    Default Redneck Jihad?

    Federal authorities have charged seven men in North Carolina with supporting terrorism and conspiracy to commit murder abroad, the Justice Department announced Monday.

    Officials said one of the men, identified as North Carolina resident and U.S. native Daniel Patrick Boyd, had traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan, where he trained in terrorist camps to carry out "violent jihad."

    Boyd, 39, who went by the name Saifullah, was charged along with two of his sons: Dylan Boyd, 22, also known as Mohammed, and Zakariya Boyd, 20.

    The four others also are residents of North Carolina, and all seven are accused of engaging in weapons training and military tactics in their home state, the Justice Department said.

    "We consider this significant. We've been watching them for some time, and we think they were dangerous," said a federal law enforcement official who asked not to be identified.

    The Boyd family and defendant Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan are identified as U.S.-born citizens. Defendant Hysen Sherifi is identified as a native of Kosovo who is a legal permanent resident of the United States, and Hiyad Yaghi and Anes Subasic are said to be naturalized U.S. citizens. Officials did not immediately identify their native countries.

    The indictment, made public by the Justice Department, says Daniel Boyd and others left the United States for Israel in June 2007 to "engage in violent jihad but ultimately returned to the United States after failing in their efforts."

    The defendants, with a substantial cache of weapons, had "practiced military tactics and use of weapons on private property in Caswell County, North Carolina, in June and July 2009," the indictment says.

    The documents make no reference to a direct threat to individuals or property in the United States.

    In a written statement, the Justice Department's top counterterrorism official, David Kris, said that Daniel Boyd, "a veteran of terrorist training camps" had conspired with others to recruit and help young men travel overseas in order to kill."

    The U.S. attorney in Raleigh, George E. B. Holding, said, "These charges hammer home the point that terrorists and their supporters are not confined to the remote regions of some far-away land, but can grow and fester right here at home."

    The defendants made an initial appearance in federal court in North Carolina. Officials said they are expected to return to court Thursday for detention hearings.

    I knew these people, my kids and their kids were friends. They lived in my neighborhood. We were really good friends with the family, hung out did BBq's, drink beers, you name it.
    Then they went really hardcore into Muslim religion and they distanced themselves from my family (which apparently was a good thing) and we just went our separate ways.
    I guess you never know who people are. I just feel creeped out about the whole situation. Two of the accused are his kids too, unbelievable.

    I assume they were always NC residents, if so, where/what/how does one convert from being a true blue, 4x4 truck driving, BBQ eating, Beer Swelling American to the situation they are in now????

    So these guys went to the middle east to train at a terrorist camp and came back home to North Carolina? Yep...the Carolinas are big time high priority targets for anyone wanting to wage jihad on the US.

    edit: actually, now that I think about it, the big Army base in Fayetteville I suppose would make a good target for such a thing...couple bombs or suicide bombers could take that place out.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    and here I thought this was going to be a story about a bunch of rednecks training here to go kill terrorists abroad. Too bad. These guys obviously suck at what they do. How do you fail at being a suicide bomber, especially if you are American. Nobody would suspect you of wearing a bomb vest under your cloths. Fucking losers.

    That's what I thought too. I thought it was going to be a bunch of freak baptist rednecks going on some jihad against those they deemed un-american or something.

    I thought this was about something else as well. At least the cops got them before they could do anything.

    I watched the report on the BBC about this and, as I was watching, something didn't seem to fit.

    .,...this...

    "We consider this significant. We've been watching them for some time, and we THINK THEY WERE DANGEROUS," said a federal law enforcement official who ASKED NOT TO BE IDENTIFIED"

    What?

    They are alleged to have been to "terrorist" training camps and failed at a non-specific attack attempt in Israel. They had a cache of weapons in NORTH CAROLINA.

    Sorry, but there is something too vague about this whole story.

    Put that together with recent developments - the Missouri domestic terrorist profiling release for example - and I really wonder about the reality of this situation.

    For those on this site who fear their second amendement (among other) rights are being eroded, it might be interesting to watch what happens next in this story.

    It's a nice neat set of characteristics: US family goes Muslim. Travels to bad countries (in 1989 I believe). And then, gulp, comes back to American soil in order to recruit, train or even carry out attacks on US soil.

    Too many generalisations. Very light on specifics though.

    I wonder ...........
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
