Ohio Man Charged With Terrorism

I really am surprised this made the news

WASHINGTON (CNN) — A 43-year-old U.S. citizen was charged Wednesday with providing material support to al Qaeda and plotting to set off bombs in Europe and the United States, according to a federal indictment unsealed in Columbus, Ohio.

Christopher Paul did not enter a plea in his first court appearance Wednesday, and his lawyer, Donald Worley, would not comment on the charges when contacted by CNN.

The plotting took place between April 1999 and January 2000, according to the three-count indictment.

Prosecutors say that beginning in 1989, Paul supported terrorists by his actions, and he provided training and equipment to be used in attacks on people overseas.

Most of the ties the indictment lays out relating to Paul's alleged association with al Qaeda date back to the early to middle 1990s. Prosecutors allege Paul traveled to Afghanistan and trained at an al Qaeda camp in late 1990 or early 1991, and later in 1991 joined the terror group.

Lots, lots more in the article. It would probably be unfair to blame Clinton, since most of the activities happened on his watch. I won't go there.

What it really shows is the pervasiveness and long term strategy of Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

As Bluto at The Jawa Report writes: It appears likely that Paul was detected using domestic surveillance programs that have come under political assault from the Left.
