Texas Men Charged with Terror Support

June 19, 2014  | 

Two Austin area residents were charged in separate complaints with providing material support for terrorism.

One complaint accuses Michael Todd Wolfe (a.k.a "Faruq") of planning to travel to the Middle East "to provide his services to radical groups engaged in armed conflict in Syria."

In a meeting with government informants, Wolfe "indicated that he had learned that al Qaeda in Syria was training brothers from other countries (foreign fighters) and then sending the fighters back from Syria to their home countries to conduct terror attacks." Wolfe indicated that Allah put jihad in front of people to determine who the real men were."

A separate complaint alleges that Rahatul Ashikim Khan, 23, tried to recruit people in Internet chat rooms to wage violent jihad overseas.

Khan, a Bangladesh native naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 2002, was a full-time student at the University of Texas in Austin. He became active in a chat room in early 2011, calling himself a "jihadi." Another participant turned out to be a government informant.

Both Khan and Wolfe are in federal custody and face up to 15 years in prison if convicted, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports.

Throw these p.o.s.'s in prison and throw away the key. Let them know what it feels like to not have the freedoms they were use to, before all this jihad bullshit.

These people have not been tried and convicted yet SS.
Looks like we have a new mod, wonder who it could be?
Wonder how long before this post is deleted.
