ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A disgruntled, former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist promised to build 40 nuclear weapons for Venezuela in 10 years and design a bomb targeted for New York City in exchange for "money and power," according to secret FBI recordings released Wednesday.

In the recordings, Pedro Leonardo Mascheroni tells an agent posing as a Venezuelan official that the bombs would prevent the United States from invading the oil-rich nation and brags to his wife that the passing of secrets would make him wealthy.

"I'm going to be the boss with money and power," the naturalized U.S. citizen from Argentina is heard saying. "I'm not an American anymore. This is it."

Mascheroni said his New York bomb wouldn't kill anyone but would disable the city's electrical system and help Venezuela become a nuclear superpower. It was not known how realistic his New York bombing idea was.

But he suggested that once Venezuela obtained a bomb, the country should explode it "to let the world know what we've got," according to the recordings....

More good work from the FBI creating their own entrapment terrorist plot (that wouldn't actually kill anyone) so they can solve it themselves again to make themselves look good and keep the public afraid, gg.

Hard to say whether the FBI Or the CIA are worse at this point, but either way **** all spooks.

"I was basically selling used cars," Mascheroni said during a long tirade in federal court that had to be interrupted by U.S. District Judge William P. Johnson. "What I was selling was completely science fiction."


Well, that explains why his nuke sounded more like an EMP.

Sounds like a rejected James Bond script.

It's just like in the Newburgh sting, this guy tried to sell the FBI a bomb that he knew wouldn't work, just like those guys, who planted a bomb they knowingly didn't activate, yet they'll still all get 10-20 because America has no justice, after all the effort the spooks put into this phony plot how could they accept not getting a conviction even if they have to pressure the courts to do it?

It's not good to read into the intentions of others when you don't even have the opportunity to sit down and talk with them.
