NYC officials have just announced that a lone wolf al-Qaida sympathizer, who allegedly plotted to bomb police and post offices in New York City was arrested yesterday.
Law enforcement officials say Jose Pimentel wanted to change his name to "Osama Hussein" after Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Officials are making this announcement to apparently justify the spying on private citizens. FBI was not at this news conference.
Officials say they have been monitoring this guy for at least a couple of years.
