Younes Tsouli arrived in London in 2001 with his father, a diplomat from Morocco. He studied IT at a small college in Central London. With few friends, he soon immersed himself in the world of the internet. Online images of the war in Iraq radicalised him...

From 2003 he joined web forums and built a reputation for publishing material such as manuals on hacking.

Anyone else see a problem with this timeline?

#4 You mean like, he was radicalized before he joined the web forums in 2003, when the war started?

Probably just the journalist trying to lay it all on George Bush.

#5 Seems to me it shouldn't be too tough to put these kinds of folks in jail until the end of time. Why not make him accomplice to every individual act of aiding and abetting terrorism individually and then having him serve the sentences serially, instead of lumping them all together? To me it's the same as him going on a killing spree, in which case he should be given time or death for each individual murder/attempted murder/assault/battery/kidnapping/whatever, rather than just a single charge of "mass murder".

#6 “He was thoroughly detained,” one detective recalls.
As opposed to what, partially detained? "We've got one of arms and his nose..."
This whole article is way overblown, IMHO. He was a jihadi web site operator (roaches of the net) and he's now in jug. End of story. 007 my ass.

#7 Maybe he was radicalized by online images from 1991. Or maybe the journo is just trying to make up a human interest narrative.

I don't know anybody like that.

#9 At first, officers were not sure that they had the right person: the long-haired young man in jogging shorts bore little resemblance to the short-haired man in the photo they had been given.
Stereotyping Muslims when the terrorist playbooks say lie,cheat, deceive anyway you can to fit in when in the land of Crusaders and infidels is what they want us to believe. They can shave their beards, smoke, drink, gamble, and call in the hookers before a suicide mission as many of the 9/11 hijackers did. The same lame reasoning is what they are using to say white AQ is a myth, as they will not get westerners to give up their sinful habits to convert to Islam. Regardless, the extensive unraveling of jihadi networks with just one good catch is great news!

#14 A fantacist and a script-kiddie.

The police did completely the wrong thing, they should have

a) monitored his traffic.
b) bugged his P.C.
c) arrested him in secret.
d) rolled up his contacts by runing the sites a few more days.

Hard to track down an IP address my f''ing arse it is.

#15 He has the same unhappy mammas boy look as Adam Pearlman (the American Taliban) (in the photo at link)

#16 this photo link

Does he not look like the same kind of pudgy mamma boy goof ball as Adam Pearlman? I wonder how tough he will be in prison?
