Feds Claim to Bust N.Y. Airport Terror Plot

Is this another case of wannabe terrorists being made out to be al Qaeda as a way to frighten Americans:
Authorities have taken into custody a former cargo worker at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City who they say recruited an FBI informant to help blow up jet fuel tanks and pipelines at the airport, law enforcement officials told ABC News.

The former cargo worker, originally from Guyana, had been under surveillance and allegedly met with a radical group in Trinidad, sources say.

There have been a series of arrests of so-called homegrown terror plots broken up in where the plots were only in the planning stages:
The plot, which never got past the planning stages, did not involve airplanes or passenger terminals, according to the two officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the arrests had not yet been announced.

FOX reported that the plot was not "technically feasible."
