Federal authorities in New York have arrested a Bangladeshi man with “overseas connections to al-Qaida” who planned to blow up the Federal Reserve.
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis was provided with “inert explosives” by federal agents and closely monitored by the FBI as he tried to act out his plot, according to the Associated Press.
Federal prosecutors said Nafis had proposed several spots for his attack, including the New York Stock Exchange. In a letter claiming responsibility for the Federal Reserve plot, he said he wanted to “destroy America.”
Nafis also provided the feds with a videotaped statement in which he said, “We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom.”
Federal authorities said the public was not in danger at any point during its “sting” operation.
The FBI has arranged a large number of terrorism “stings” since the attacks of September 11, 2001, in order to make the case that it is tracking down and prosecuting terrorists.
A report by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley released in 2011 revealed that it is now common practice for the FBI to create terror plots from scratch and entrap witless and even mentally ill patsies.
“The report reveals that the FBI regularly infiltrates communities where they suspect terrorist-minded individuals to be engaging with others. Regardless of their intentions, agents are sent in to converse within the community, find suspects that could potentially carry out ‘lone wolf’ attacks and then, more or less, encourage them to do so. By providing weaponry, funds and a plan, FBI-directed agents will encourage otherwise-unwilling participants to plot out terrorist attacks, only to bust them before any events fully materialize,” RT reported last August.
The contrived plot will undoubtedly allow the Federal Reserve to make the argument it is now a terrorist target. In recent years, the privately owned banking cartel has come under increasing criticism for its manipulation of the money supply and its penchant for secrecy.
