Colorado Man Indicted for Terror Support

A Colorado man arrested last week as he was leaving the country to join the Islamic Jihad Union in Pakistan has been indicted:

Jamshid Muhtorov is charged with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization....

The government in Central Asia accused Muhtorov of supporting the Islamic Jihad Union, a militant group fighting the regime in Uzbekistan.

Yes, you read both of those facts correctly. The Islamic Jihad Union was set up to fight the secular government of Uzbekistan. But, oddly enough, they're based in Pakistan.

Pakistan: our "ally" in the war on terror.
