Shocker: Minnesota Mosques Recruiting for Al-Qaeda

Hard to believe these devoutly religious types would be involved in terrorism, isn't it? Next thing you know we'll find out we have terror moles in the military.
Authorities unsealed terrorism-related charges Monday against eight Americans they said recruited young people to fight for an Islamist group in Somalia that is linked to Al Qaeda.

The charges said Somali-American men were promised "true brotherhood" and "fun" and were recruited in Minneapolis mosques to fight for al-Shabaab, which the U.S. accuses of being Al Qaeda's proxy.

Indictments say some attended terrorist training camps where they received instruction in firing small arms and machine guns, and indoctrination in "anti-Ethiopian, anti-American, anti-Israel and anti-Western beliefs," according to a federal affidavit.

FBI Director Robert Mueller has said the case is worrisome because it shows young men raised in the U.S. can be recruited by terrorists overseas.
I think it's time for Obama to apologize to the Muslim world for offending them with these arrests.
