The would-be bomber of the Federal Reserve Bank pleaded guilty Thursday to detonating what he thought was an 1,000-pound car car bomb.
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, admitted during a plea hearing in Brooklyn federal court to his destructive ambitions that undercover cops foiled in October.
"I had an intention to commit a violent, jihadist act," said Nafis, 21, reading from a piece of paper and speaking in a soft voice. "I no longer support violent jihad and I deeply and sincerely regret my actions."
Nafis pleaded guilty to attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.
If the would-be terrorist had gone to trial and been found guilty he would have received a life sentence. Now, he has the possibility of getting out of prison before he is 50. If released, he would be deported to Bangladesh.
Investigators said in court papers that he came to the U.S. bent on jihad and worked out the specifics of a plot when he arrived.
Investigators said Nafis contacted a government informant, who then went to federal authorities.
Quazi Mohammad Ahsanullah holds a picture of his son, accused bomb-plotter Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis. Quazi Ahsanullah has said his son was not planning an attack.
They said he selected his target, drove the van loaded with dummy explosives to the door of the bank and tried to set off the bomb from a hotel room using a cellphone he thought had been rigged as a detonator.
But it was all fake.
He also believed he had the blessing of Al-Qaeda and was acting on behalf of it, but he has no known ties to the terrorist group, according to federal officials.
During the investigation, he spoke of his admiration for Osama bin Laden, talked of writing an article about his plot for an Al-Qaeda-affiliated magazine and said he would be willing to be a martyr but preferred to go home to his family after carrying out the attack, authorities said.
And he also talked about wanting to kill President Obama and bomb the New York Stock Exchange, officials said. But family members in Dhaka said they did not believe he was capable of such actions.
