more details[edit]

  • I added more details to the article on Najibullah Zazi.
  • I started an article on the imam, Ahmad Wais Afzali. If all Afzali did was tell Zazi -- "hey the police were asking about you" -- is that a crime? The police weren't paying him. If they wantd him to not tell the suspects maybe they should have?
  • I am going to add some more details to this article. Geo Swan (talk) 04:53, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

new name[edit]

I don't like the current name, "2009 U.S. Al Qaeda group":

  • Are there other 2009 plots now? The year isn't over yet;
  • The al Qaeda link is only an allegation.

So, what are the alternatives? Najibullah Zazi alleged sleeper cell? Or New York sleeper cell investigation (2009)?

I hadn't realized that Najibullah Zazi was suspected of leading a plot to explode bomb(s) on or about the anniversary of 9-11. Perhaps a better title might be something like Suspected 9-11 anniversary bombing of 2009, or suspected conspiracy to bomb New York city on 9-11 2009? Geo Swan (talk) 05:47, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

inconsistent time interval[edit]

According to American security officials, Zazi's last trip had lasted five months, from mid-August to mid-July.

Do months work differently in America or something? -- (talk) 04:11, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Months work the same. Sometimes brains don't work, and make typographical errors. That passage should have said "mid-January". Did you consider checking the source document? Geo Swan (talk) 05:50, 30 September 2009 (UTC)


I renamed based on all the news reports that the Feds are charging the group had a London wing planning to carry out an attack there. No specific UK target has been given as of this writing said United Kingdom. Caliinbg it a plot instead of a group is consisting with how other terrorist plots are named. If a specific UK target is named we could rename this again. Edkollin (talk) 18:43, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

Formal request has been received to merge the articles Ahmad Wais Afzali and Mohammed Wali Zazi into 2009 New York City Subway and United Kingdom plot; dated: December 2017. Proposer's Rationale: Neither man has any claims of notability other their assistance in the attack plot and the articles have barely any information beyond that. Discuss here.
