U.S. imams arrested, accused of helping Pakistani Taliban

Two South Florida imams and a third family member were arrested Saturday on charges of providing support to the Pakistani Taliban, the Justice Department said.

Three others in Pakistan also were indicted on the same charges.

The four-count indictment alleges that all six defendents conspired to provide material support to a conspiracy to kill, injure and kidnap people abroad, and that they provided support to the Pakistani Taliban.

    One of the guys detained had a youtube video that was pretty intense about the illuminati.

    Just look up the word illuminati and it is the second video about the signs. And at the end it will say it was produced by imhar khan. Same name as one of the detained.

    @popeye: If they were smarter, they wouldn't be criminals. Not much of a future in terrorism.

    Not as a suicide bomber, anyway.
    Zero chance of advancement.

    I say if these Imams (like any Muslim) should be chased out of our country, by force if nessessary. These RODENTS are here for no other reason but to cause harm and kill Americans. All they do is preach their hate in their Mosque's and in their book of Koran!!! Why this government does'nt stop all immigration into our country I'll never know, but ask most American citizens and you'll get the same answer..."CLOSE OUR BORDERS TO ALL FOREIGNORS" at least until we figure who's here leagally and who's not!! Most of all the leech's from Mexico...
