One of the men suspected of helping the plotters of a terror attack on Fort Dix would jokingly refer to Osama bin Laden as "his Uncle Benny," a co-worker told WPVI, the ABC News affiliate in Philadelphia. "He used to make jokes about how the U.S. government could not find his Uncle Benny," Bob Watts, who worked at a Shop Rite bakery with Agron Abdullahu, told WPVI’s Dann Cuellar. Watts also told WPVI that Abdullahu would bring in recipes for making bombs that he had downloaded from the Internet, and that he would experiment with homemade explosives that he used to remove tree trunks.

"We used to joke around that I’ll see him on America’s Most Wanted some day." Abdullahu, 24, was born in the former Yugoslavia and was living in the United States legally. He is charged only with aiding and abetting the other suspects’ illegal possession of weapons, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison.
