Associated Press reports:

Three people were arrested and one other was being sought Saturday in connection to a plan to set off explosives in a fuel line that feeds John F. Kennedy International Airport and runs through residential neighborhoods, officials close to the investigation said …

The plot posed no threat to air safety or the public, the FBI said Saturday.

Certain residents in certain neighbourhoods may disagree. The arrested men are described as “Guyanese” and “in Trinidad”, but it won’t be a surprise if future reports indicate their adherance to extremist Presbyterianism; possibly they are Presbyterianists, as Andrew Sullivan might render the term. AP’s account includes these underreported incidents:

A year ago, seven men were arrested in what officials called the early stages of a plot to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago and destroy FBI offices and other buildings.

A month later, authorities broke up a plot to bomb underwater New York City train tunnels to flood lower Manhattan.

And six people were arrested a month ago in an alleged plot to unleash a bloody rampage on Fort Dix in New Jersey.
