Rusty at Jawa has exclusive information on the suspected terrorists arrested in North Carolina this week. It is amazing how much information jihadists are willing to post on their social networking sites.
More on the banality of terror. You should read it for the context in understanding the federal indictments against Ziyad Yaghi, Mohammad Omar Aly Hussain, and six others.
At first glance Yaghi's Facebook account seemed so ordinary. Hence why all his friends are shocked, neighbors all describe the ringleader's family as nice people, and the "banality of evil" reference. But on a deeper analysis of "hidden" information, it becomes clear that Yaghi had jihadi aspirations for some time.
I think there's a joke worthy of Jeff Foxworthy here. If the very first thing you write on your Facebook page is ..
Asalamualaikum, if your a mulsim (sic, "Muslim) welcome but if ur a munafiq (arabic: hypcrite) im a kill you
... then you might be a jihadi.
Here is a link to his earlier post about the stuff found on Ziyad Yaghi's Facebook page.
