FBI Releases Image of US Citizen (Jude Kenan Mohammad) Possibly Connected To 9/11 10yr Anniversary Plot

This is believed to be one of the men counter terrorism chiefs say are plotting a terrorist attack in America on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11.

An image of American-born 22-year-old Jude Kenan Mohammad has been posted on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list.

He has been linked to what officials have called a credible but unconfirmed al-Qaeda threat to set off a car bomb on bridges or tunnels in New York City or Washington.

The Wall Street Journal reported Mohammad is among three al-Qaeda leaders that investigators believe pose a particular threat because they have lived in the U.S.

Should that mission prove impossible, the attackers have been told to simply cause as much destruction as they can.

Mohammad, who was born in Florida, dropped out of North Carolina's Fuquay-Varina High School in 2006 and left the U.S. two years later to visit Pakistan, his father's homeland.

A federal grand jury in North Carolina indicted him and seven other men in 2009 on charges that they conspired to carry out terrorist activities around the world. Two of the men have pleaded guilty, and the trial of four others is set for September 19 in New Bern.

Federal authorities have never arrested Mohammad in the case, saying that they believe he has been in Pakistan since the indictment was issued.[More..]

UPDATE: I am still searching for the WSJ article, if anyone sees it please email me. Thanks.

Also, Rusty posted about him in 7/2009: Confirmed: Eighth Traitor on the Lam in Pakistan (UPDATED: Traitor ID'd)

UPDATE II: ABC news has more on this. I am trying to confirm this from a domestic source.
Officials may have the name of one of the suspected bomb plotters after a 24-hour intelligence manhunt, U.S. officials tell ABC News.
Stay tuned

UPDATE by Rusty: Jude Kenan Mohammad was part of a larger ring of would be jihadis in North Carolina led by Daniel Boyd (aka, Saifullah). Of the eight indicted in the terror ring, only Mohammad was missing.

Mohammad had turned up in Pakistan where he was arrested. But our allies in Pakistan let him go.

Some allies, eh?
