Questions are being raised over New York City’s handling of an alleged terror plot. On Sunday night, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York City Police Department Commissioner Ray Kelly announced a 27-year-old Dominican-born man named Jose Pimentel had been charged on terrorism charges. But it has now to come to light that federal authorities, including the FBI, declined to join the local investigation, saying Pimentel did not appear predisposed or capable of carrying out an attack. It also appears federal authorities may have concluded that Pimentel had been entrapped by an undercover informant.
