    Ahmad Khan Rahami’s Father Told Police in 2014 His Son Was a Terrorist, Officials Say

    Two years before Ahmad Khan Rahami went on a bombing rampage in New York and New Jersey, his father told the police that the son was a terrorist, prompting a review by federal agents, according to two senior law enforcement officials.

    Separately on Tuesday, another official said that when Mr. Rahami was captured during a shootout with the police, he was carrying a notebook that contained writings sympathetic to jihadist causes.

    In one section of the book, which was pierced by a bullethole and covered in blood, Mr. Rahami wrote of “killing the kuffar,” or unbeliever, according to the official, who agreed to speak about the investigation only on the condition of anonymity.
    -----
    The father made the statement about his son being a terrorist to New Jersey police in 2014, when Mr. Rahami was arrested after a domestic dispute and accused of stabbing his brother.

    The information was passed to the Joint Terrorism Task Force led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Newark. Officers opened what is known as an assessment, the most basic of F.B.I. investigations, and interviewed the father, who then recanted.

    An official, when asked about the inquiry, said the father made the comment out of anger at his son.

    It is not clear if officers interviewed Ahmad Rahami.

    On Tuesday morning, outside the family’s restaurant in Elizabeth, the father, Mohammad Rahami, told reporters, “I called the F.B.I. two years ago,” he said, shaking his fingers in the air.

    Asked if he specifically meant his son, Mr. Rahami stormed away. A short time later, he responded to a reporter who asked, “Do you think your son is a terrorist?”

    “No,” Mohammad Rahami said. “And the F.B.I., they know that.”

    Pressure Cooker Found in Bronx

    A pressure cooker was found under an overpass on East 134th St & Alexander Ave in the Bronx area of New York City, according to News 12 Bronx.

    The device was found at 5:35 p.m. local time and streets in the area were shut down.

    The device reportedly did not have any wires coming out of it or a cell phone attached, like ones used as bombs have in the past.

    The bomb squad is on scene and has determined that the device is safe.

    Ahmad Rahami Posted Radical Videos in 2010, Went to Syria: Sources

    Were Key Warning Signs Missed Before New York and New Jersey Bombings?
    The suspect in the New York and New Jersey bombings posted links to radical videos on social media as early as 2010, but his social media posts weren't vetted by authorities when he received U.S. citizenship in 2011, NBC News has learned.

    U.S. intelligence sources also believe Ahmad Rahami traveled to Syria in 2013 or 2014, in addition to visiting high-risk terror areas like Quetta, Pakistan, repeatedly.

    In fact, Rahami left a trail of clues that raise questions about whether he could and should have been detected by authorities — perhaps the latest example in a recent history of domestic terror plots littered with missed opportunities.

    Nope. Not a joke. They are EgyptAir pilots.

    But, yeah. Just tourists who needed a tiger print bag off the street.

    New York City bombing suspect communicating with authorities by nodding

    The hospitalized man accused of setting bombs in New York City and New Jersey has been communicating with authorities by nodding, CBS News has learned.

    Two law enforcement officials confirmed to CBS News that Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, nodded no when asked if anybody else was involved in the bombings that injured 31 people in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood last month. No one was injured in the New Jersey explosion.

    Rahami, an Afghan-born U.S. citizen, was shot between eight and 10 times when he was captured in northern New Jersey two days after he allegedly detonated a pipe bomb along the route of a Marine Corps charity race in the New Jersey shore town of Seaside Park and a pressure cooker bomb in New York City on Sept. 17.

    When asked if the bombing locations were chosen at random, Rahami nodded yes, the law enforcement officials told CBS News.
