Boston Muslim accused of plot to kill shoppers, troops

AMEHANNATIME_P1Tarek Mehanna, who grew up just outside Boston, has been in hot water with the FBI for a few years now.

First he lied to the FBI about the whereabouts of a terrorist suspect who is now serving 10 years in federal prison.

Now he finds himself in even worse trouble because he and a couple of pals evidently sought terrorist training in Pakistan but couldn’t seem to find a crew that would accept them.

What the article below does not mention is the fact that Jihadist groups overseas are becoming wary of American Jihadi candidates because they fear infiltration. (The first article linked below makes it appear that Mehanna and company were simply incompetent in their quest to join the Jihad. This is misleading, bad journalism.)

Of course, if you listen to the local Muslim community in Boston, they would have you believe that Mehanna was just an all-American kid and would never get involved in anything having to do with Jihad.

Then how did he end up involved with a guy who will be sitting in federal prison on a terrorist-related conviction in the first place?

Or does this qualify as “all-American” activity according to Mehanna’s friends, family and associates???

Here is a more incisive article on this case:

Former Gitmo detainee, “Yo Mo” al Shihri, killed in a shootout

If one were to believe what many on the Left in America say, the inmates at the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba are nothing but innocent pilgrims and goat herders who all ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But an inconvenient truth of the prison population that has gone through that highly effective prison facility is the fact that no fewer than 61 former residents have been captured or killed on the field of battle waging Jihad after their release. And we should emphasize that those 61 are the ones we know about.

The latest is a distinguished gentleman named Yousef Mohammed al Shihri. This innocent shepherd (we’ll call him “Yo Mo” for short) was no doubt improperly incarcerated by the evil American empire after being snatched from his benevolent wanderings in beautiful, picturesque Afghanistan several years ago.

“Yo Mo” won his freedom from Gitmo with the capable help of Saudi authorities and went on, evidently, to pursue his true calling as a transgender wanderer in the deserts of Yemen, after having gone through the Sauds’ highly successful Jihadi rehab program. (By highly successful, we mean successful at sending terrorists back to their chosen profession.)

In Yemen, Yo Mo, dressed as a woman, was gunned down by authorities, no doubt without any justification whatsoever.

If a Jihadi gets wacked while wearing women’s clothes, when he gets to paradise, are his 72 virgins male or female?

These are the vital questions which we need answers to!

The great folks at The Long War Journal have the real story.

Terrorists sentenced in US for conspiring to attack Americans overseas

Jim Kouri has just posted a new report about a cell of Jihadists in Ohio who have now been sentenced to prison for plotting to attack Americans overseas.

To anyone who has been paying any attention at all, there has been a disturbing increase in the number of Jihadist plots within our borders. This Ohio plot is actually old news and doesn’t fall into the category of the recently uncovered plots, such as those in Illinois, Texas, Massachusetts, and elsewhere.

In the case of this Ohio cell, the article linked below exposes some real weaknesses in the “law enforcement” approach to fighting Jihad.

The sentences for these plots seem ridiculously lenient. I am not familiar with how federal sentences work, but if there is even a chance that these enemies of America could be released early based on good behavior or some other mechanism, this is not justice and shows just how stupid the idea of using law enforcement to fight Jihad is. If you plot to commit Jihadist terrorism against the US, you should either be sentenced to death or you should spend the rest of your life making little rocks out of big rocks…

Speaking of death sentences, why in the world weren’t the US citizens involved in this plot not tried and convicted of TREASON?

What should worry us most about this is the old saying attributed to an Irish Republican Army terrorist:

“We only have to get lucky once. You have to be lucky every time.”

How long before one of these Jihadist plots succeeds?

We all owe a huge debt of thanks to our intelligence and law enforcement agencies for holding the line up to this point.
