted to return to Bangladesh to see his family one last time to set his affairs in order," the complaint said.

But there was no allegation that Nafis actually received training or direction from the terrorist group.

Prosecutors say Nafis traveled to the U.S. on a student visa in January to carry out an attack. In July, he contacted a confidential informant, telling him he wanted to form a terror cell, the criminal complaint said.

In further conversations, authorities said Nafis proposed several spots for his attack, including the New York Stock Exchange - and that in a written letter taking responsibility for the Federal Reserve job he was about to carry out, he said he wanted to "destroy America." Other communications took place through Facebook, the complaint said.

A Twitter account with the suspect's name and photo had six followers and two messages and was linked to a Facebook page that had been taken down.

Nafis attended Southeast Missouri State University during the spring semester, which ran from January to May, university spokeswoman Ann Hayes told The Associated Press. He was pursuing a bachelor's degree in cybersecurity.

Hayes said Nafis requested a transfer of his records in July and the university complied, though she couldn't say where the records were transferred.

On Wednesday, federal officials were at the New York home where Nafis was staying, a red brick building in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens. Owner Rafiqul Islam said Nafis was staying with his second-floor tenants, and he was told he was related to the family. The tenants didn't answer their door and their apartment was dark.

Islam said Nafis had only lived there about a month or so.

"I didn't notice anything, he spoke to me very quietly," he said. "He said he was going to be studying here."

Neighbor Jose Santos, 19, said he would see Nafis at the same grocery store.

"He seemed like a regular nice guy to me," Santos said. "I'm just shocked right now to see that he tried to plant a 1,000-pound bomb. That's crazy."

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the case is one more reminder that New York remains a target:

"New York continues to be very much in the mind frame of terrorism. This individual came here with the express purpose of committing a terrorist attack; he was motivated by al-Qaida. We see this threat as being with us for a long time to come."

Kelly said security is always a precaution and there are about a thousand officers in the counterterrorism division. He didn't specify if any additional measures were being taken.

The bank, located at 33 Liberty St., is one of 12 branches around the country that, along with the Board of Governors in Washington, make up the Federal Reserve System that serves as the central bank of the United States. It sets interest rates.

The Federal Reserve is one of the most fortified buildings in the city, smack in the middle of a massive security effort headed by the New York Police Department where a network of thousands of private and police cameras watch for suspicious activity.

The department uses sophisticated programs that can search for suspicious activity, like an object in one place for a long time, at the building modeled after London's "ring of steel." The analytic software also is designed to take video and catalog it according to movements, shapes and colors, so officers can set parameters to search the system for, say, a suspicious van.

The Fed is also home to the world's largest accumulation of gold, according to the bank's website. Dozens of governments and central banks store a portion of their gold reserves in high-security vaults deep beneath the building. In recent years, it held 216 million troy ounces of gold, or more than a fifth of all global monetary gold reserves, making it a bigger bullion depository than Fort Knox.

The federal case was the latest where a terrorism plot against the city turned out to be a sting operation.

Four men were convicted in 2009 in a plot to bomb synagogues and shoot down military planes with missiles - a case that began after an FBI informant was assigned to infiltrate a mosque in Newburgh, about 70 miles north of New York City. The federal judge hearing the case said she was not proud of the government's role in nurturing the plot.

In 2004, a Pakistani immigrant was arrested and convicted for a scheme to blow up the subway station at Herald Square in Midtown. His lawyers argued that their client had been set up by a police informant who showed him pictures of Iraq abuse to get him involved in an attack against civilians.
