So He Just Wanted A Break, Eh?
[Comments enabled]

The narrative was that a mechanic who sabotaged a plane -- which was caught before takeoff -- was pissed off because he had his crack at overtime being jeopardized by labor negotiations.  Oh, he did get his overtime to fix the problem he caused.

But his alleged motivation may have been a lie.

The new evidence presented by prosecutors includes that Alani has a brother in Iraq who may be involved with the Islamic State extremist group as well as statements Alani made about wishing Allah would use “divine powers” to harm non-Muslims.

Alani, 60, also recently sent a $700 wire transfer to someone in Iraq — where he has extended family — and had videos on his cellphone depicting Islamic State mass murders he shared with others, prosecutors said. In addition, the new evidence shows Alani traveled to Iraq in March but did not disclose that to authorities after his arrest.

The accused is a naturalized US citizen originally from Iraq -- one of the oh-so-wonderful people we have let in from the sand nations and allowed to call the US "home."

Now about all those Somalis and others who we've let in..... and by the way, roughly a half-dozen or so rapefugees and those we've admitted and allowed to be naturalized have "decided" to in some way help ISIS, either abroad or intending to attack something or someone here -- that we know about and have caught.

You still think it's a good idea to let those folks into the United States eh?

BTW this jackwad was denied bond.  Gee, I wonder why.
