FBI Breaks Up Homegrown Islamic Terror Camp in Alabama Owned by Terrorist Siraj Wahhaj and his Supporters
A homegrown Islamic terrorist training camp was discovered in Alabama recently.
The property belongs to terrorist Siraj Wahhaj who was arrested at a camp in New Mexico.
Wahhaj was training children at the dump for terror attacks.
At first glance, it looks like an abandoned dump.
But this plot of land in Macon County, Alabama is described in an FBI search warrant as a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” belonging to a small group of terrorists led by Siraj Wahhaj who owned the property up a long dirt road but just a few miles from downtown Tuskegee.
The property, similar to another compound in New Mexico the group is now linked to where federal prosecutors say Wahhaj and four other suspects were training children to carry out deadly terror attacks on American soil.
FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity told lawmakers on Capitol Hill there are 850 open domestic terrorism investigations, with 40% racially motivated violent extremism.
Muslim Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was arrested in the summer of 2018 at a compound in New Mexico.
Wahhaj was training children to commit mass shootings at US schools.
Siraj ibn Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
