Two Jihadists Convicted in 2007 Plan to Bomb JFK Fuel Storage Tanks

Russell Defreitas, a former JFK cargo handler, and Abdul Kadir, once a member of Guyana’s parliament, have been convicted on multiple conspiracy charges in their plan to attack John F. Kennedy International Airport’s fuel depot back in 2007.

TTB readers may recall that, when this plot was uncovered, the media ridiculed it as far-fetched. The New York Times relegated the story to page 37 of its daily paper edition. Evidently, a jury in New York decided that the plot was serious enough to send these two Jihadist terrorists to prison for a long time.

Defreitas and Kadir sought to kill thousands of innocent civilians and damage the US economy by  blowing up the fuel tanks at JFK airport, as well as the pipelines that run underground through a nearby Queens residential area.

Secret FBI recordings revealed Defreitas boasting of his familiarity of JFK Airport and the potential weaknesses of its security.

“For years, I’ve been watching them,” Defreitas remarked of the huge fuel tanks while scouting for potential targets with an undercover FBI informant.

Defreitas also pointed out the seeming absence of any security, quipping, “No solider. Nothing at all.”

In other recordings, Defreitas raged about punishing America with an attack that would “dwarf 9/11.” He also can be heard telling the FBI informant that his U.S. citizenship gave him cover to conduct Jihad:

“They don’t expect nobody in this country to do something like this,” he said. “They have their eyes on foreigners, not me.”
