Default Man Charged With Plotting ISIS-Inspired Attack in New York

Canadia, eh?

Good thing he can't just... walk across the border.

Federal authorities arrested a Canadian man this summer accused of an ISIS-inspired plot to attack music concerts, landmarks and crowded subways in New York City, according to officials familiar with the case.

The news comes days after a lone gunman with no link to any terror group opened fire on a concert crowd in Las Vegas, killing 58 people. Terrorists have killed concertgoers in England and France.

Investigators said the man's goal was to injure as many people as possible, but the suspect was arrested before obtaining any weapons. They described the plot as inspired by the ISIS terror group but said it was more aspirational than operational. It wasn't immediately clear which venues may have been targeted.

Officials said the suspect spoke to a second man about wanting to strike Times Square and crowded New York City subways during rush hour. Times Square saw a failed car bomb attempt by self-proclaimed terrorist Faisal Shahzad in 2010 and the 2009 Zazi plot was set to be a series of backpack bombings on the subways.
