Authorities Destroy New Mexico Compound Where Islamists Trained Kids to Carry out School Shootings
Disturbing case takes another bizarre turn
In a move that has caused further controversy, authorities have partially destroyed the compound in New Mexico where a group of alleged Islamic terrorists were training children to carry out school shootings.
“The remote New Mexico compound police believe was a school-shooter training ground has been partially destroyed, burying in rubble the underground tunnel at the location where the remains of a young boy were found,” reports Crime Time, noting that the move came after a court order was released allowing for the seizure of a stolen trailer that was located on the compound.
Some have questioned whether the destruction of part of the compound will eliminate vital evidence.
Earlier this week, a judge ordered the release of four of the five alleged jihadists on a signature bond after prosecutors claimed that they were only being targeted because they were “black and Muslim”.
New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez said she “strongly disagreed” with the decision to release the suspects on signature bail, remarking, “Unfortunately, it highlights how extreme the New Mexico Supreme Court has been in dictating pretrial release for all kinds of dangerous criminals.”
On Thursday, authorities found the decomposing body of three-year-old Abdul-ghani Wahha, who was killed in a religious ritual by his father Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of a famous New York imam who is also an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing case.
The suspects hoped that the boy would be resurrected as Jesus and help the group target “corrupt institutions and people” with “violent actions.”
During the initial raid of the compound, authorities found children living in squalor holding boxes of ammo and one was armed.
Meanwhile, most mainstream news networks, notably CNN, have lost interest in the story, something that would have been unlikely if the roles were reversed and the accused had been white fundamentalist Christians.
