On April 23, 1993, militant Islamist Sheikh Omar “Abdel-Rahman’s translator had approached [reinstated FBI informant Emad] Salem in the Abu Bakr Mosque in Brooklyn. He said he was planning a series of bombings… [The plan] called for the simultaneous bombing of four major New York City landmarks: The Lincoln and Holland tunnels, the United Nations and 26 Federal Plaza, the location of the New York offices of the FBI.”
