Man Named As Part Of North Carolina Terror Plot Arrested

A man arrested in Kosovo is accused of helping terrorists abroad as part of a plot that originated in North Carolina.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Raleigh says 29-year-old Bajram Asllani of Mitrovica, Kosova, was arrested Thursday. Federal and state authorities say he's charged with providing material support to terrorists and conspiring to murder, kidnap, maim and injure people abroad.

Authorities say Asllani was named in an April criminal complaint that was unsealed Thursday accusing him of being part of a conspiracy that has resulted in the indictment of eight people. They include Daniel Patrick Boyd and two of his sons, all U.S. citizens living in North Carolina.

The U.S. plans to seek Asllani's extradition from Kosovo to North Carolina, where he faces a maximum of 40 years in prison if he is convicted.

    Anonymous, please spare us the right-wing talking points (i.e. lies). Name one thing Obama has gotten passed that has not been paid for. See, what you rabid wingnuts don't seem to understand is the rest of the world is living in a state called "reality." Obama has NOT raised your taxes ONE PENNY. And to you, OSOC, why are you bringing up the justification for war? I said nothing about justification, I said Bush spent billions of dollars on the wars without any clue of how we were going to pay for them. And yes, Clinton left office with a budget surplus, with NO money debited from Social Security. But feel free to keep on lying, freeloader, I'll be around to call you on your BS.

    Tell me that you read the news: "In late May, the administration accepted Mexico’s offer of two skimmers and 13,779 feet of boom; a Dutch offer of three sets of Koseq sweeping arms, which attach to the sides of ships and gather oil; and eight skimming systems offered by Norway."

    : @OSOC, reality bro, did you park your car yet and sell you house? Last I looked, they didn't have the nozzle for mine. I suggest you go buy a new solar car or wind powered one...I mean, they do have them....right? My point is clear, we have a nation that uses oil. You use it, I use it. I am not willing to park my car and walk to work many miles a day, are you? Reality says we drill off and on US soil. Otherwise it goes to Soros's company in Brazil. You know, that pesky billionaire that owns part of the oil company and who Obama sent 2 billion dollars to? You are up to speed on the news?, right? So Obama ignored the oil spill and didn't accept help from the Dutch ships that could have removed it as fast as it was spewing. Well, if you are proud of that, then those oil covered birds should bother you in your sleep. He ignored it. Whatromana, nitwit? Shouldn't be cleaning birds in La for what your liberal president did?

    I'd like your response to Sarah Palin's statement: "And while we're at it, let's expedite the regulatory and permitting and legal processes for on- and offshore drilling." —Speaking at the Tea Party convention on Feb. 26, 2010, about six weeks before the BP oil spill

    That's right. Keep on letting anybody and everyone "COME ON DOWN" to the good ole USA. Soon we will have every Muslim nation and the rest of the world against the US. But the good news is, that they will not have far to travel to kill us. Aren't we just the sweetest things for letting them live here while they arange our demise?????
