The Terrorists Among Us

Nope, no need for the Patriot Act; Kofi Annan will protect us:

The indictment accuses Ahmed and Sadequee, who were arrested respectively in March and April of this year, of supporting “violent jihad” and charged them on four counts of conspiring to provide or attempting to provide “material support” to terrorists and the Pakistani terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Tayyiba.

According to prosecutors, Ahmed and Sadequee were collaborating with international terrorists. In April 2005, a month after their trip to Toronto, they took a day trip in Ahmed’s pick-up truck to Washington, D.C. Instead of taking typical tourist photos, they allegedly made a casing video of the U.S. Capitol, the World Bank’s headquarters, a fuel storage facility, and the George Washington Masonic Temple in Alexandria, Va. A copy of this video was reportedly found among the possessions of Younis Tsouli, an alleged terrorist arrested in London last October.

The indictment also contends that Ahmed traveled to his native Pakistan for parts of July and August of 2005 — not for a standard study-abroad program, but rather in what has been described as an attempt to be indoctrinated in radical Islam at a madrassa and study the art of jihad at a terrorist training camp. In August 2005, Sadequee departed for Bangladesh, ostensibly to get married, but also to propagate jihad. Before he left the U.S., he was questioned by FBI agents at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York about his trip to Canada, according to an FBI affidavit. (Sadequee was also charged in a New York U.S. District Court for making false statements during this interview.) A map of Washington, D.C. was in his possession, as well as two CD-ROMs, one of hard-core bootlegged pornography and the other an encrypted CD whose contents are unknown. Sadequee was extradited from Bangladesh this spring.


Yet another example of "poor, oppressed" terrorists who are neither poor nor oppressed.

When will the LWM change its profile to reflect reality?
