They were former classmates at a New York high school, both on a mission to join the Taliban and fight U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

But when Zarein Ahmedzay and Najibullah Zazi arrived in Pakistan in the summer of 2008, two high-ranking al-Qaida operatives gave them another set of marching orders.

"They told us we would be more useful if we returned to New York City ... to conduct operations," Ahmedzay said Friday in a guilty plea that offered more chilling details of a foiled plot attack on the New York City subways last fall.

Asked by a judge in federal court in Brooklyn what kind of operations, he responded: "Suicide-bombing operations."

What I find amazing is that these two went back to NYC to do exactly what was requested.

Talk about mind-numbed robots! I hate to think all Muslims are this stupid.

Al-Qaeda leaders said to have ordered attack on New York subway system

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/04/23/AR2010042302807.html

“Two top al-Qaeda leaders ordered an attack on the New York subway system, in what authorities call one of the most serious terrorism plots on American soil since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, before they were apparently killed in U.S. missile strikes, a criminal defendant in the plot and law enforcement officials said Friday.

Ahmedzay, 24, told a judge that he, Zazi and another person met along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in August 2008 with two top al-Qaeda officials, who ordered them to return to the United States and conduct attacks. The primary target was the New York City subway, where the group planned to detonate potent explosives. “

Read the koranus and you will understand.

Its called the “religion of feces” for a reason. You have to have sh*t for brains to buy into it.
