>> One man came to kill, to maim and to destroy.>> The would be suicide bomber who allegedely detonated a pipe bomb at New York's Port Authority, was charged Tuesday with five counts of federal crimes, including using a weapon of mass destruction.>> He also admitted that he had been inspired by ISIS to carry out his attack.

Saying that he had been radicalized online through ISIS propaganda, starting as far back as 2014.>> Bangladesh native Akayed Ullah burned himself and caused minor injuries to three others. When his homemade device exploded in an underground walkway between the Port Authority and the Times Square subway station during Monday morning's rush hour commute.
00:00:48
Police visited the Brooklyn residence where Ullah, a green card holder, lived with his mother, sister, and two brothers, finding metal pipes and screws consistent with his bomb's materials.>> Officers also found a passport there in Ullah's name, with handwriting that included one particularly chilling note, and I quote, all America die in your rage.

Undercover police, heavily armed officers and bomb sniffing dogs are among the security measures, but screening every passenger is an impossible task.
