Arizona Muslim Pleads Guilty to Lone Terror Plots on DMV, USAF, Jewish Center

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

An 18-year-old Muslim man living in Arizona pleaded guilty to plotting some lone wolf terror attacks on various sites in the Tucson area, including a Department of Motor Vehicles building, a Jewish center, and a U.S. Air Force recruiting facility.

UPI reported Mahin Atif Khan admitted to charges of inciting or inducing terrorism, financing or managing terrorism and manufacturing, possessing or selling a prohibited weapon.

He faces up to 14 years in jail.

UPI has the story:

“Khan, 18, who the government said has pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh, was accused of writing e-mails to an alleged member of the Pakistan Taliban, looking for help to build explosives and plan their use.

“Rather than militants overseas, Khan was actually talking to FBI agents for several months while planning a “lone jihad attack,” telling the agents he’d been considering a Jewish Community Center and Air Force recruitment Center in Tucson and the Motor Vehicle Division office in Mesa as potential targets.

“The terrorism charges carry a sentence of at least five years, but no more than 10.25 years, and at least two more years will be added to Khan’s sentence for the weapons misconduct charge. After he is released from prison, Khan will have to surrender his passport and will be placed on probation limiting him to Maricopa and Pima counties in Arizona and restricting his access to the Internet.”

Well, that’s comforting. He’s due to be sentenced on November 4.

But as Robert Spencer writes in Jihad Watch:

“How many more like him are in the U.S.? No one knows, because to investigate that question properly would be ‘Islamophobic.’”
