On June 3, 2007, New York Times writers Cara Buckley and William Rashbaum headlined, "4 Men Accused of Plot to Blow Up Kennedy Airport Terminals and Fuel Lines," saying:
"Four men," including Russell Defreitas, "a onetime airport cargo handler and a former member of the Parliament of Guyana, were charged yesterday...." One was arrested in Brooklyn and two others were detained in Trinidad, (while) the fourth man was still at large."
On June 2, Defreitas, a naturalized US citizen, was arraigned in federal court. New York assistant FBI field office director Mark Mershon said all four men had "fundamentalist Islamic beliefs of a violent nature," suggesting they were guilty of being Muslims in America at the wrong time.
On August 2, 2010, Times writer AG Sulzberger headlined, "2 Men Convicted in Kennedy Airport Plot," saying:
Ending a monthlong trial, "(a) federal jury found two Guyanese men (Russell Defreitas and Abdul Kadir) guilty....of conspiring to attack Kennedy International Airport (by) set(ting) off a series of explosions along a pipeline that cuts through New York City."
