Ronald Grecula of Bangor, Pennsylvania was arrested on Friday by federal agents in Houston in a sting operation by FBI agents posing as al-Qaeda operatives. The FBI says the man approached an informant about selling a bomb to terrorists. Grecula allegedly was also looking for a hit man to kill his ex-wife.

A Pennsylvania man is in a Houston federal court this afternoon, accused of agreeing to build a bomb and sell it to a terrorist organization, according to court documents.

A criminal complaint accuses Ronald Allen Grecula, 68, of Bangor, Pa., of expressing his willingness to build a bomb to be used against U.S. citizens for a group he believed was affiliated with al-Qaida.

Prosecutors say in court documents that Grecula began negotiating with a confidential source in April. On May 11, an informant recorded telephone conversations about Grecula's willingness to build a bomb, investigators say.

It's a good thing that the FBI was tipped off to this man's desire to sell a bomb to al-Qaeda. Apparently he has the skills necessary to do so and it's a good thing that he's off the streets.

The guy is either senile, or an idiot. If he did have supreme bomb making skills, he wouldn't need a hitman to rid himlsef of his wife
I know it sounds gross but ironic, isn't it.

Seems he was already a fugitive from the FBI....if it's the same guy (can't be many with that name linked to PA)

Yes, this must be the same person. Maybe this is the reason he hates the U.S. enough to want to sell bombs to al-Qaeda.

What's really funny about this, and numerous other cases over the last couple of years, is that there have so far been NO arrests of Al-Qaida terrorists in the US, but there are plenty of FBI and informants on the payroll of the FBI posing as them

Yeah, the question is how many deals are completed undetected with real terrorists. I don't think we have any idea.

This man is what we call a "berraco" in Spanish
among other things.

If this little story is true- what a nut case

because if the FBI doesn't have an absolutely air-tight case, any suspect they bring in will end up screaming "racial profiling" and the ACLU will bring in lawyers and all that stuff they're known for.

The Media will make the name of the suspect public knowledge worldwide, and all sorts of details. Any connections and contacts he might have had with terrorism now knows to run and cover their tracks.

Cases against organized crime were handled like this. Secrecy, stealth and patience. Life isn't CSI, cases against organized illegal outfits don't get "solved" or all the critical evidence collected in an hour. Though perhaps we need to step things up a bit, Untouchables-style. Fedoras and tommy-guns versus head scarves and AK47's. Hell, it's not like there's not blood in the streets already, and it'll only get worse. Better to have bystanders and cops killed fighting the enemy than bystanders and cops killed by unopposed terrorsit bombs.
