Qazi Confessions

"Brothers plead guilty in terror plot" Associated Press  March 13, 2015

MIAMI — Two Pakistani-born brothers pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of plotting a bombing attack against New York City landmarks and assaulting two deputy US marshals while in custody.

The pleas were entered in Miami federal court by 32-year-old Sheheryar Alam Qazi and Raees Alam Qazi, 22. The pair have been in federal custody since late November 2012 after Raees Qazi returned from New York by bus following an aborted attack, possibly to include bombs made of common chemicals and Christmas tree lights.

Assistant US Attorney Karen Gilbert, reading from a statement signed by both brothers, said Raees Qazi had unsuccessfully attempted to enter Afghanistan to join Islamic extremists while visiting Pakistan in 2011.

I wonder at what training camp they stayed.

After that, she said, he decided to become a ‘‘lone wolf’’ who would find a way to attack the United States from within.

US District Judge Beth Bloom set sentencing for June 5 for both men.


I have a confession to make: I'm sorry for posting another obvious case of patsy plotters being framed by the FBI.
