Detroit Muslim gang run by prisoner in SuperMax
...This raises even more serious questions about the Obama administration's policy of bringing al Qaeda detainees into the US prison system including the SuperMax facilities. Surprisingly, Time did not mention this aspect of the case. It should be an issue that Obama and his attorney general must address.
According to documents filed in U.S. District Court here earlier this week, Abdullah, 53, called his followers to an “offensive jihad,” rather than a “defensive jihad,” and urged them to carry, and use, firearms and swords. The documents note the group was evicted from its Detroit mosque earlier this year because it failed to pay property taxes.
The precise origins of the Ummahs are unclear. Its national leader is Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, a militant former civil rights activist also known as H. Rap Brown. In 2002, he was convicted of fatally shooting two Georgia police officers. He is serving a life sentence at a federal prison.
H. Rap Brown is a pretty notorious figure. I suspect that the FBI has been watching him closely, but it did not stop him from pushing these guys into and offensive jihad. I suspect this was one of the concerns of the FBI director about the movement of the Gitmo detainees to the US.
