Feds: We thwarted potential JFK Airport attack

Government authorities in New York today announced three arrests in connection to a ongoing investigation of a plot to blow up a 5-mile-long jet fuel pipeline that runs through numerous neighborhoods, all leading to JFK International Airport. The plot wasn't at an operational stage and the planners didn't have any means to execute it at the time they were arrested. ABCNews.com is reporting that the three men arrested may be linked to Adnan Shukrijumah, one of the most-wanted al-Qaeda leaders who has been known to operate out of Guyana and Trinidad, where the suspects have ties. Authorities have confirmed that there are links to a "overseas" terrorist group in this case.
