Immediately following the terrorist attack in New York Monday, surveillance video of the attack was released. Not a single image from Vegas has yet to be released.
New York, NY — On Monday morning, a 27-year-old alleged terrorist by the name of Akayed Ullah walked into the underground tunnel between Times Square and the Port Authority Bus Terminal and detonated a crudely-made pipe bomb. Luckily no one but Ullah was seriously injured.
After the blast, which happened at 7:20 am during rush hour, the suspect was almost immediately identified and a profile of him released.
Ullah is from Bangladesh and had been living in Brooklyn. He arrived in the United States in February of 2011 and had a visa. He came in with his parents and 3-4 siblings and subsequently obtained a Green Card and became a permanent U.S. resident, according to CBS news.
“They’ve been bombing in my country and I wanted to do damage here,” law enforcement sources reportedly told the NY Post.
He told cops he was inspired by ISIS, but police don’t believe he had any direct contact with the group, sources said.
Currently, police are claiming Ullah is a lone wolf attacker and they are saying there is no reason to believe any other attacks are forthcoming.
“NYPD will be adjusting and adapting the way they always do. Right now, they don’t believe there’s any follow-up attack immediately planned, but there are still several weeks to go before Christmas, two weeks from today,” said Rep. Peter King.
During the press conference, New York’s governor took to the microphone to blame the internet for the attack.
“With the internet now, anyone can go on the internet and download garbage and vileness on how to put together an amateur-level explosive device,” said N.Y. Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Clearly missing the point and hinting at a possible agenda of internet censorship, Cuomo conveniently ignored the fact that people can also securely and easily send those files to one another via cheap satellite antennas, cell phones, dark web, or any other number of ways—without the evil internet.
Within minutes of the attack, surveillance footage from the tunnel was released which shows Ullah detonate the bomb. The footage from a Port Authority surveillance camera monitor shows commuters walking through a narrow hall on the way to the A, C and E trains moments before the blast, according to the NY Post.
“It’s the guy in the hoodie,” one off-camera voice can be heard saying, referring to the suspect as he enters the frame and the bomb goes off.
