Zarqawi Associate Charged with Lying to FBI

Friday, June 25, 2004

By Catherine Herridge and Anna Stolley

A Lebanese national with ties to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (search), the most wanted terrorist in Iraq, was picked up in Minnesota and charged Friday in a New York court with lying to the FBI about his ties to terrorists, Fox News has learned.

According to a federal complaint obtained by Fox, Mohamad Kamal Elzahabi (search), attended jihad training camps in Afghanistan in 1988 and ‘89, where he first met Zarqawi — who is believed to be directing the current attacks against U.S. and coalition troops in Iraq.

Officials say that more serious charges, such as material support to terrorism, may follow.

The court papers allege that Elzahabi admitted to personally knowing two of Al Qaeda's (search) most prominent leaders, Abu Zubaida and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (search), described as the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks.

Investigators with the FBI's joint terrorism task force say Elzahabi ran a shipping business from New York City and lied about knowing whether his company sent portable field radios and walkie talkies to fighters in Afghanistan.

Elzahabi, 41, has been in federal custody as a material witness since May. The charges he faced Friday are part of an international terrorism investigation.

So the FBI must have tracked his shipments. Hmmmmm.

The complaint said Elzahabi told authorities he is a Lebanese national who came to the United States in 1984 on a student visa and obtained permanent legal status after paying a woman in Houston to marry him.

He told authorities that he traveled to Afghanistan around 1988, after attending a religious conference in the Midwest, and attended a Jihad military camp and fought in Afghanistan in 1988 and 1989, the complaint said.

"The Niceties" be DAMNNED!!--SQUEEZE THIS B+STARD--HARD!!

There are several Thousand American Souls that He & His OWE US FOR!!

He SHOULD BE "QUESTIONED" DOWN TO the "Molecular Level," & THEN DESTROYED--UTTERLY.

We Put "Overly Aggresive 'Pit-Bulls' Down, Don't We??"

My DOGS have more Honor than these Psychotic "Muslims" have shown.

Until the Pathetic "Followers of Islam" develop the Courage to Repudiate the Psychopaths who "Plunder, Kill, Rape, & Maim" in Their Name, ALL of "ISLAM" is TAINTED BY the behavior of it's "Believers!"

CAIR is PATHETIC & Fraudulent!

"ISLAM" REALLY LOOKS BAD just now!!

"Fry 'em after putting panties on his head."

Oh, and don't forget to fry your IslamoRAT in pure pork lard. They come out golden brown and crispy and nothing says perdition like defilement from the unclean flesh. Yummy!
