Lots of interesting items on the interwebs today. I hadn’t heard of Mr. Mostafa before, and I’ll be willing to wager most non-LEO TAH’ers haven’t, either. Time to fix that.

Meet Jehad Serwan Mostafa

By Hollie McKay

Late last year, the U.S. government upped the ante on Jehad Serwan Mostafa – a 38-year-old American citizen and former San Diego resident – branding him the most wanted American terrorist in the world.

“Mostafa is believed to be the highest-ranking United States citizen fighting overseas for a terrorist organization,” U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer stated. “Al-Shabab’s reign of terror threatens U.S. national security, our international allies, and innocent civilians.”

According to a recently unsealed federal indictment, the U.S. citizen – who has for years been on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terror list – has been charged with additional crimes related to his alleged involvement with Al Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabab in East Africa.

Mostafa was first indicted in 2010, having fled the U.S. in December 2005. The superseding indictment expands the scope of the previous charges. It claims that Mostafa, at some point between March 2008 to at least February 2017, “conspired to provide material support, including himself as personnel to terrorists.”

Now operating under “Ahmed Gurey,” “Ahmed,” “Abu Anwar al-Muhajir” and “Abu Abdullah al-Muhajir,” the FBI stated that Mostafa is a leader in Al-Shabab’ s “explosives department,” and has taken on critical roles across the media and soldier training wings. He has been implicated in improving the effectiveness of improvised explosive devices for purposes of attacking U.S. interests and soldier bases in the area, government officials have stated.

But sources told Fox News his entanglement runs far deeper.

    Traitor and, probably, registered (D)unce voter.

    Another reason to export each and everyone of the members of the “Religion of Pieces.” Their stated purpose is to kill the Infidel. Most of you that have served since oh what, the 70s, know that they simply do not have any respect for other religions or for human life. Maybe this POS will get introduced to “Hellfire” soon.

    When you can’t tell the sheep from the goats, that makes them all goats.

    To paraphrase Reza Aslan from CNN: “Honest question. Have you seen a more shootable face than this guy’s?”
