American Citizen Found Guilty Of Helping Al-Qaida Launch Suicide Attack Against US Base


American citizen Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh was found guilty Friday of helping al-Qaida plan a car attack on a U.S. military base in Afghanistan.



Jurors found Farekh guilty of supporting a foreign terrorist organization, conspiring to murder Americans and using a weapon of mass destruction, Reuters reports.

“Today, an American al-Qaeda member was brought to justice in a U.S. courtroom,” said Bridget Rohde, the acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

Two vehicles full of bombs hit Forward Operating Base Chapman in Afghanistan Jan. 19, 2009, and the ensuing explosion killed one Afghan and injured several others. But the larger bombs failed to detonate because the second car crashed as a result of the explosion from the first car, leaving Americans totally unscathed. Farekh’s fingerprints were found on the bomb that never exploded.

  1. Build a hanging post at the Mosque he attended, and hang him ’til he’s Jerky . Sell the Jerky at International Market , Pork- free for next Desert Pilgrimage !!!

  2. He’s had his trial.
    He’s been found guilty by a jury (NOT of his “peers”).
    When is the execution? Needs to be quick. I volunteer.

  3. From the looks of that grubby looking scum,forcing him into a bathtub may just be the ultimate punishment.

  4. Treason and materially supporting enemies of the US in a time of war is no longer a crime punishable by death.

    Whether you site Bergdahl, Manning or the hundreds of known terrorists set free from Guantanamo, all are free thanks to the policies of Obama.

    Government and the Judicial system has assumed and abdicated their responsibilities that rightfully falls under Military jurisdiction.

    Prosecution of Treason must be returned to the US Military to fairly and swiftly carry out the most severe penalties that are demanded for the act of treason against the US and its citizens.


    That term WAS exclusively for nuclear and biological weapons of a MASS scale, capable of wiping out 100,000 or more people.

    Now, if you wrap 3 sparklers together you are charged with the same crime.

    Let’s put the ridiculous propaganda away, he did NOT have WMDs. It was a bomb, that is serious enough.

  6. @Cato: You say, “Prosecution of Treason must be returned to the US Military”.

    I’m not a lawyer, but I don’t think prosecution of treason was ever taken away from the U.S. Military. However, since Al was not a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, I don’t believe the U.S. military would have jurisdiction here.

    In any event, only 9 people have ever been convicted of treason against the U.S., the last in 1952 (death sentence later commuted). Of these, only 3 were actually executed, one being a Southerner who tore down a U.S. flag during the Civil War). [source: Wikipedia]

    Moral of the story: If you want a traitor executed, do it in the field instead of handing them over for trial.

    As the old saying goes, it’s easier to get forgiveness than permission.


  7. Agreed that a trial is in order, but we should be actively reinstating the death penalty for being a traitor. Justice and deterrence will be served by stretching this A-hole’s neck.
