From The New York Daily News:
Girlfriends of accused Bronx wanna-be terrorists defend their menMy man's no terrorist!
The girlfriends of two of the accused Bronx bomb plotters said Saturday their beaus are sweet, sensitive and devoted men who were taken advantage of by an overzealous informant.
"He has three leatherbound books of poetry, where he writes beautiful books about growing up without a father. He loves kids.
"There's no way that he's the man the government is making him out to be."
"This is entrapment," Baynes, 44, said. "They come and hit a brother who is down and out, and tell him they'll give him the world. Maqsood is no different than a pimp or drug dealer sitting on 42nd St."
Baynes said the informant, identified as Shahed Hussain, began stalking Cromitie, 44, even after she told him her boyfriend moved away.
"Maqsood would keep ringing our doorbell, and James would hide behind the sofa," Baynes said.
"I know something wasn't right with Maqsood from the beginning. He would call and say, 'I got lots of money. Anything you need I can give you, sister.'"
A law enforcement source said the informant was not authorized to pay anyone, and even told Cromitie that only those "pure" recruits who did it from their heart could be involved.
"It's all a lie, and the government knows deep down inside that these four men are not terrorists," Baynes said. "We're going to stand together as a family and watch God move mountains."
