Two Islam Iraqi refugees — apparently the moderate cute and cuddly kind that only are allowed into the United States — are off to court today on terror-related charged.
|Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab|
Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, was nailed for (a) attempting to provide material support to ISIS, (b) procurement of citizenship or naturalization unlawfully and (c) making false statements to investigators. Gasp again.
Al-Jayab explained he was "eager to see blood " — apparently someone else's. "God has facilitated" his travels, he explained. The FBI facilitated his arrest.
He has been in the country since 2012 living in Wisconsin and Arizona.
Three years of civilized society had no apparent impact on warped brain.
U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner said in a statement that there was no indication Al-Jayab was planning any terror attacks in the U.S., though he represented a "potential safety threat," according to Fox News.

Two men born in Iraq who came to the U.S. as refugees were set to appear in court Friday on terror-related charges in California and Texas, as investigators say one of the men wrote that he wanted to travel to Syria because he was "eager to see blood."
A criminal complaint unsealed Thursday accused 23-year-old Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, of Sacramento, Calif., of traveling to Syria to fight alongside terrorist organizations and lying to government investigators about it.
Almost simultaneously in Houston, federal authorities announced the arrest of Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, on charges of attempting to provide material support to ISIS, procurement of citizenship or naturalization unlawfully and making false statements to investigators. He was the 80th person charged under Federal law in an ISIS-related case since April 2013, and the first in 2016.
In addition to writing that he was "eager to see blood," Al-Jayab also claimed that he wanted to learn "long range shooting," and that "God has facilitated" his travels, court documents show.
The documents did not indicate whether the two cases were connected. However, the affidavit says Al-Jayab communicated with an unnamed individual living in Texas in April 2013 to see if he could receive training in various weapons.
Authorities say Al-Jayab, who came to the U.S. from Syria in October 2012, discussed plans to return to Syria and fight alongside terror groups with several other individuals on social media. The complaint says Al-Jayab was living in Wisconsin and Arizona during this period.
Social media and other accounts say that as soon as he arrived in the United States, he began saying he wanted to return to Syria to "work," which the FBI says is believed to be a reference "to assisting in and supporting violent jihad."
