Smiling “Just Fireworks” Terrorist Not Smiling Now: Ahmed Mohamed Pleads to Being a Terrorist

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, one half of the Muslim duo caught driving on an obscure highway near Goose Creek, South Carolina in the middle of the night, with pipe bombs, laptops, and Korans, back in August of last year?
The claimed it was “just fireworks” and that they were going to spend a weekend grilling or something. Yup, “grilling” Americans. They were driving near a military installation which stores nuclear weapons and held terrorist enemy combatants. With the Yemeni Mohamed was Yousef Megahed, an Egyptian. They both smiled in their mugshots and in court proceedings.
“Just Fireworks” Terrorist Ahmed Mohamed: That Was Then . . .



This Is Now . . .

I told you there was talk of a plea deal in this case. And today, there’s no more smiling. Mohamed pleaded guilty (read the plea deal here) to material support to terrorists, which means the government must have had a very strong case, and Mohamed a very weak defense.

In the court document, he admits to providing material to support terrorists. He also acknowledges that a YouTube video he produced was to be used in “preparation for or in carrying out the killing of employees of the United States,” including uniformed personnel.

Hmmm . . . where are his friends at CAIR–constantly defending him–now? Where’s CAIR’s Ahmed Bedier, this terrorist’s constant verbal mash-note utterer?
Crickets chirping . . . .
Watch for the other shoe to fall soon on Megahed, if–as he should be required to do–Mohamed testifies against Megadeath, er Megahed. That would usually be a part of any plea deal, but it’s not in Mohamed’s. Though, if he helps, it will be taken into account in his sentencing. Still, never bet on the competence of the Justice Department. This is one of those rare, praiseworthy moments for DoJ in the War against Islamic Terrorism.
See South Florida-based investigator Bill Warner’s site for more info. Bill followed the case closely and uncovered a great deal of info over the last year, some of which I cited here.
The Good News: One smiling “Just Fireworks” terrorist down, one to go. The Bad News: One Islamic terrorism supporter down, hundreds of millions to go.

You need to take a greater role in things… there are so few….
I know you feel your posts are enough.. but we need a Leader…
there is no one to lead this idea of a Republic…
so odd… that so few are willing to lead

What would John Adams say? Or John Hancock? Francis Lewis? George Walton? Thomas Jefferson? Clark? Hopkinson? William Williams? Samuel Chase?
At some point in time these Men said that there was something larger than them. The idea of a Republic.
And so many after them proved that their Ideals were Attainable….
Through strength of character and stuburness…
America was born.. and the Ideal of a Republic spread.. all the way West to the Mexico.. no-one wanted the area north of the rio grande.. so some Americans from Tennesee came and claimed it…Houston, Austin.. When you come to the Alamo you have to remove your hat.. because to Texas this is a sacred place.
If you spend much time in Texas, you learn that it is a hard place… but Free…
Freedom is not Free…

Page 10, yeah they have a strong case, because HE TOLD THEM what he intended to do, duhhh. Don’t ever talk to the cops, stupids.

What’s interesting about the plea agreement is the fact that the laptop and it’s contents are specifically mentioned. I would suspect that, using that laptop, the government managed to gain access to MANY websites of interest to terrorists.
Love to see that “friends” list, contact list, history, saved passwords.
By making a plea agreement, rather than proceeding to trial, the government gave itself a priceless leg up on intelligence.

Debbie, as you get ready to launch the next generation of debbieschlussel.com–I truly hope you will have:
*A keyword search–to get the DS newbies access to the accumulated info you have archived on a topic such as this.
*An “Reality orientation center” where you will have a list of terrorists, sympthizers in some kind of a flow chart to show who’s related to who–complete with links to what you archived on the culprits. The same could be done with the losers in the government on other issues such as illegal immigration/amnesty.
*A “told you so” feature where it will chronicle your stories over time on a particular topic.
This story makes this point as clearly as anything ever could. You told us when it first happened–that we were being fed BS by the MSM and the CAIR types who claimed discrimination and that it was just fireworks in the trunk, etc.
Despite what must have been overwhelmingly damning evidence–one still wonders if Megahed will get off free based on how hard the feds seem to try to let these guys go. They always seem to find a way to blame the USA and get the bad guys off. Even our US Supreme court now wants to allow foreign terrorists, such as are held at Gitmo, to be able to sue us in US federal courts now with rights reserved only to American citizens.

DS was all over this one right from the beginning!
Kudos to the Goose Creek Cops: Now the courts need to hammer these mooks and make an example of them for any future Jihad Johnnies to consider. But given our government’s Islamo patronizing, that may be too much to ask.
How about we Keep Gitmo open and make reservations for these two happy looking chaps?

In response to your “Where’s CAIR’s Ahmed Bedier…Crickets chirping,” my understanding is that Bedier recently left CAIR.

Why would he stop smiling? He gets to spend soft time in a US prison, where he gets his halal food and 5 prostrations a day to “allah.” He will have the privilege of converting angry blacks to the religion of peace. And he becomes a jihad hero. Paleoarab homes will be blanketed with his picture. Meanwhile, the current and prospective US presidents will keep treating his murder cult as a movement for “peace.”
