Another white guy upset about healthcare reform

After the attempted Times Square attack, that was the mayor of New York City's initial description of the terror threat. Still not so much.

Two men were convicted Monday of plotting explosions at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Russell Defreitas and Abdul Kadir were accused of conspiring to blow up JFK's jet-fuel supply tanks and pipeline in 2007.

. . . DeFreitas is a United States citizen and former JFK cargo worker. Kadir is a citizen of Guyana who has served as a member of parliament there.

A third defendant, Abdul Nur, pleaded guilty in June to providing material support to terrorists. Nur is also from Guyana.

Prosecutors have said the men tapped into an international network of Muslim extremists to develop the plot and start work toward carrying it out.
