A History of New Yorkers-Turned-Terrorists Since 9-11

Update, 4/2/15: Two Queens residents, Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, both American citizens, have been charged with conspiring to build a bomb and detonate it at an unnamed target in the United States. In a criminal complaint filed at Brooklyn’s Federal District Court today, the two women, who were roommates at the time, were found to have bought four propane gas tanks, potassium gluconate, and Miracle-Gro, all of which can be used to make bombs. An undercover agent states in the complaint that the women “implied that their goal was to learn how to blow up a bomb from afar rather than conduct a suicide bombing.”
