Macon County, Alabama – Terror Training Camp Discovered

 In Domestic

Macon County, Alabama – If you were just wandering around in the countryside, and happened upon this jihadi training camp, you might think it was just a dump created by people who didn’t care about their property. You’d be wrong. The FBI described the terror training camp as a “makeshift military style obstacle course.”

The property is owned by Siraj Wahhaj, the same person that led the New Mexico terror training camp that we previously reported last year. It is a plot of land just up a dirt road road from downtown Tuskegee, Alabama.

“Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security.” Tim Fuhrman, Former Special Agent with the FBI field office in Mobile, Alabama to KATU

It’s not clear how the FBI discovered the plot of land. According to Congressional testimony by FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity, there are currently 850 cases of domestic terrorism open in FBI files. About 40% of those cases are reportedly linked to racially motivated violent extremism. Does that mean 60% are the result of some other kind of terrorism? Let that sink in. Those are the ones the FBI knows about. There could be hundreds more that they do not.

The New Mexico terror training camp had been training to conduct school shootings… training children on the finer points of killing their classmates. Siraj Wahhaj had a 3 year old son, Abdul Wahhaj, who was found buried on the NM property. As we previously reported, Siraj Wahhaj is the son of radical Imam Siraj Wahhaj Sr.. Apparently he comes by the “terrorist” label honestly.

The FBI conducted a search warrant on the Alabama property, but at this point there are no details on what they found, if they have completed the search.

See something, say something. Not everything people see will be a terror training camp or even a real danger. But sometimes it just might be critical to stopping a possible attack.

“Sometimes if you see something it isn’t suspicious. It’s someone exercising their first amendment rights or living the way they do that you may not agree with but does not pose a criminal or national security threat, but sometimes they actually are.” Tim Fuhrman to KATU
