NYC Terror Groupies Wanted to Be ‘Bad Bitches’ With BombsBy Shane Harris
They worshipped domestic terrorists, and tried to follow in their footsteps. But when these two New York City women got serious about their homemade bombs, the FBI swooped in.
A pair of Queens, New York, women indicted on terrorism charges Thursday were jihadist groupies who idolized, studied, and even befriended some of the world’s most notorious terrorists—all in the hopes they might one day “make history” and pull of a major attack in the United States, law enforcement officials allege.
A lengthy criminal complaint unsealed in federal court Thursday describes how Noelle Velentzas and Asia Siddiqui repeatedly called Osama bin Laden a hero, modeled themselves after terrorists like the Boston Marathon bombers, and even drew inspiration and bomb-making ideas from right-wing extremists who blew up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
[T]he women worked with an undercover law enforcement officer who isn’t identified in the complaint to build a bomb out of commercially-available materials: a pressure cooker, propane gas cylinders, fertilizer, or household chemicals.
