New York Dominates FBI’s Top 10 Stories of the Week


New York City heads the FBI’s top stories of the week, starting with Najibullah Zazi’s guilty plea to charges of trying to blow up the city’s subway system.

No. 2 on the FBI list is practically the same thing: the indictment of Zarein Ahmedzay and Adis Medunjanin in Zazi’s plot.

New York’s also No. 4, No. 7, and No. 8 on the list. Who’s worse than us?!

In fourth place is the arrest of Bernie Madoff’s accountant henchman, Daniel Bonventre. In seventh place is hedge hog Arthur Nadel’s guilty plea to 15 counts of securities fraud. In eighth place is Brookhaven Memorial Hospital’s agreement to pay nearly $3 million to the government for Medicare fraud. The Long Island hospital illegally inflated its charges to patients.

Special mention to the ninth place loser, Robert Cimino of Syracuse. He pled guilty in suburban D.C. to selling pirated software.
