The Dr. Emmett Brown Award for Giving Would-Be Terrorists a Shoddy Bomb Casing Filled With Used Pinball Machine Parts Goes To….

The FBI and the NYPD:

The FBI and NYPD busted a four-man homegrown terror cell Wednesday night that was plotting to blow up two Bronx synagogues while simultaneously shooting a plane out of the sky, sources told the Daily News.

The idea was to create a “fireball that would make the country gasp,” one law enforcement said.

Little did they know the plastic explosives packed into their car bombs and the plane-downing Stinger missile in their backseat were all phony – supplied by undercover agents posing as Pakistani militants linked to Al Qaeda.

Fortunately the would-be terrorists didn’t become suspicious of the “Acme” and “Ajax” labels on the boxes.

Way to go NYPD and FBI!
