    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The FBI on Wednesday arrested a Bangladeshi man in a sting operation on charges he attempted to blow up the New York Federal Reserve Bank with what he believed was a 1,000-pound (450-kg) bomb, federal authorities said.

    Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, faces charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al Qaeda, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a statement. If convicted, he faces life in prison.

    The FBI said the public was not in danger because the explosives provided to Nafis were never in working condition and the suspect was closely monitored by the undercover agent - highlighting a script law enforcement has employed several times this year in similar cases, including one in Washington and another in Ohio.

    White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama had been briefed about the arrest.

    "Attempting to destroy a landmark building and kill or maim untold numbers of innocent bystanders is about as serious as the imagination can conjure," said Mary Galligan, FBI acting assistant director-in-charge. "The defendant faces appropriately severe consequences."

    This is more about entrapment to create the impression that law enforcement is watching actively than anything else.

    This may be a case of FBI entrapment but I believe that the FBI got to him before any real damage could be done. Had the FBI not intervene or got there too late, he could have gotten real explosives and there would be a disaster on our hands.

    ... what do they get when they kill innocent people?
