Lead FBI agent returns to stand in 'Newburgh Four' trial

Posted: Updated:

? The lead FBI agent took the stand again yesterday in the trial against four men who are accused of plotting to blow up two Bronx synagogues and shoot down military airplanes at Stewart Air Base.

Earlier in the week, the agent showed the jury three bombs and a stinger missile that the suspects were allegedly planning to use in the plot. The defendants allegedly believed the weapons were coming from a radical Islamic group based in Pakistan.

Neighbors of where the suspects allegedly practiced with fake bombs told News 12 they never noticed anything peculiar in the area and for the most part, they've always thought the house where they practiced was empty.

The defense is claiming entrapment, saying the plot was set up by the feds.
