Ohio Court Indicts Jihad Plotters

It's Shocking how under reported these stories are, how many Americans are totaly ignorant of stories like this that pop up every month or so. Training compounds in Oregon, terror cells in Sacramento and Lackawanna. All remarkably silent. Meanwhile, we get wall to wall coverage of Neil Entwhistle and Dick Cheney.

A grand jury in Ohio indicted three men for conspiring to kill people and for planning attacks against U.S. forces overseas, court documents showed on Tuesday.

The indictment said the three men -- Mohammad Zaki Amawi, Marwan Othman el-Hindi and Wassim Mazloum -- were part of a conspiracy that began in November 2004 to kill people outside the United States, including U.S. troops in Iraq.

"It was part of the conspiracy that one or more conspirators would recruit others to train for violent jihad against the United States and its allies in Iraq, and elsewhere, and would propose potential training sites for use in providing ongoing firearms, hand-to-hand combat, explosives and other paramilitary training to prospective recruits," the indictment said.

No big deal, put it on page a17 with the "wierd news".
