NY Feds Free Admitted Terrorist After His Cooperation

By Allan Lengel

The feds have released an admitted terrorist after serving 4 1/2 years because of his cooperation, the New York NBC local affiliate reported.

The station reports that U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara confirmed that Mohammed Junaid Babar is free, but declined to say more.  A federal judge officially released him in December.

The station reported that the Queens man flew to Pakistan after Sept. 11, 2001  to join al Qaida.

In 2002, Babar said in an interview:”I will kill every American that I see in Afghanistan and while I’m in Pakistan if I see them in Pakistan I will kill every American soldier I see in Pakistan.”

After his arrest seven years ago, after returning from Pakistan, the station reported that Babar helped the FBI and British authorities in terrorist cases.

The station reported that assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon McGuire during a hearing in December called Babar’s cooperation “exceptional.”

“The defendant has testified previously at four different trials involving numerous terrorism defendants, three trials in the UK and one in Canada,” McGuire said.
