In the name of allah and in accordance with Islamic teachings, these jihadis planned to destroy iconic Western targets and cause as much death and destruction possible. Knowing this Obama has banned "Islamic extremism" and jihad in describing jihad and Islamic terror.
Mind you, back on September 22,2009, when Manhattan was in lockdown and the city, the subway, mass transit systems, sporting events, stadiums, hotels, entertainment complexes were being scoured for Zazi's bombs, Obama was in NYC addressing the UN body, warning of the greatest threat to man -- global warming.
In the upside down world of Obama's America, Obama is in NYC talking about the greatest threat to us and future generations. No, not nuclear holocaust ...... global warming. "President Obama said his administration understands the 'gravity of the climate threat' and is 'determined to act' - even though he said the United States was slow to recognize and respond to the danger of global warming".At the very same time as the jihad has New York (and the free world- dar al harb) in a controlled panic, Obama is selling "the irreversible catastrophe" of global warming.

The unidentified man, who helped plan the plot, is expected to be extradited to the U.S. to betried in Brooklyn Federal Court with Adis Medunjanin and Zarein Ahmedzay of Flushing, Queens, sources said.
The cooperation of would-be lead bomber Najibullah Zazi has helped law enforcement officials piece together a fuller picture of the evil plan to kill innocent straphangers around the 9/11 anniversary last year.
Zazi and his two Queens friends allegedly planned to strap explosives to their bodies and split up, heading for the Grand Central and Times Square stations - the two busiest subway stations in New York City.
They would board trains on the 1, 2, 3 and 6 lines at rush hour and planned to position themselves in the middle of the packed trains to ensure the maximum carnage when they blew themselves up, sources said.
During Zazi's brief visit to Queens from his home in Denver last September, he rode the subway multiple times to the Grand Central and Wall St. stations, scouting where to best spread death and mayhem, the sources said.
There they were recruited by Al Qaeda for the Manhattan "martyrdom" mission.
They received military training at a terror camp in the Waziristan region, and Zazi was taken aside and given special bomb-making training because of his knowledge of the subway system.
The attack was to take place on Sept. 14, 15 or 16 - as soon as the bombs had been assembled - with Sept. 14 the most likely date, sources said.
He discarded the bomb-making equipment and explosives he had gathered and flew back to Denver, where he was arrested a few days later. He began cooperating this year.
