A federal judge denied bail for four men accused of plotting to bomb Bronx synagogues and to shoot down military planes at a base in Newburgh, NY in May 2009. Last week Judge Colleen McMahon delayed the case indefinitely because of issues with the prosecution's case and said she'd listen to bail applications. However, yesterday she decided against allowing bail "because, she ruled, there was no assurance they would return for trial if freed." However, she also said in her ruling, "The government’s case may not be as ironclad as it appeared in the hours and days immediately after the defendants were arrested." The men's defense lawyers claim they were entrapped by an overzealous government informant.
