War In Afghanistan/Iraq Probable Cause Of Recent Upswing Of Americans Joining the Jihad

WASHINGTON — The arrest in Yemen of a New Jersey man accused of joining Al Qaeda is the latest in an alarming string of cases involving radicalized American Muslims, a trend some experts link to the duration of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Yemeni authorities said this week that the American, Sharif Mobley, 26, who had worked for six years as a laborer at nuclear plants in New Jersey, had been arrested last week in Sana, the Yemeni capital, in a sweep of militants tied to the Yemeni branch of Al Qaeda and the Somali movement Al Shabab.
Leftist/terrorist propagandist talking points. If we weren't in Iraq & Afghanistan the radicalization would still happen, the terrorists hate us.

More on Mobley from Jawa's Yemen expert Jane Novak whom, btw, is none too
pleased this dude was from Jersey.
