I have written extensively on the terror threat to the NYC subway system and have done my own surveillance on what possible vunerable locations still exist, the NYPD does a terrific job in keeping NYC safe. TSA Report ..Subway attack highly possible with al-Mubtakkar (see details below), a crude hydrogen cyanide dispersal device gas attack. “The Mubtakkar,” meaning “invention” in Arabic was planned to be used by al-Qaida operatives in a small easily concealed device to release hydrogen cyanide into multiple subway cars. Among the threats the NYPD cited: A reported plot by al-Qaida terrorists to kill thousands of New Yorkers by spreading cyanide gas in the subway.
The Al-Mubtakkar fuse can be activated remotely–as bombs are triggered by cell phones–breaking the seal, creating the gas, which is then released. Hydrogen cyanide gas is a blood agent, which means it poisons cells by preventing them from being able to utilize oxygen carried in the blood, not something you would want dispersed in an underground subway system.
Ali Saleh Kahlah al Marri — an admitted Al Qaeda operative in the United States who had planned a Hydrogen-Cyanide Gas Attack on the N.Y. Subway System — was released last week from a federal prison prior to completing his 15-year sentence because of “time served,” the Justice Department told Fox News on Tuesday. Al Marri had been in U.S. custody since 2001, he was not sent to prison until 2009, after reportedly being picked up on a routine traffic stop just weeks after the 9-11 terror attacks.
A seal between the two could be broken by a remote trigger, producing the gas for dispersal. The prototype confirmed their worst fears: "In the world of terrorist weaponry," writes Suskind, "this was the equivalent of splitting the atom. Obtain a few widely available chemicals, and you could construct it with a trip to Home Depot — and then kill everyone in the store." Easily constructed and concealed, the device ensured that mass casualties would be inevitable if it could be triggered in any enclosed public space. Ayman Zawahiri in January 2003 was informed of a plot to attack the New York City subway system using cyanide gas. Several mubtakkars were to be placed in subway cars and other strategic locations. This was not simply a proposal; the plot was well under way. In fact, zero hour was only 45 days away. But then, for reasons still debated by U.S. intelligence officials, Zawahiri called off the attack.
Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri also conducted online research of various cyanide compounds, including hydrogen cyanide, potassium cyanide, and sodium cyanide. He reviewed toxicity levels, locations where these items could be purchased, and specific pricing of the compounds (SUBWAY PLOT & POISON WATER SUPPLY PLOT). He also explored obtaining sulfuric acid, a well-known binary agent used in a hydrogen cyanide binary device to create cyanide gas. Al-Marri agrees that the government would prove at trial this is the method taught by al Qaeda for manufacturing cyanide gas. He also agrees that the government would prove at trial that an almanac recovered in his residence was bookmarked at pages showing dams, waterways and tunnels in the United States, consistent with al Qaeda attack planning regarding the use of cyanide gases.
Post 9/11 World – Terror Goes UNDER GROUND:April 25, 2013 – RT The New York City Police Department announced Wednesday that it will deploy, then track, what it calls “harmless” gases into the city’s subway system over three non-consecutive days this summer. The plan, to be enacted in July, will investigate New York’s readiness to handle a chemical terrorist attack by dispersing the colorless gas and tracing it as it flows through the city, according to Scientific American. The test is expected to cost $3.4 million and is scheduled to be carried out in all five boroughs and dozens of stations on 21 of the city’s 34 subway lines.
