FBI NEWS RELEASE: $65,000 Reward Offered for Information in Search for Bomber in 2008 Times Square Attack.
Today, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New York City Police Department announced a reward of up to $65,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the suspect or suspects involved in the unsolved 2008 bombing of the United States Armed Forces Recruiting Station in Times Square. Also released today are never-before-seen video of the suspect(s) and a picture of the explosive device. The suspect(s) may be connected to two other unsolved bombings in New York City—one at the British Consulate in 2005 and the other at the Mexican Consulate in 2007.
Early on the morning of Thursday, March 6, 2008, a bomb exploded in New York’s Times Square at the Armed Forces Recruiting Station. The suspect rode a blue Ross bicycle west on 37th Street, took a right up Sixth Avenue, and made a left on 47th Street before turning left down Seventh Avenue. The suspect got off his bike near the recruiting station at West 43rd Street and Seventh Avenue, placed the explosive device at the recruiting station, lit a fuse, and fled the scene on the bicycle. Although the suspect appears to be working alone, he or she may have had a lookout or surveillance team of as many as five other individuals in Times Square at the time of the attack. The suspect then rode his or her bike south on Broadway before turning left on 38th Street. The bike was later recovered in a dumpster near Madison Avenue and 38th Street. see more at http://www.fbi.gov/newyork/press-releases/2013/65-000-reward-offered-for-information-in-search-for-bomber-in-2008-times-square-attackYousef al-Khattab fled New York City: Queens Jihadi Yousef Al-Khattab Sets Up Shop In Tetouan Morocco The Home To 30 Iraq Suicide Car Bombers. Revolution Muslim’s 2008 co-founders are Yousef al-Khattab and Jesse Curtis Morton. Yousef al-Khattab claims no link to terrorism and just wants to live the peaceful life in Tetouan, Morocco (see his photo above), but he is a liar. Yousef al-Khattab has left the USA because the NYPD was just about to arrest him on bomb threat charges and I’m sure they were looking at any connections between Queens Jihadi Yousef al-Khattab and Queens subway bomb plotter Najibullah Zazi.
Yousef al-Khattab was the subject of two NYPD open criminal investigations into “bomb threats.” I spoke with NYPD Detective on Sunday 2/15/2009 about Yousef al-Khattab, they have opened two criminal investigations on him, one about the threats against the Jewish School and temple in NYC and second they are also looking at him for the “bombs bombs bombs” cards sent out last July 2008 to Fox News reporter Kelly Vick and others in NYC.
PI Bill Warner's post Sunday, July 27, 2008... NEW YORK JIHADI, YOUSEF al-KHATTAB, BOMBS-BOMBS-BOMBS AND TWO RECENT FOX NEWS INTERVIEWS. NEW YORK, N.Y. — New York City cabbie, Yousef al-Khattab. who operates an extremist Islamic anti-American Web site that features violent images including mocking the deaths of GIs in Iraq says he’s doing the country a service by “exposing the truth.” See FOX News TV produced video on Yousef al-Khattab.
At times, al-Khattab’s postings are farcical, such as a picture of him holding the book “Nuclear Jihad” with a wry smile on his face. Other messages call for radical Muslim rule worldwide. Under the law FBI spokesman Richard Kolko said it is difficult to bring criminal charges against the operators of Web sites like RevolutionMuslim.com unless specific threats are made against an individual or individuals.
Kolko while not speaking directly about RevolutionMuslim said radical sites like these are not often prosecuted. “It’s usually a First Amendment right if they don’t cross the threshold of making any threats,” said Kolko. “There’s nothing we should or could do.” “Until the rhetoric reaches the point in which it’s no longer protected speech under the first amendment, it’s hard to stop it,” said security expert, Harvey Kushner.
SUNDAY 7/27/2008......Terror Threat is in the Cards were mailed last week to the homes of seven city residents, including former Fox News television producer Kelley Vick and a person in the 26th Police Precinct, which covers West Harlem, according to Vick and police sources. The card reads: "Bombs! Bombs! Bombs! Lower Manhattan. July, August, September. New York Jihad." Vick, a news producer who left Fox in early July, got the creepy mailing Thursday. She said it arrived at her Chelsea building but did not list her apartment number and had no return address. She went to police on Friday. "It says, 'You're invited to a party, so put on a happy face,' " she said. "There were faces of an elephant, a monkey, like cartoon animals. "Then you open the card, and inside is a piece of periwinkle paper and space for the date and time. That's where it says, 'Bombs! Bombs! Bombs!' in fancy type. "My name is printed on the envelope. The stamp is green with a heart. SEE Fox News TV produced video on Yousef al-Khattab, click here .
