    US Charges 6 Bosnian Immigrants With Aiding Terrorists

    The U.S. Department of Justice has accused six Bosnian immigrants of sending money and equipment to terrorists overseas, including fighters with the Islamic State group and al-Qaida in Iraq.

    In an indictment made public Friday, all the defendants were charged with conspiring to provide and actually providing material support and resources to terrorists. Two were also charged with conspiring to kill and maim people in a foreign country.

    Five of the accused have been arrested. The sixth is overseas.

    All six Bosnian defendants were living in the U.S. legally, in three different states: Illinois, Missouri and New York. Three had become naturalized citizens and the remaining three had attained either refugee or legal resident status.

    "Today's charges and arrests underscore our resolve to identify, thwart and hold accountable individuals within the United States who seek to provide material support to terrorists and terrorist operations operating in Syria and Iraq," said Assistant Attorney General John P. Carlin.

    "Preventing the provision of supplies, money and personnel to foreign terrorist organizations like ISIL remains a top priority," Carlin said, using an acronym for the Islamic State.

    The Justice Department said the charges of conspiring to provide and providing material support to terrorists carry penalties ranging up to 15 years imprisonment for each count and fine as high as $250,000. The crime of conspiring to kill and maim people in a foreign country carries a penalty of up to life in prison.

    The hypocrisy of this is well, just a normal state of affairs really. Sad none the less. How about they stop all money and equipment being sent overseas to terrorists; from people and the Government

    Compared to the Saudis I wonder how much financial support these six immigrants actually sent.

    When I was kid I raised money for UNICEF every Halloween collecting pennies between dental death sweets.
    (Those were some of the happiest days. Hey, what happened to Bonomos Turkish Taffy ? Curious - then watch the following advertisement...)

    Cash
    Sent to Turkey - $5850
    Sent to Saudi - $450
    Sent to Bosnia - $1900 (might have been them sending money to family though which is what illegal immigrants tend to do...)
    Sent to Unknown - $1,100 (might have been them sending money to family though which is what illegal immigrants tend to do....)

    Goodies
    Army surplus $2451.51 in value



    Cost of investigation - millions
    Cost of court case - millions
    Cost of imprisonment for 6 guys - millions (unless they sell them to Corporate Prison, then even more)

    Amount of money sent by US to "friendly islamic extremists" in Syria - Over a billion?

    Victory for the bankers again
