FOX NEWS: Federal authorities have arrested a man who they say was plotting to attack the Federal Reserve Building in lower Manhattan, just blocks from the World Trade Center site. According to Rick Leventhal, the suspect is a Bangladeshi national who traveled to the U.S. in January for the sole purpose of carrying out a terrorist attack. He raised red flags after he posted comments about jihad online. In trying to recruit others to form a terror cell in the U.S., the suspect came across an undercover FBI agent who the suspect thought was someone who also wanted to commit a terrorist act. The undercover agent provided him with 20 50 pound bags of what was supposed to be explosive material. This morning, they put that 1,000 pounds of material in a van and drove to the Federal Reserve Bank. The suspect then tried to detonate the “bomb,” which was of course fake.
