JihadJane To Face Terrorism Charges

Yes, the War on Terrorism is real and still matters

A petite, blond-haired, blue-eyed high school dropout who allegedly used the nickname JihadJane was identified Tuesday as an alleged terrorist intent on recruiting others to her cause, as federal prosecutors unsealed criminal charges that could send her to prison for life.

Colleen Renee LaRose, 46, has been quietly held in U.S. custody since October on suspicions that she provided material support to terrorists and traveled to Sweden to launch an attack, according to federal officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case is continuing to unfold.

LaRose, who lived in suburban Philadelphia, allegedly recruited men and women in the United States, Europe and South Asia to “wage violent jihad,” according to an indictment issued in Pennsylvania. She fueled her interests on the Internet over the past few years and used Web sites such as YouTube to post increasingly agitated messages, the court papers said.

A few thoughts. First, this is the type of case that does belong in civilian court, as she is an American citizen. Second, this is, at first appearance, the exact type of case that should be tried as treason, and as a capital case, which doesn’t seem to be in the works. Third, our so-called by liberals/Bush haters “domestic surveillance” works

Across the ocean Tuesday, Irish police conducted morning raids in Cork and Waterford, arresting four men and three women who had been under electronic surveillance by U.S. and Swedish authorities. The seven were suspected of plotting with LaRose to attack a Swedish artist, Lars Vilks, whose 2007 drawing of the prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog enraged Muslims, according to Irish news accounts.

Fourth, how soon till the Lefties rally to her side?

She is being charged with “conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, making false statements to a government official and attempted identity theft.”

If there is one post you MUST read about this, it is the one at The Jawa Report, which has kept up with her comings and goings for quite some time, and would seemingly be the first to make the connection between JihadJane and the plot against Vilks.
