What Plot?

The news has been horrendous for awhile now with the bad storms the mass killings in Vegas…the only thing that has been missing from the news these days is those pricks in ISIS.

Well most readers know that I keep an eye on terrorism, international relations and conflicts…..just so my readers can to educated for the day…..

It is not news that they are fighting for their very lives in Iraq and Syria and Egypt and Yemen…in other parts of the world.

Have they given up on extending their horrendous attacks beyond the Middle East?

Hell NO!  A recent plot here in the US was stomped on……

An alleged plot to attack New York City—detonating bombs in Times Square and the subway system while shooting civilians at concert venues—in the summer of 2016 “in the name of ISIS” was stopped by the FBI, according to newly unsealed records. “Three men allegedly plotted to conduct bombings and shootings in heavily populated areas of New York City during the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan,” ABC News quotes the Justice Department as saying in a statement. A 19-year-old Canadian citizen named Abdulrahman el Bahnasawy allegedly bought materials to make bombs only to send them to what turned out to be an undercover FBI agent, WABC reports. El Bahnasawy was arrested in May 2016 after traveling to the US and renting a cabin in New Jersey.

Also arrested over the past year were two alleged accomplices: 19-year-old Tahla Haroon and 37-year-old Russell Salic. Haroon, an American citizen living in Pakistan, allegedly planned to meet with bomb experts there before joining El Bahnasawy in the US, the New York Daily News reports. Haroon was arrested in Pakistan and is awaiting extradition. Salic was arrested in his native Philippines and is also awaiting extradition. He was allegedly providing financing for the plot. El Bahnasawy has pleaded guilty. He allegedly said he wanted to “create the next 9/11.”

ISIS may be forgotten these days…but they are far from GONE!

  1. Chuq, terrorist groups often work through a loose affiliation of unrelated groups cells. For instance, the Islamic group in the Southwest Philippines, which has recently been in the news, has existed for decades, and decades, since long before it pledged allegiance to ISIS. And before the, it pledged to al-Qaeda, perhaps somewhat like a franchise.

    And then, when they are been, and disappear from the battlefield, they pop-up in ones and twos, all over the globe. And, don’t forget the lone wolfs!

  2. Same thing over here. For every attack that goes ahead, around six are foiled by the secret service in advance. Moving money electronically, and using the Internet to contact each other, seems to be the weakness in modern-day terrorist activity.
    Best wishes, Pete.
