42 Ways of Supporting Jihad

Hard or impossible to stop, but a 29 year old "window washer" named Barry Walter Bujol Jr. (he must make his namesake proud) was accused by a Grand Jury of trying to aid and abet al Qaeda terrorists by providing GPS devices and cell phones, along with military weapons information.

The FBI JTTF began investigating Bujol two years ago when it was discovered that he was sending emails to Anwar al-Awlaki.

Apparently al-Awlaki provided our would be American jihadist with a document titled, "42 Ways of Supporting Jihad." Bujol is being charged with providing support to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and identity theft (Bujol had a TWIC card) that could have gained him access to sensitive areas of sea ports.

"This arrest is a sobering reminder of the threat we continue to face," said FBI Houston Special Agent in Charge Richard Powers.

Joseph Varela, an attorney for Bujol, declined to comment on the case.

Bujol is scheduled to have an arraignment on June 8, 2010 in Houston.

It is hard to defend this country against the feeble minded individual who seeks glory through jihad and attempts to harm his or her countrymen. Opinion: Jail is too little punishment for people like this, even if that is all that is legally available.
