FBI Says 2 New York Women Allied with ISIS, Plotted to Bomb Police Funerals

April 03, 2015  | 

Homegrown Islamist terrorists Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, were self-proclaimed “bad bitches” hoping to “make history” with a massive blast and body count from a police funeral or some other major public event, authorities charged Thursday.

“It’s war,” Velentzas, who declared herself an Islamic State citizen, said in a tape-recorded August conversation. “It’s f---ing war.”

Velentzas, in another of many chats recorded by an undercover investigator, declared that killing a cop was actually easier than grocery shopping, the New York Daily News reports.

“Sometimes one has to wait in line to buy food,” she was quoted as coolly telling the undercover last December after the executions of NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

The Ramos funeral, which drew 20,000 law enforcement mourners, sparked speculation between the two accused women and the undercover about bombing a subsequent funeral.

Pals Velentzas and Siddiqui — both American citizens who had ties to Al Qaeda — researched the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing in their quest for American carnage, authorities charged.

Law enforcement descended on their Queens homes in twin raids beginning at 5 a.m., grabbing the two women as cries of “FBI! FBI!” echoed through the darkness to end a two-year probe.

You never know where these radical murderers are going to show up next. I thought the profiling class that we had when I was in the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy to be a little boring. Boy was I wrong because I now see how helpful it can be!
