SNIPPET: "The charge centers around a one-way ticket that authorities allege Abdel Hameed Shehadeh purchased from Queens, New York, to Islamabad, Pakistan.
Shehadeh originally told investigators that the purpose of his trip was to visit an Islamic university and attend a friend's engagement party. But he later admitted to FBI agents in Hawaii that he bought the ticket in order to join a fighting group such as the Taliban, according to a criminal complaint unsealed in New York Monday."

No wedding so to speak for this guy — just a friend’s “engagement party.”
Well, anyway, thanks to a special emailer for pointing to this article.
What kind of name is Abdel Hameed Shehadeh? Amish?
So, basically, when the Taliban claims a Hellfire missile hit a “wedding party” we now know what that means ... a bunch of people just like this fine gentleman. We had our suspicions, to be sure, but thanks, sir, now we know for sure.

SNIPPET: “According to the complaint, Shehadeh, a US citizen, lived on Staten Island, New York, in early 2008 when he devised a plan to travel to Pakistan to join the Taliban or a similar fighting group.”
SNIPPET: “Under questioning by FBI agents and New York police detectives, Shehadeh initially said he traveled to Pakistan to visit an Islamic university and attend a friends wedding, the release said.”
SNIPPET: “The complaint also alleged Shehadeh attempted to recruit another person to join him immediately after the two discussed a sermon by radical US-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
Shehadeh later attempted to enlist in the US Army at the Times Square recruiting station in New York City, but his application was denied when it was discovered he concealed his trip to Pakistan, the complaint said.
Shehadeh claimed he wanted to enlist for career opportunities and benefits, but the complaint alleged his true motive was to deploy to Iraq, where he intended to desert and fight against the US military alongside Iraqi insurgent forces.”
"...Shehadeh initially said he traveled to Pakistan to visit an Islamic university and attend a friends wedding, the release said."

SNIPPET: “The complaint goes on to allege that he created multiple web sites dedicated to spreading violent Jihadist ideology.
The complaint says that he moved from New York to Maui in April of 2009, and then moved to Oahu.
He was arrested in Honolulu last Friday and charged with making false statements in a matter involving international terrorism.”
The FBI is under the Do(in)J. Someone didn’t get Holder’s memo: The feds are only interested in arresting whitey. Well, yeah, that openly only with respect to those minor things called voting rights, but the implication is clear...
