An excellent round-up of the Kennedy Airport bomb plot arrests from Guyana’s Stabroek News:
Those charged with [Adbul] Kadir are former JFK worker Russell Defreitas, a Guyanese-born US citizen; Kareem Ibrahim, an imam from Trinidad; and Guyanese Abdel Nur. Kadir and Ibrahim were arrested in Trinidad, while Defreitas was held in New York. Up to press time, however, Nur had not been apprehended and was thought to be still at large in Trinidad.
UPDATE. From the above link, some interesting background on one of the alleged plotters:
Kadir was a member of the PNC’s Young Socialist Movement … he said that Eusi Kwayana of Ascria had influenced him in the direction of developing a certain scholarship to understand the socialist principles to go beyond situations as they appeared on the surface … he had also been influenced by the writings of Walter Rodney, Kwame Nkrumah, Eldridge Cleaver and Malcolm X.
He was attempting to fly to Venezuela when he was arrested.
UPDATE II. Trinidad speaks out:
“Good going FBI. These terrorist dont understand the meaning of life they only understand death and destruction. Radical Islam is a stain on the face of the Earth and I support all efforts to have that stain wiped off the face of the Earth”
“my heart goes out to the poor people of my country … dont worry trini we will rise together through these times forge from the love of liberty ,let truth and justice take its course” – british soldier london
“Why would anyone want to spoil trinidad as a beautiufull country.And to link us it with other horrbile counries. It was a shock to hear what our people did.Shane on them.” – 12 year old Alexis
“It makes me sick to my stomach every time I hear Trinidad mentioned on the news. I never imagined that our country would be named in the same breath as terroist!” – trini in america.
“As a Trinidadian and a Us Citizen and Also serving in the US Army this sickens me, that a Trinidadian will belief all this radical stupidness. We caribbean people already deal with so much here now these idiots but another barrier in our way.”
“I know that Trinidad is a nice place and just a few bad apples like every other place but the FBI do a very good job in taking care of those bad apples and may the good Lord bless them hats off to the FBI keep up the good work”
“what has my beloved country come to ? everybody knows who these trouble – makers are and we all know when these radicals started their mischeif and when it could have been put to an end ! no law abiding citizen will ask questions – we just want to be rid of them and their extremist actions – robbing , murdering , kidnapping and now terror plots to bomb another country that has done nothing to us . the normal and true muslims of T & T and the world at large should have a much bigger voice denouncing the actins of all these radicals !! but instead we hardly hear anything from them”
“These perpetrators would now see the hands of American justice meted out to them. It may be long before they get the verdict they truly deserve but, have they played with a sleeping giant. These muslims fanatics are trying in so many ways to cause destruction to others because of their selfishness. They would never succeed however.”
“Why is it that since 9/11 only people from the religion of Islam are being accused of either plotting or being responsible for terrorist attacks? What is it about that religion that makes some of its followers so prone to such violence?”
UPDATE III. “Pops is a real community leader.”
