Alleged terrorist plot at the New York Federal Reserve thwarted

An alleged terrorist plot to attack a major U.S. target and tank the economy is foiled by an elaborate FBI sting. The suspect is a 21-year-old student, who came to the U.S. on a student visa from Bangladesh.

Investigators say Quazi Nafis parked what he thought was a 1,000 pound explosive device outside the Federal Reserve in New York City. NYPD says this is the 15th terror plot they've foiled since 9/11. 

CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen discusses the details.

    This is very stupid story from non-resident Bangladeshi and no leeway for his innocence; I have gone through the entire story of that boy from various media and found him totally guilty.

    FBI under covered person has disguised himself as Al-Quida member and actually acted as safeguard against this Rizwan and his fellow accomplishers. This Rizwan is fully guilty and a danger to society. Rizwan has denigrated our country’s image, Bangladeshi people’s good will in the USA. Many Bangladeshi students are serving in the USA with integrity, ethics and reliability. This sort of terrorists should receive highest punishment.
