    VA. Man Arrested For Plotting DC Attacks.

    Keep in mind folks, the fact that he is a Muslim is not to be mentioned. If you do, you're a racist, anti-Muslim bigot.

    VA. Man Arrested For Plotting DC Attacks.
    October 27, 2010 - 1:33 PM | by: Mike Levine

    A Virginia man has been arrested for allegedly trying to help Al Qaeda plan multiple bombings around the nation's capital, according to U.S. officials.

    Farooque Ahmed, 34, of Ashburn, Va., was arrested today by the FBI and charged with providing material support to terrorists and collecting information for a terrorist attack.

    “It’s chilling that a man from Ashburn is accused of casing rail stations with the goal of killing as many Metro riders as possible through simultaneous bomb attacks,” said Neil MacBride, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “Today’s arrest highlights ... our ability to find those seeking to harm U.S. citizens and neutralize them before they can act."

    According to an indictment filed in U.S. Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, between April 2010 and Oct. 25, Ahmed repeatedly met with individuals he thought were affiliated with Al Qaeda to discuss "jihad."

    On May 15, in a hotel room in Sterling, Va., Ahmed told one individual that he might be ready to travel overseas to conduct jihad, but only after he completed the Hajj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in November, according to the indictment.

    In addition, he agreed to watch and photograph Arlington Cemetery Metrorail station and a hotel in Washington, D.C., in order to obtain information about their security and busiest periods.

    Mentioning his name and Hajj isn't enough for you?

    I think the fact that he's with al Qaeda is a dead giveaway of his religion.

    Never mind the bigger picture that at least none of the attacks they were planning were carried out...

    No need to get all caught up in the minor details.

    Glad he was caught. Not so glad about the having a straw man in the initial post.

    I'm conducting a study, I'm going around threads to see if every topic eventually melts down into a conservative/republican vs liberal/democrat debate instead of staying on the topic. This one is one of the few that have not...so far. Let's see how long that last.

    This is obviously false and a complete fabrication. Any northern virginianer could tell you that based on one simple and unquestionable fact.

    There's no non-white people in Ashburn unless they play for the Redskins.

    In all seriousness, glad they got this guy. Weird thinking of it literally in my back yard.
