Onta Williams, also known as Hamza, allegedly participated in a plot to bomb two synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down planes flying from a New York Air National Guard base. The alleged ring-leader was James Cromitie. Two other accomplices were David Williams, and Laguerre Payen. The FBI arrested them after they planted car bombs outside their targets. They also obtained from an undercover agent what they allegedly thought was a functional Stinger missile. Defense lawyers seem prepared to plead entrapment with the large sums of money allegedly being obtained to finance their escape.
