I have already mentioned this case, where two potential jihadists who wanted to set fire to Jewish synagogues and blow up the Empire State building were captured, and today there are new revelations about one of them. He was a smart dresser and he worked behind a cosmetics counter at Saks fifth avenue. Another salient point about this would be assassin is that he wanted to be a model and an actor.
Whilst it is somewhat easy to make guesses about individuals who dress in white, have a beard and wear a white skull cap, it is a very different story when the potential jihadist is dressing in a very snappy style. He was no doubt hoping to blend in with the population and escape detection. This is just food for thought due to the increased risk and potential for another disaster like the bringing down of the twin towers of the WTC.
There is an extremely detailed news report at the DailyMail UK site, and I suggest that if you do not get this information in the USA that you should take a read of it.
Both individuals already had a criminal record, and had been arrested for burglary. The dapper gentleman was also involved in drug dealing. The police in New York had been on to both of them for some time. It was not a recently hatched plot.
