While details remain scarce, the FBI executed a search warrant on the compound, which was reportedly helmed by Siraj Wahhaj, who was arrested last year in a similar raid, after having been accused of training children to engage in terrorism.
“Just because you’re in a small town or a small state, does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security,” said a former FBI agent.
From The Daily Caller:
The FBI has uncovered a homegrown, jihadist compound in the small Alabama town of Macon County.
The FBI‘s search warrant described the property as a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” in a story first reported by Sinclair Broadcast Group. The land where the group gathered reportedly looked like an “abandoned dump,” and was led by Siraj Wahhaj, who allegedly trained children to commit school shootings in a similar terrorist breeding ground in New Mexico last year.
Wahhaj and four other alleged Islamic extremists were indicted on terrorism, kidnapping, and firearm violation charges earlier this year
In an interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group, former FBI agent Tim Fuhrman warned of the increasing threats of domestic terror that “exists in every region of the United States and affects all walks of life.”
“Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security,” Fuhrman said.
