Four Muslims Arrested in NYC Terror Plot

21 MAY 2009: The FBI has made four arrests in an alleged New York City terrorism plot. Initial reports are that the four had been scheming to blow up a Jewish synagogue in the Bronx with a car bomb (VBIED).  The suspects also allegedly attempted to procure stinger missiles (MANPADS) to shoot down military aircraft near West Point. At least three appear to be recent converts to Islam, according to law enforcement sources.

A full investigative report - including details that have NOT been publicly released - will be posted shortly. The Northeast Intelligence Network issued a specific warning about this six months ago.
