FBI unit set for more anti-terror raids in Queens; Fears of Madrid-style subway bombings


www.nydailynews.com

Fearful of a Madrid-style subway train bombing, authorities are poised to make more raids to seize bomb-making materials at locations in Queens, sources said Wednesday.

The FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team arrived in New York in anticipation of the offensive to thwart a Denver-based terror cell with ties to Al Qaeda, police sources told the Daily News.

Another source said an earlier raid uncovered nine backpacks and cell phones, raising memories of the March 2004 bombings in Madrid.

FBI Director Robert Mueller, speaking at a Senate hearing Wednesday, said the plot posed "no imminent danger."

"New Yorkers are well benefited from the work of the NYPD and (Commissioner) Ray Kelly," said Mueller, offering no other details on the HRT deployment.

Najibullah Zazi, the Colorado man who triggered a rash of Queens raids Monday, was identified through e-mail, wire taps and a confidential informant as part of the plot, the source said. Zazi, 25, told The News he had nothing to do with any terrorist activity.

"No. Of course, I'm not a terrorist," the 25-year-old Afghan national said Tuesday.


Something coming down the pipe or just more drama so they can renew the PATRIOT ACT, which comes up for renewal at the end of the year?

I can see it now, patriots take over a town during a forced flu action but the army bombs it, killing everyone and the MSM blame terrorists. The public never knows the true story.

Anything can happen

This should be entertaining.

there are so many oddities in this story that it's almost comical.

The FBI and NYPD raid a bunch of apartments and someone tells the press they will be briefing congress the next day.

They make raids all the time, they make arrests all the time. They don't make the papers and they don't address congress.

Suddenly, the guy who's being watched in Colorado is on tv talking about how he loves this country and he's not a terrorist.

now we find out it's a plot against the NYC subways (again) and they found paperwork about bombs and making bombs. They also say they found 9 backpacks and nine cell phones (like Madrid).

If they found this all in that guy's car, why is he out and about, talking about how ludicrous this is?

So you are enjoying the show then?

It really is a great production, comedy is highly needed in these times.

The FBI can't even investigate corruption within its own agencies, corruption that runs deep and high up. In my opinion they are a corrupt federal agency which is attempting to now use the threat of terrorism as a means to legitimize the FBI. Until they can clean their own house and rid themselves of all ties to organized crime we have put a corrupt organization in charge of our security.

They need to stage public activities like these to help build their public image and legitimacy in the face of looming behind the scenes turmoil and scandal which they will not be able to contain or hide for much longer.

The funny thing is that they can't even get these staged terrorist activities right.

It is going to be very hard to make the case for new "special powers" now.

But they will try, if all else fails they should get their mob buddies to use the age old but very effective tactics of threats, bribery, extortion and if necessary murder.

And they all fall down....

The FBI should be raiding Acorn offices.
Send the IRS after them also.

I had images of the keystone cops running around falling all over themselves trying to break into apartments and offices.

Buwahahahahaha

This makes no sense...

The FBI announce they are planning raids on a "cell based in Denver".

Way to tip them off....

What self-respecting Law Enforcement agency in the world announces they are going to raid a terrorist cell before they do it? Lets not even mention the fact they have detailed the delpoyment of a specialist unit ahead of time too...

I think the NYPD slipped that raid info to the press. The Feds are, obviously, upset with the NYPD.

It's like high school musical, without the good looking kids, the music, the cheesy dance numbers, the screaming fans and the mildly entertaining plotline.

One that is desperately trying to divert both public and government attention away from other much more serious internal issues.

To buy enough time to contain a building monumental internal domestic crisis.

They will fail at that too!

Obama Supports Extending Patriot Act Provisions



The Obama administration supports extending three key provisions of the Patriot Act that are due to expire at the end of the year, the Justice Department told Congress in a letter made public Tuesday.

Read more at: www.huffingtonpost.com...

IMHO, the timing with the raids in NY and the surveillance in Denver are just too darn convenient.

I am still waiting for the ending of the show.

After all this publicity, I'm pretty sure they are going to locate a terrorist to justify all the raids they are doing.

We're being intellectually scammed.

I'm really not sure what to believe anymore.

I feel that this is unconstitutional somehow. How can people support this? How can people honestly support the FBI being on the streets and doing something that police people are supposed to do? This is more conditioning to let people be more willing to accept martial law.

I wouldn't use the word intellectual in this case, obviously their bungled stupidity hardly challenges any intellectual person.

Desperation only adds to their problems.

They can distract the people for a while, and address congress along with government officials and use every stalling tactic in their book, but ultimately the bad apples will fall and be exposed as they lay rotting for all to see.

As for me, I have to run now, literally.

I'll be back!

the nypd have no jurisdiction in Colorado. This case, supposedly, stems from a guy that was under serveillance in Colorado.

Cases like this one, are the very reason the FBI are needed.
