Four Convicted in NY Synagogue Bomb Plot

These guys are all skinheads, right?

The FBI assigned Hussain in 2008 to infiltrate a mosque in Newburgh, about an hour north of New York. After meeting Cromitie, he told him he was a representative of a Pakistani terror organization that was eager to finance a holy war on U.S. soil.

Prosecutors alleged that in meetings with Hussain, the 44-year-old Cromitie hatched the scheme to blow up the synagogues in the Bronx with remote-controlled bombs. They say he also recruited the other men Onta Williams, 34, David Williams, 29, and Payen, 28 to help him shoot down cargo planes at the Air National Guard base in Newburgh with heat-seeking missiles.

Agents arrested the men in 2009 after they planted the devices fakes supplied by the FBI in the Riverdale section of the Bronx while under heavy surveillance.

In one of several videos played at trial, the men could be seen practicing with a shoulder missile launcher and praying together in a bugged warehouse in Connecticut two weeks before the planned attack. At the end of the tape, Cromitie, two of his cohorts and the informant bow their heads in prayer.

I went to CAIR to see their reaction -- you know, since they are constantly telling us they are against terrorism, yada, yada, yada --- crickets.
