If This Is Monday, It Must Be Jihadi Time


Is it just me or is there a pattern emerging involving a certain religion and terrorism?

New Jersey Men Arraigned On Terror Charges

Shortly after two New Jersey men were arraigned Monday on terror-related charges in Newark, N.J., Paul J. Fishman paused briefly on the steps of the U.S. District Courthouse in Newark. The top federal prosecutor in the state conceded that once again they had been lucky, this time with a pair of bumblers who allegedly pledged for jihad in Somalia but were being shadowed for years by FBI agents.

Indeed, it marked the third time in six months that terrorists were tripped up by their own ineptness.

But, Fishman said, “sophistication is not necessarily a measure of danger.” And, he warned, “we would be remiss if we didn’t pay attention to anyone who has the intention of do what these folks are alleged to have done.”

Mohamed Mahmood Alessa, 20, and 24-year-old Carlos Almonte, also known as Omar, were arrested Saturday night at JFK Airport in New York, reportedly hoping to join an extremist group in Somalia linked to the terror network Al Qaeda.

But they never had a chance. For three and a half years FBI agents followed their tiny cell in the New Jersey suburbs, sending an undercover operative in who even at one point won their approval to search their computer. It turned up documents promoting Osama bin Laden and violent jihad. And still, the FBI said, the young men continued to boast and train and arm themselves for war.
