2 Ala. men arrested on federal terrorism charges
Two Alabama men who federal investigators say wanted to wage violent jihad overseas have been arrested in Georgia on terrorism charges, and one has close ties to another man previously identified as an Islamic terror leader, authorities said Tuesday.

Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair and Randy "Rasheed" Wilson, both 25 and from Mobile, were named in terrorism charges filed Monday, according to Kenyen R. Brown, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama.

Prosecutors said Abukhdair was arrested at a bus terminal in Augusta, Ga., and Wilson was stopped in Atlanta while attempting to board a flight for the first leg of a trip to Morocco.

A sworn statement from an FBI agent said Wilson is a close friend and former roommate of Alabama native Omar Hammami, who was recently added to the list of the FBI's most-wanted terror suspects.

"The law enforcement actions of today should send a clear warning to those who would consider engaging in violent jihad, either at home or abroad, that their future is bleak: they may end up in a U.S. prison cell or a casualty on a foreign battlefield," Brown said in a statement.

Court records did not indicate whether Abukhdair or Wilson has an attorney.

#6  i dunno about the Alabama part; play NASCAR word association games with them and see what they respond with when you ask them "who is Awesome Bill from Dawsonville." if'n the answer is anything other than Bill Elliott, then "...get a rope."

#4  One of these things is not like the other......

I could maybe buy the Alabama part if it was Abul, his brother Omar, and his other brother Omar.

#2  Check the progressive blogs today and you'll see them trying out the memes that Journolist will use in the MSM tomorrow, and the Feds the day after...

#1  Ah yes, Mohammad & Rasheed to good ole redneck names. Wouldn't be surprised to see the feds try and tie them to the Tea Party.
