Using Facebook to find fellow terrorists: A cautionary tale

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis plead guilty today to terrorism charges stemming from his attempt to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank here in NY.  Nafis’ attempt, if completed, could have caused serious damage.  Fortunately for us, Nasfis realized early on that he could not complete his task alone and so he turned to Facebook to recruit fellow terrorists.  Seems one of the Facebook friends he tried to recruit was a government informant who contacted officials.  Another example of why friending “faux friends” isn’t necessarily a good idea.
