4 men are convicted in NY synagogue-bombing plot

Four men snared last year in an FBI sting were convict Monday of intrigues to blow up New York City synagogues and shoot down military planes with the help of a paid informant who persuaded them he was a terror operative.

The smart never put New Yorkers at risk. But the defendants "thought this was real — real bombs, real missiles — every step of the way," supporter U.S. Attorney David Raskin said during closing influence.

A jury in central court in Manhattan deliberated eight days before finding alleged mastermind James Cromitie and three co-defendants guilty of charges including conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and conspiracy to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles to kill U.S. officers and employees.
