SNIPPET: "WASHINGTON A US man has been charged after he compiled a hit list of 15 people he believed had harmed Muslim civilians and deserved to die, court documents showed Wednesday.
Paul Rockwood and his wife Nadia were charged with lying to federal investigators about the compilation and content of the list, which Nadia Rockwood delivered to an unnamed individual in April at her husband's request."
SNIPPET: "According to plea agreement documents obtained by AFP Wednesday, Paul Rockwood converted to Islam around late 2001 and soon "became a strict adherent to the violent jihad-promoting ideology of cleric Anwar al-Awlaki."
SNIPPET: "Rockwood began researching explosive devices, and by late 2009 was discussing "committing acts of domestic terrorism, including... the use of mail bombs and the possibility of killing targets by gunshot to the head."
By early 2010, Rockwood "formalized" a list of some 15 specific targets, which may have included US soldiers. The list has not been released.
Nadia Rockwood was aware of her husband's radicalization, the documents said.
Both husband and wife subsequently lied to investigators about the content of the list, which was obtained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Joint Terrorism Task Force."

These people are this country’s enemies. And Americans should never forget that fact. They are the equivalent of spies and saboteurs.
Hmmm. Wonder if my name is on the list.
Sheesh. The guy is an average white guy weather technician who works for the US government in a place called King Salmon, Alaska. And then he becomes a Muslim (why?), along with his probably Russian-descended British wife and they turn into homicidal maniacs. Gads, you’ve got to hand it to Mohammed...he’s been an evil death machine for 1400 years.
I keep trying to get on their lists.....who made it?

SNIPPET: “His wife, who is five months pregnant, would get five years probation in the United Kingdom, her country of origin.”
SNIPPET: “Prosecutors alleged that Paul Rockwood, also known as “Bilal,” converted to Islam about a decade ago and began studying the teachings of American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who has professed hatred for the United States and supports acts of terrorism.”

Treasury Designates Anwar Al-Aulaqi,
Key Leader of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula
Treasury Targets al-Qa’ida Leader with Ties to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab
WASHINGTON The U.S. Department of the Treasury today designated Anwar al-Aulaqi, a key leader for al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a Yemen-based terrorist group. Aulaqi was designated pursuant to Executive Order 13224 for supporting acts of terrorism and for acting for or on behalf of AQAP. Since its inception in January 2009, AQAP has claimed responsibility for numerous terrorist attacks against Saudi, Korean, Yemeni and U.S. targets. Executive Order 13224 freezes any assets Aulaqi has under U.S. jurisdiction and prohibits U.S. persons from engaging in any transactions with him.
“Anwar al-Aulaqi has proven that he is extraordinarily dangerous, committed to carrying out deadly attacks on Americans and others worldwide,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Stuart Levey. “He has involved himself in every aspect of the supply chain of terrorism — fundraising for terrorist groups, recruiting and training operatives, and planning and ordering attacks on innocents.”
Aulaqi has pledged an oath of loyalty to AQAP emir, Nasir al-Wahishi, and plays a major role in setting the strategic direction for AQAP. Aulaqi has also recruited individuals to join AQAP, facilitated training at camps in Yemen in support of acts of terrorism, and helped focus AQAP’s attention on planning attacks on U.S. interests.
Since late 2009, Aulaqi has taken on an increasingly operational role in the group, including preparing Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who attempted to detonate an explosive device aboard a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, for his operation. In November 2009, while in Yemen, Abdulmutallab swore allegiance to the emir of AQAP and shortly thereafter received instructions from Aulaqi to detonate an explosive device aboard a U.S. airplane over U.S. airspace. After receiving this direction from Aulaqi, Abdulmutallab obtained the explosive device he used in the attempted Christmas Day attack.
Aulaqi was imprisoned in Yemen in 2006 on charges of kidnapping for ransom and being involved in an al-Qa’ida plot to kidnap a U.S. official but was released from jail in December 2007 and subsequently went into hiding in Yemen.
“Aulaqi has sought to encourage his supporters to provide money for terrorist causes. Those who provide material support to Aulaqi or AQAP violate sanctions and expose themselves to serious consequences,” continued Levey.
Today’s action supports the international effort to degrade AQAP’s capabilities to execute violent attacks and to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat its financial and support networks. The U.S. Government will continue to work with allies to identify and take action against persons acting for or on behalf of, or providing financial and other prohibited support to, Aulaqi and AQAP.

SNIPPET: “Paul Rockwood of King Salmon, Alaska and Zachary Adam Chesser of Fairfax, Virginia, could not have been more differentthey lived on opposite sides of the United States and were of different generations, but they shared a common threadthey had both been radicalized by Anwar al-Awlaki. And now they are in the custody of federal authorities for ties to international terrorism.”

Apparently you would know if your name was on the list.
According to one of the articles I read; the individuals named were contacted.
Anyway, the global jihad is just that global —24/7 and that’s probably the more important thing to understand.
Smiling at you... don’t try.
They list whatever irritates them that day...kind of like toddlers with diaper rash.
Mohammed has provided more warped, psychopathic minds a readymade identity and stance against an “unjust world”, as anyone since the early Communists, up to and through Joe Stalin.
