Donald Trump has repeatedly emphasized that terrorism is still a major threat to the United States.
A major news story just proved him right – again.
A 23-year old named Ashiqui Alam was just arrested – for planning a spectacular terror attack in New York.
Alam is a Bangledashi citizen living in New York.
The New York Post reports:
Alam, a Bangladeshi citizen living in Jackson Heights, Queens, allegedly discussed buying suicide vests and hand grenades — but opted instead to try and shoot up the Crossroads of the World, the documents said. There was no indication he trained overseas, a law-enforcement source told The Post. Alam was charged with knowingly receiving two firearms with obliterated serial numbers in Brooklyn as part of the plot.
In the charging documents, Alam expressed his desire to destroy the new World Trade Center in lower Manhattan with “probably a rocket launcher, like a huge one.”
Alam also praised Osama bin Laden, claiming that his “mission is a complete success, thousands of American soldiers died and trillions of their monies gone in the war.”
What a sick young man. We can only hope that Alam spends the rest of his life in jail.
