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.
Trinidad is only the size of Rhode Island. Trinidadian reaction here; see also reports from the NY Post and London Times.
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.”

- As I pointed out late in the thread of an earlier post, when I first heard about the “Kennedy Terror Plot”, I was hoping that they had finally collared Ted.
I believe three of these creeps were illegal aliens who had been in the U.S. for years. This is, I think, probably the biggest problem people have with “regularizing the status” of illegal immigrants (i.e., “amnesty”): the complete absence of a serious plan to control the flow of illegal immigrants, going forward. This matter is not any longer just about economics and cultural assimilation, but about domestic security and terrorism.

RebeccaH, RebeccaH, RebeccaH, I’m sure you meant to say “with no hole in the floor for a toilet.”
How about “in cells stacked one atop the other, with nothing but a hole in the floor for a toilet”? The one who tells us the most gets the upper cell.

- Pre 9-11, the idea of flying a passenger-filled plane into a skyscraper was also “outlandish”. Pre Manhattan Project, the idea of one single plane carrying one single bomb being able to kill a few hundred thousand people was, once again, “outlandish”.
In this day and age, I’m not willing to base my safety as concerns Muslim death wishes on what is outlandish and what is not outlandish. If they are plotting to kill, then they go to jail.
- #8: Averted disasters just don’t have the “oomph!” of disasters carried all the way to their grisly fruition; not nearly as good copy as smoking ruins with thousands of dead bodies. So the press (some of it, anyway, like this genius at The Age) turns the plan into a mere caricature of terrorism, and invites us to snicker at the federal agents who, presumably, have been sweltering in a surveillance van somewhere, listening to this plotter say things like, “Hey, mon, who goin’ to plant de dynamite?’, and this plotter say, “Hey, not me, mon, dot’s some dangerous shit. By de way, can you remember to stop off at de market and buy some Pic-a-Peppa sauce?” No thanks to the cops for doing their job, no sigh of relief at being spared an act of terrorism, just snide jabs. Ernie Pyle this guy ain’t.
- Plus, according to the ABC (funded nby you), it wasn’t a bomb plot at all.
It was only a ‘bomb plot’.
Where would left-wing media be without inverted commas?
- #8 Regarding the Aged.
I’m sure if the authoritites had moved in any time under 18 months there would be bleating all round about how we need more evidence.

Well honey, whoever you are, literalism has unfortunately been mainstream in Islam for many centuries. And these maniacs believe in killing all the infidels. It is in their book and they carry it out. That is why so many of them do it.

“What is it about that religion that makes some of its followers so prone to such violence?”
An excellent question that the MSM and PC politicians all ignore.
The answer? Islam is not the “religion of peace”, it’s the “religion of pieces”….of infidels.

- I have a friend from Trinidad. Interesting place. She’s of Indian background and Hindu.
Long time before Sept. 11, 2001, she was very angry at Saudi money being used to subvert her country.Posted by Harry Eagar on 2007 06 03 at 11:52 PM • permalink
Not only was the idea outlandish and highly unlikely to succeed…
Highjacking civilian airliners and flying them into buildings seemed pretty outlandish and highly unlikely to succeed before 9/11.

Before the oil runs out, the Saudis are determined to spread their death cult worldwide, and associated benefits accrue, lest they have to return to herding goats and defending the honor of a female camel.
- #3 That’s not so fanciful, Paco.
I was unaware that the people of Trinidad were such racists.

- The ABC is being unkind. These ‘bombers’ did their best. We must remember it’s the thought that counts.
Curious the appeal Wahhabist hatred has for both the very stupid and the very educated. But how smart is it to do this kind of thing, especially when you succeed? Maybe these guys ain’t so stupid after all.
- “I was unaware that the people of Trinidad were such racists.”
People like me are often accused of being racist. Ironically, other Americans who make the accusation always seems to come from adherents of the American political party that championed slavery and segregation.

- Sorry to be serious.
Until the West appreciates and absorbs the way politics is played in the Middle East, (and by viral action in the expats in the west) we will be hamstrung by concepts of fairness which have no place in the equation.

However, this is more what I had in mind . I know I’ve said it until it has become tedious, but with liberals of the Kennedy stripe, the primary enemy is always to be found at home.

- I quit reading Tom Clancy when he used the complete destruction of Congress (by a plane hitting the building) to get Jack Ryan into the presidency. I was disgusted and threw the book across the room. The worm has turned.
I might have begun to read him again, until he acquiesced in changing the terrorists from jihadists to neo-Nazis in the movie The Sum of All Fears after 9-11. He also spoke out against going to war. Thought it was the absolutely wrong thing to do.
The United States has everything it needs to win this war against a bunch of 7th century primitivists—except the philosophy and moral backbone. Without that, we may as well be fighting with sticks and stones.
I worry more and more about the outcome. How can we hope to defeat this enemy when so many not only ignore the danger, but spend their time in serious contemplation of Gore’s balls warming.
- It’s nice the see that the population of Trinidad hasn’t been educated to the point of idiocy. Too bad we can’t say that about our own respective countries.
I apologize for being so serious. I’m usually a staunch proponent of laughing in the face of evil. When you look at actual evil, you cannot help but recognize how completely impotent it is. The only thing it is able to accomplish is destruction. The only thing that gives evil its power is the sanction of the good—as in sitting down and having a chat with the various thugs in the Middle East and giving them credit and validation they could never manage on their own. I can laugh at evil. It’s the so-called good I’m having trouble with.
