US 'video terrorist' found guilty



Sadequee was born in Virginia and has family in the Atlanta area


A US court has found a man guilty of aiding terrorist groups by video-taping Washington landmarks and sending the tapes abroad.
Prosecutors said Ehsanul Islam Sadequee went to Bangladesh to meet terrorist cells and tried to help a Pakistani group linked to terror attacks.
At his trial in Atlanta, the 23-year-old denied any involvement in terrorist activity.
Sadequee, who was born and raised in the US, faces up to 60 years in jail.
At the trial - at which Sadequee represented himself - he acknowledged that he had spent time discussing jihad in online forums, but said it was empty talk.
"We were immature young guys who had imaginations running wild," he told jurors, the AP news agency reported. "But I was not then, and am not now, a terrorist."
Terror ties
Prosecutors said he and a friend - Syed Haris Ahmed, who was convicted in June on similar charges - drove around Washington and filmed 62 clips of various sites including the US Capitol, a fuel depot and a Masonic temple.
They said he then sent at least two video clips disguised as "jimmy's 13th birthday party" and "volleyball contest" to an overseas contact.
US officials also established that Sadequee had communicated with Mirsad Bektasevic, a Balkan-born Swede convicted in 2007 of plotting to blow up a European target to force the pullout of foreign troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
But Sadequee's family said the case was an example of over-zealous prosecution in the wake of the 11 September attacks.
"Even though [US President Barack] Obama has communicated there's going to be a shift, it hasn't really gone down to the general understanding of the community and social attitudes," his sister, Sonali Sadequee told AP.
Sentencing is set for 15 October.

Sadequee was video taping Washington landmarks and handing them over to Pakistani terrorists. But We Americans are too exclusively focused on the Arabs. If we don't focus on Pakistan which is the worldwide hub of Islamic terror were going to get our asses bombed again. Remember they tryed to blow up a bunch of airliners going from London to the U.S over the Atlantic a couple of years ago. Luckily the Brits stopped them in time. It would have been mass murder on an unimaginable scale.

thank god for the patriot act, reducing our freedom while protecting us from the mickey-mouse antics of make-believe terrorists. "as this case unfolds?" Try "as the case collapses."
