New York: Islamic Terrorists ‘Prepared to Strap Bombs to Their Bodies and Walk Into Crowded New York Subway Cars’, Were Only Days from Attack

If terror-linked Islamist front groups like CAIR and ISNA get their way — fully supported by their leftist enablers and fully empowered by the politically correct ineptitude of the Obama Administration — then “passionate” Muslims like Adis Madunjanin and his “brothers-in-arms” would have a much better chance of accomplishing their goal to kill themselves and everyone else around them for the sake of Allah. If we succumb, they’ll succeed …

By Sebastian Smith, AFP – “NEW YORK — The high-profile trial began of a man accused of being part of a New York trio that was only ‘days’ from launching suicide bombs in the city’s crowded subway to take revenge for the US war in Afghanistan.

The trial in Brooklyn features New York immigrant Muslims who became radicalized in the feverish post-9/11 atmosphere and allegedly became homegrown terrorists with a plan to cause carnage in America’s biggest city.

Federal prosecutor James Loonam opened by pointing across the courtroom at defendant Adis Medunjanin, 27, and calling him an Al-Qaeda ‘terrorist.’

Loonam detailed how in September 2009 Medunjanin, along with two former New York high school friends, put final touches on a plan to bomb either the subway, Times Square, or another packed location.

‘Three men were prepared to strap bombs to their bodies and walk into crowded New York subway cars that were filled with innocent people,’ Loonam said. ‘These men came so close, within days of carrying out this attack, before they were stopped.’

Gesturing at Medunjanin, who wore a suit, the prosecutor said: ‘One of those Al-Qaeda terrorists is inside the courtroom right now.’

Medunjanin, a Bosnian whose family fled to the United States during the war with Serbia in the 1990s, is charged with nine terrorism-related counts.

He is accused of traveling to Pakistan in 2008 in a failed attempt to join the Taliban to fight against US forces in Afghanistan, then entering the bomb plot on his return home, and finally trying to use his car to cause bloodshed in a desperate last act before his arrest.

He has pleaded not guilty. His lawyer, Robert Gottlieb, said Medunjanin was only a passionate Muslim who wanted to go to Afghanistan because he was outraged by the US drone bombing of civilians and abuses in US military prisons.” Read more.
