“Colorado Man” (From Pakistan) Arrested In New York City Terror Plot
The “Colorado man” mentioned in this story is actually a Pakistani immigrant who plotted to blow up transportation links in New York City, according to authorities.
The man under FBI investigation for alleged ties to a New York subway terror plot has admitted he has ties to Al Qaeda and is in negotiations to plead guilty to a terror charge, FOX News confirmed Friday.
Najibullah Zazi reportedly told officials that he had received explosives training and his possible guilty plea would be part of a deal to cooperate with the government. […]
Zazi, who authorities have said trained at a Pakistani terror camp, reportedly had bomb-making diagrams on a computer that he carried with him on a visit to New York. Zazi`s attorney had denied these allegations.
The laptop was in Zazi`s car as Zazi drove from Colorado to New York City, arriving the day before the 8th anniversary of the attacks of Sept. 11. [Colo. Man in Suspected NYC Subway Plot Admits Ties to Al Qaeda, September 18, 2009 ]
Naturally, the local Muslim fellows are shocked, shocked: Colorado Muslims shocked by FBI terror probe
Ziyad Alsoor, president of the Colorado Muslim Society in Denver, said he does not know Zazi but was shocked by the news. Alsoor said 30,000 Muslims call Colorado home.
“It seems like any time anyone of Muslim descent is investigated, all the news media goes crazy,” he said. “This doesn`t happen to Christians.”
