NYC Authorities Nab Would-Be Terrorist

The New York Police Department’s anti-terrorism unit arrested an alleged terrorist on Saturday. Police say he had planned to bomb police departments, post offices and returning U.S. soldiers near the city.

The suspect, 27-year-old Jose Pimentel, is described as an al-Qaida sympathizer who had a fascination with Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein and even referred to himself as Osama Hussein, according to Infowars.

Authorities said on Sunday that the Dominican Republic native was using his New York apartment as a factory for making bombs to use in attacks.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the suspect’s uncle, who shared the apartment, said that the young man had converted to Islam two years ago. Authorities said the suspect was inspired by the American-born al-Qaida preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, and had accelerated a plot to make bombs after al-Awlaki was killed in Yemen in September.

According to officials, Pimentel ran a blog, trueislam1.com, where he published articles discussing Islamic religious issues. The site contains sections dedicated to such things as defining what jihad means to Muslims and why it is superior to traditional war.

The terrorist plotter followed bomb-making instructions from Inspire Magazine, an al-Qaida propaganda outlet, authorities said.
