Two terror fangirls from Queens who went gaga for al Qaeda and ISIS including one who carried around Osama bin Ladens photo copped to bomb-building charges Friday that could land them in prison for up to 20 years.
Noelle Velentzas, 31, and Asia Siddiqui, 35, could wind up in prison for 20 years after pleading guilty in Brooklyn federal court to attempting to build a weapon of mass destruction.
Between 2013 and 2015, the pair plotted to set off explosives in New York. They researched how to make car bombs and visited Home Depot in Queens to browse for bomb-building materials with a woman they knew as Mel who was actually an undercover agent who caught them on tape talking about their murderous fantasies.
Noelle, Mel and I discussed the need to prepare for jihad, Siddiqui told Brooklyn federal Judge Sterling Johnson Jr., reading from a prepared written statement.
The two women taught each other chemistry and electrical skills that could be used to build bombs drawing inspiration from terror attacks launched on US soil like the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
In a December 27, 2014, meeting, the women also discussed the possibility of attacking the funeral for NYPD officer Rafael Ramos, who was fatally shot alongside partner Wenjian Liu while they sat in their patrol car in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Two Queens Women Plead Guilty in Connection with Plan to Build Explosive Devices Similar to Those Used in Prior Terrorist Attacks in the United States
The evidence for the case against the women included objects found in their apartments, allegedly including propane gas tanks, soldering tools, pipes, a pressure cooker, fertilizer, flux, machetes, daggers, and bomb recipes.
Velentzas was arrested by the FBI in her home along with her alleged accomplice, Asia Siddiqui, on April 2, 2015
Between August 2014-April 2015, Velentzas and Siddiqui met with an undercover agent whom the two women believed to be a fellow jihadist. During this time, the women allegedly educated themselves on how to build explosives, and collected potential bomb-building supplies from stores such as Home Depot. The evidence for the case against the women included objects found in their apartments, allegedly including a propane gas tanks, soldering tools, pipes, a pressure cooker, fertilizer, flux, machetes, daggers, and bomb recipes.
Asia Siddiqui was born in Saudi Arabia and is a U.S. citizen
Typical violent Democrats.
See, the facillitators of terrorism aren’t just in the Trump campaign and such, they instigate everywhere.
Even terrorists need gov’t help to get things done. Hillary needed GPS.
The FBI: Never be a follower of potential crime, Lead! Because even just potential criminals need gov’t help.
I’m pretty sure they weren’t Baptists.
This shows how effective our anti-terrorist sting operations are.
Jihadis cannot organize or they are found out.
So, obviously we should control at least one of these, it's too expensive to control all of them or completely ban any. The question is: which ones?
I say we should ban--'scuse me, control-- flux and machetes. True, you don't need a machete to eat, but some people have weeds, kudzu and ivy. We don't need flux either, without which no respectably modern bomb can be reliably constructed. However some people, bizarre though it may seem, claim to do electronics as a hobby. These people should be accommodated.
A registry and back-ground check should suffice without creating an undue burden on the minority that needs them for legitimate purposes.
'Fair and Rational flux and machete control,'our credo, our 'cri de coeur,--as soon as we've gotten rid of the guns.
Plenty to blame -- Obama, a.k.a. DeBlasio, Occasional Cortex, and of course, the so-called news media.
None of this changes the fact that the NY Post is an anti-second amendment, pro boot licking of the NYPD piece of feces.
When the women were arrested, police found propane gas tanks, soldering tools, car bomb instructions, jihadist literature, machetes and several knives in their homes, the release said.
Lets not jump to any conclusions here folks ...
