Here we have a vivid illustration of just how fanatic and committed our enemies in the global Jihadist insurgency can be.

This incident also speaks to the need for a terrorist registry in America modeled after the successful sex offender registry.

A jihadi named Fazliddin Kurbanov serving a 25-year prison sentence for a terrorist plot, tried to murder the warden of the federal prison in which he has been incarcerated.

The warden was severely wounded but, fortunately, is expected to make a full recovery.

Kurbanov was previously sentenced to 25 years in prison by a federal judge in Idaho for conspiracy to provide material support for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and and for procuring bomb-making materials to execute a terrorist attack on American soil.

The silver lining in the latest unfortunate event is that, when he is convicted of attempted murder, Kurbanov will be sentenced to another 15 years in prison to be served consecutively. That likely means that Kurbanov will die in prison, which is what should have happened in the first place.

But let’s take a moment to examine the original sentence. Think about this for a moment:

A man in post-9/11 America was tried and convicted of conspiracy to support a designated foreign terrorist organization AND for procuring bomb-making materials to carry out a terrorist attack here in the U.S.

One would think that for such crimes, Kurbanov would be sentenced to life behind bars, but, what most Americans don’t realize, sentences for terrorism offenses are actually ridiculously short. So, Kurbanov was sentenced to a quarter-century in prison. He was 33 years old at the time of sentencing.

So, IF Kurbanov served the entire 25 years, he would be 58 years old upon release.

If, after 25 years in prison, Kurbanov had mellowed, perhaps he would not be a danger to society.

But would he have mellowed? What if he had been able to associate with other like-minded individuals while in prison, other jihadis? What if he had continued to study the doctrine that led to his involvement in jihad in the first place? At 58 years old, he certainly could pose a threat to society.

Now, here’s the other aspect of this that few talk about…few federal prisoners ever serve their full sentence. Fazliddin Kurbanov would likely have been released from prison well before he turned 58…had he not tried to slit the throat of a federal prison warden.

Ask yourself a question: if a man like Fazliddin Kurbanov, upon release from prison, moved into your county, wouldn’t you like your local sheriff to know about it?

Here are the latest details of Fazliddin Kurbanov’s case:
