FBI Discovers Homegrown Islamic Terror Compound In Alabama
[DAILYCALLER] The FBI has uncovered a homegrown, jihadist compound in the small Alabama town of Macon County.
The FBI’s search warrant described the property as a "makeshift military-style obstacle course" in a story first reported by Sinclair Broadcast Group. The land where the group gathered reportedly looked like an "abandoned dump," and was led by Siraj Wahhaj,
who allegedly trained children to commit school shootings in a similar terrorist breeding ground in New Mexico last year.
|...also known as Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Sirraj Ibn Wahhaj. Siraj [Jr.] is the son of Siraj Wahhaj [Sr.], a Brooklyn imam whose mother welcomed him into the world as Jeffrey Kearse. Siraj Sr. was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a character witness in the trial of convicted terror plotter Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (“the blind sheikh”), and is connected to the several branches of the Moslem Brotherhood in America. He currently mentors pussy hat leader Linda Sarsour....|
Wahhaj and four other alleged Islamic Lions of Islam were indicted on terrorism, kidnapping, and firearm violation charges earlier this year.
In an interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group, former FBI agent Tim Fuhrman warned of the increasing threats of domestic terror that "exists in every region of the United States and affects all walks of life."
"Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security," Fuhrman said.
The FBI is currently involved in 850 domestic terrorism investigations, Assistant Director for Counterterrorism Michael McGarrity said earlier this week while speaking to the House Homeland Security Committee, according to CNN.
"The FBI assesses domestic turbans collectively pose a persistent and evolving threat of violence and economic harm to the United States," McGarrity said.
