Thank You, Lord Jesus...

...for hearing our prayers.

NEW YORK — A U.S.-educated Pakistani woman was carrying handwritten notes referring to a "mass casualty attack" and listing the Empire State Building and other New York landmarks when she was detained in Afghanistan, prosecutors said Tuesday.
In an attempted-murder indictment unsealed in federal court in Manhattan, prosecutors for the first time publicly named some of the landmarks. The others: the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, the Brooklyn Bridge and Plum Island, a disease research complex in Long Island Sound.
Aafia Siddiqui had notes "that referred to a 'mass casualty attack"' and to "the construction of dirty bombs, chemical and biological weapons and other explosives," the indictment said. "These notes also discussed the mortality rates associated with certain of these weapons and explosives."
