Goose Creek Suspect Admits to Terror Video

Do we have to keep calling these guys suspects? From the Post & Courier:

One of the men facing federal charges for illegally transporting bomb materials through Goose Creek last month told authorities he filmed a how-to video on making bomb detonators to help Arabic countries defend against American troops and other "infidels."

Ahmed Mohamed told authorities that he made the Internet video to "assist those persons in Arabic countries to defend themselves against the infidels invading their countries" and that he "considered American troops, and those military forces fighting with the American military, to be invaders of Arab countries."

The admission is one of several new details about the Aug. 4 arrest contained in a recently released federal search warrant application. The 12-minute video was discovered on a laptop computer belonging to Mohamed. Other files on the computer indicated that the video had been posted to the video-sharing web site YouTube under keywords such as "martyrdooms" and "suiciders."

Funny, we didn't start invading Arab countries until after they started bombing us. It's the old victim mentality "you made us into bad people". And what's up with the "martyrdooms" and "suiciders" categories on YouTube? You'd think someone in charge over at the new owners Google might think "maybe this isn't a very family friendly thing that we'd want on on our site". You think?
