Cornhole Watch: Abdella Ahmad Tounisi, Khalid Ouazzani, Sabirhan Hasanoff

Abdella Ahmad Tounisi: A suburban Chicago teenager has pleaded not guilty to charges he sought to join an al-Qaida-linked militant group fighting Bashar Assad's regime in Syria.

Sabirhan Hasanoff: Australian accountant Sabirhan Hasanoff turned to al-Qaeda.

AUSTRALIAN accountant Sabirhan Hasanoff had a good life before he "threw that all away'' and became a jihadist.

For the first time since his 2010 arrest, the Adelaide-raised father-of-three has publicly revealed what turned him from a respected accountant to agreeing to conduct a surveillance operation of the New York Stock Exchange, hand over tens of thousands of dollars to al-Qaeda associates and seek out how he could fight alongside other Muslims in war zones.

Related: Khalid Ouazzani who awaits his sentencing on terrorism charges was apparently found during the investigation of Sabirhan Hasanoff.
A Kansas City man supported a “nascent” plot to bomb the New York Stock Exchange, an FBI official said Tuesday at a Washington D.C. hearing.

Deputy FBI Director Sean Joyce said federal investigators used secret surveillance warrants to identify Khalid Ouazzani, who is awaiting sentencing in Missouri on terrorism-related charges, as part of the scheme.

Its unknown which if any programs resulted in these disruptions.

I would think a standard FISA warrant would have been sufficient as Hasanoff was in contact with known terrorists in Yemen.

Update: Damn its good to be a gangsta.
