I guess we should be glad that he chose not to blow up Vegas in the cause of jihad and instead was going to join his murderous brothers in Syria.
!8 years old -- he must have been moved by the Hamas-CAIR #MyJihad ads that ran on Chicago buses.
"FBI: Ill. man planned to join Syrian extremists" The Associated Press, April 20, 2013
The FBI has arrested an 18-year-old suburban Chicago man who U.S. authorities say was planning join an al-Qaida-affiliated group operating in Syria.
The FBI says Abdella Ahmad Tounisi (ab-DUH'-lah AH'-med too-NEE'-see), of Aurora, Ill., was arrested Friday night as he tried to board a flight from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to Turkey.
Tounisi, a U.S. citizen, is charged with one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
According to the criminal complaint, Tounisi carried out research online about Jabhat al-Nusrah, or Nursa Front. Nusra Front is the most effective rebel faction fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime. The group is affiliated with al-Qaida in Iraq.
The FBI says a bureau employee posing as a recruiter for the group exchanged emails with the suspect.
