When she was arrested in Afghanistan last month, Aafia Siddique allegedly had in her possession maps of New York, a list of potential targets that included the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the subway system and the animal disease center on Plum Island, detailed chemical, biological and radiological weapon information that has been seen only in a handful of terrorist cases, as well as a thumb drive packed with emails, ABC News has learned.
MIT-educated neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui's outlandish terror schemes included plans to get Carter by poisoning the 39th president's water supply, the sources told ABC News. It wasn't clear how she supposedly schemed to kill Bush.
Officials believe arrested neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui is a danger to the U.S.
That haul of information has led multiple government sources to describe Siddique, a 36 year-old MIT graduate, as a potential "treasure trove" of information on terrorist supporters, sympathizers or 'sleepers' in the United States and overseas.
