2 Women Arrested for NYC Bomb Plot

Recommended Posts

Two Queens women were arrested Thursday for allegedly plotting to use weapons of mass destruction in the United States. 

 

In a complaint for the U.S. attorney, former roommates Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, are alleged to have been procuring possible bomb-making materials, such as fertilizer, like the ones used in the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City, as well as propane gas tanks and online instructions from a jihadist web publication.

“We are committed to doing everything in our ability to detect, disrupt, and deter attacks by homegrown violent extremists,” U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in a statement. “We remain firm in our resolve to hold accountable anyone who would seek to terrorize the American people, whether by traveling abroad to commit attacks overseas or by plotting here at home.”

 

According to the complaint, both female defendants were active supporters of al Qaeda, with Siddiqui publishing a poem in an al Qaeda magazine in 2009 that glorified violent jihad. Velentzas allegedly told an undercover F.B.I. agent recently that she and Siddiqui were “citizens of the Islamic State,” and had described Osama bin Laden as one of her heroes.

 

In the complaint, the two defendants allegedly discussed their intent to attack a target in the U.S. At one point, the two discussed the possibility of attacking a military facility, as it was a better option than a place where “regular people” congregated, like Herald Square in Manhattan. As recently as March 22, according to the complaint, Siddiqui and Velentzas were in the process of preparing propane tanks as possible explosive devices, after spending considerable time acquiring materials and studying plans.  

 

Both women were inspired, prosecutors allege, by AQAP, ISIS and the Boston bombers. Like the Tsarnaevs, they allegedly planned to build bombs. Velentzas once pulled a knife from her bra and demonstrated how to stab someone to show Siddiqui what she would do if attacked. "Why can't we be some real bad bitches?" Velentzas said. 

 

On that same day, Velentzas allegedly told the undercover agent that she didn’t understand why people were traveling to wage jihad overseas when they could be “pleasing Allah” by committing terrorist acts in the U.S.  


Both were scheduled to appear before U.S. magistrate judge Viktor Pohorelsky on Thursday afternoon. They face a maximum sentence of life imprisonment if convicted.

Can we please concentrate on this and how these women don't have an agenda at all, but to be a center of attention

We're talking some kind of psychosis here, probably.
