This all seems a tad too convenient. Firstly, no details of the individual, secondly another great way to control people into believing Terrorism is still a thread, and thirdly he had the crappy Inspire magazine article. Is that it? He could get better shit off other *cough* sources! He was making a match-head pipe bomb, for fucks sake.
A resident of New York has been arrested on suspicion of planning to bomb targets including police cars and postal offices, the city's mayor said.
Jose Pimentel, 27, was charged with terrorism-related offences, Michael Bloomberg said at a news conference in New York.
Mr Pimentel allegedly got instructions on how to build a pipe bomb from al-Qaeda's Inspire magazine, published by radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed by a US drone attack in Yemen in September.
"He talked about changing his name to Osama Hussein, to celebrate his heroes, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein," Commissioner Kelly said.
Mayor Bloomberg showed the news conference a video reconstruction of the impact of the devices Pimentel is alleged to have been planning to use.
The footage shows a car being destroyed by an explosion.
