Mehanna's attorneys portrayed him as an aspiring scholar of Islam who traveled to Yemen to look for religious schools, not to get terrorist training. They said his translation and distribution of controversial publications was free speech protected by the First Amendment. Prosecutors focused on hundreds of online chats on Mehanna's computer in which they said he and his friends talked about their desire to participate in jihad, or holy war.
Tarek Mehanna found guilty on terror-related charges; prosecutors say he conspired to receive training at a terrorist camp.
Terror Suspect Found Guilty Of Conspiring Against US
Prosecutors: Man Conspired To Help Al-Qaida
BOSTON -- A Massachusetts man was convicted Tuesday of conspiring to help al-Qaida and plotting to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Tarek Mehanna, 24, of Sudbury, faced four terror-related charges and three charges of lying to authorities. A federal jury found him guilty on all counts after deliberating for about 10 hours. Prosecutors said Mehanna and two friends conspired to travel to Yemen so they could receive training at a terrorism camp and eventually go on to Iraq to fight and kill U.S. soldiers there. When the men were unable to find such a training camp, Mehanna returned home and began to see himself as part of the al-Qaida "media wing," translating materials promoting violent jihad and distributing them over the Internet, prosecutors said. Mehanna, who was born in the U.S. and raised in the Boston suburbs, will be sentenced April 12 and could be sent to prison for the rest of his life. His mother, Souad Mehanna, sobbed after the verdict was read and was consoled by her younger son, Tamer. Mehanna's lawyers also wept. Mehanna's father, Ahmed, a professor at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, said he was stunned

I’m sure Obama will be apologizing to him and his family momentarily.
One down—thousands to go.
So a child of privilege, born into prosperity and enjoying the fruits of a wealthy family, conspires against the very nation that brought him all good things.
And now he’ll have taxpayer-funded living, three hots and a cot for the rest of his life, probably converting felons in prison to his made-up religion.
Just waiting for the other shoe to drop...AG Holder stepping in to pervert the appeal process and get his boy released.
According to Nappy at the DHS, Muzzies are just understood, while Mr. Whitey McCrackerhonkey is the real terrorist!
No, he'll be quietly pardoned in the last hours before Obama leaves office.
They want to come to America, but they don’t want to live their lives as Americans, they want to live their lives as Muslims. I hate Muslim countries, I wouldn’t be caught dead living in one. Muslim’s hate Americans, and our way of life....but love to live here.
The Islamic way of life and American way of life are incompatible. Anyone that says differently should really look at the way true Muslim countries treat their women, criminals, and religious minorities. Or better yet, go live in Saudi Arabia for a year or two.
Any Muslim immigrant should be required to sacrifice their rights when coming to America, they should not be allowed to buy weapons, they should not be allowed to vote, they should not be allowed to drive, they should all have to wear clothing designating them as Muslim, they should also be subject to surveillance. I mean, it’s only what they do to their women. They should also under no circumstance be allowed to practice Sharia Law in their “communities”. Come to America, adhere to our way of life.
Ooo, I forgot about that.
I like how you think.

Where else would he find the necessary subjects he needed for his education...
Jihadist Jumpstart 101
Kill the Infidel 101
Behead the Unbelievers 101
Suicide Bombing 101
There is no higher level class in SB...
The schools only have the one year certificate...
The graduation is a real blow out...
This will continue until some ballsy politicians say enough is enough and stop with the political correctness and act according to FACT and what we know to be true about these Muslim turds, instead of acting on the hope that everyone can live happily in a land of rainbows and unicorns that poo diamonds. Stop giving these turds the benefit of the doubt, when the next terrorist attack happens, I will have a hard time telling a LOT of people I know, told you so. This isn’t a matter of IF, it’s a matter of time, unless our leaders grow some balls, and stop worrying about offending every other dark skinned minority out there.
It’s about time to take our country back, the next time we are hit, there should be no tolerance to the media downplaying the Muslim involvement, someone better say enough is enough. We tried appeasing these turds, and look what they did, I will never forget 9/11, but the rest of the country has, we have a MUSLIM President for fuck’s sake. I for one don’t want to wake up tomorrow to see that a bunch of people were killed by a “terrorist”. Terrorist is such a broad term, next time it happens, you better scream from the streets that the term is “Muslim”, the WTC attacks were not perpetrated by “terrorists” but “Muslims”.
Im sure Obama will be apologizing to him and his family momentarily.
