Attorney General Says Alleged Bomb Plot in N.Y. Was ‘Very Serious’ – Washington Post

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Tuesday that an alleged hydrogen peroxide bomb threat was “very serious” and “could have resulted in the loss of American lives.”

In a wide-ranging conversation with Justice Department reporters, Holder said the FBI continues to hunt for those who helped the bomb plot’s alleged mastermind, Denver shuttle bus driver Najibullah Zazi, and “it is our intention to bring all who were involved to justice.”

“We have a good sense of who these people were, and I can say the investigation is pretty far along and I think we’ve got a pretty good handle on who was involved,” he added.
