FBI Discovers Islamic Jihad Compound in Alabama
The FBI has discovered an Islamic jihad compound in Macon County, Alabama, according to a Daily Caller report.
An FBI search warrant described the land, which looked like an “abandoned dump” with a “makeshift military-style obstacle course.” The terror training group was led by Siraj Wahhaj, who “allegedly trained children to commit school shootings in a similar terrorist breeding ground in New Mexico last year.”
Wahhaj and four others were indicted on terrorism, kidnapping and firearms violation charges.
The Daily Caller reports:
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.
