    Farooque Ahmed Arrested For Plotting DC Terrorist Attack

    WASHINGTON — A Virginia man has been arrested and indicted on charges he tried to help people he believed were al-Qaida operatives in planning to bomb subway stations in and around the nation's capital.

    The FBI says the public was never in danger because its agents were aware of the man's activities before the alleged planning took place and monitored him throughout.

    I'd like to know what first tipped them off.

    Probably but they had to have had a reason to lure him in, no?

    Terrorists, or those plotting mass murder, should never see freedom again. Hope they fry this guy if he's indeed guilty.

    Ahmed took video of four northern Virginia subway stations – Arlington Cemetery, Courthouse, Pentagon City and Crystal City, which is near the Pentagon

    I don't even know how he got away with this - when my son first moved here he pulled out his cell phone while in the Metro Station at Pentagon City to take a picture of something for his friends back home - he said the next thing he knew 3 guys were holding him face down on the ground and 4 guys in suits were demanding ID, frisking him and examining his cell phone contents.

    The Metro is not camera friendly.

    I really hate to bring this up but could they have been trying to avoid profiling? Or...could they have seen him all along and were just letting him gather up enough rope?

    I'm quite sure there was some profiling going on. My son is pretty big - 6'3" and 210 pounds - and he's heavily tattooed. Plus, he carries himself with "attitude." (Altough he'll deny it if asked.)

    He's a pretty alert guy - and he says he doesn't even know where these guys all came from. They had to be pretty good to take him down that fast.

    They let him go and even apologized - no harm no foul....but they erased the picture he'd taken anyhow.

    Doesn't seem logical to me. The security in Metro is mediocre, at best.

    No Comment other than instead of profiling and harrassing these poor terrorists we should be going after that God Damn Tea Party and Glenn Beck.
