The thing that caught our eye in the plot to blow up John F. Kennedy International Airport and its oil lines concerns a detail in respect of the arrest of one of the key Guyanese suspects. It was the fact that the former member of the Guyanese legislature who was fingered in the plot, Abdul Kadir, was arrested in Trinidad on his way to Caracas, Venezuela. According to Mr. Kadir's wife, who was quoted in the Guyanese press, he was there to pick up an Iranian visa that would enable him to attend an Islamic conference in Tehran.
No doubt we will learn more about this plot as the weeks go on. Our sense of the intelligence community is that it is reserving its judgment, though clearly congratulations are in order for Commissioner Kelly, the United States attorney in Brooklyn, Roslynn Mauskopf, and the other officials involved in breaking this case. But our attention has been riveted for some time on growing evidence that the Iranian regime has been moving aggressively to gain influence in our hemisphere, and the big surprise in the latest case is only that it took so long for something to develop.
It was back on January 16 that we issued an editorial in these columns called "Enemy in Our Back Yard," reporting on how left-wing, anti-American leaders in Latin America have been rolling out the red carpet for President Ahmadinejad. At the time, Mr. Ahmadinejad was visiting Latin America for the second time in four months. In Venezuela, he was received at the airport by President Chavez. "Welcome to Venezuela, where Iran is beloved," the Caracas daily El Universal quoted Mr Chavez as saying.

“Evidence tied Kadir to accused Iranian terrorist -FBI investigator says in JFK bomb plot case”

SNIPPET: “An FBI officer has sworn in an affidavit that former PNCR parliamentarian Abdul Kadir, indicted over a conspiracy to blow up the JFK airport in 2007, had links to Iranian Moshen Rabbani who was charged in Argentina for masterminding a deadly attack on a Jewish centre.”
SNIPPET: “Rabbani-who was a cultural attaché at the Iranian embassy in Argentina in 1994- is being sought for allegedly masterminding the 1994 car-bombing that killed 85 people and injured hundreds more at the Jewish Mutual Association of Argentina (AMIA).
The FBI agent said that Kadir- whose only contact with the US was back in 1996 when he was intransit on his way to and from The Bahamas- is linked to the plot through telephone conversations and surveillance.
The officer argued that the search by the Guyanese lawmen and those in Trinidad, who had examined his luggage after he was arrested in that country on his way to Iran through Venezuela, were all done in accordance with the laws of the two countries.”
SNIPPET: “Kadir and Defreitas along with Kareem Ibrahim, an imam from Trinidad and another Guyanese Abdel Nur have been charged with conspiring to blow up JFK airport, tanks storing aviation fuel and underground fuel pipelines in 2007.”
