Najibullah Zazi, the former Queens (current Denver) resident accused of plotting to bomb New York, will be in Brooklyn's Eastern District Court today. The 24-year-old will face arraignment on the charge of conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction. It's believed he and other associates were plotting to bomb NYC mass transit, possibly on September 11.

The Daily News reports that security will be "sky-high" at the courthouse: "A bomb-sniffing dog will give the courthouse a check prior to the high-profile proceeding, and a squad of uniformed federal protective police officers will beef up the U.S. marshals' regular security detail." Zazi, whose early September trip to NYC set off numerous raids on Queens homes, initially denied any wrongdoing, but later admitted to having talks with Al Qaeda operatives while in Pakistan. And apparently bomb-making instructions were found on his laptop while he also bought large quantities of beauty supplies that can be used in bombs (acetone, hydrogen peroxide).

The feds also believe that three New York residents traveled to Colorado to help Zazi buy the beauty products.
