Arrrgh I'm Crazy One Eyed Hook Handed Terrorist Guy

Now give me some candy....


or I will blow the crap out of your country.

"The United States charged a radical Muslim cleric arrested in Britain on Thursday with aiding terrorists by plotting to create an al Qaeda training camp in America and supporting a hostage-taking attack in Yemen. Just hours after police arrested Abu Hamza al-Masri in a pre-dawn raid in London, U.S. officials announced his indictment in Manhattan federal court on charges that could carry the death penalty.

The 11-count indictment, which was returned by a grand jury on April 19, specifically charges Abu Hamza, 47, with giving "material support and resources to terrorists."

He is accused of having a role in a December 1998 hostage-taking attack in Yemen in which four people were killed and trying to help al Qaeda set up a "terrorist training camp" in Bly, Oregon, from October 1999 to early 2000.

Abu Hamza is also suspected of supporting violence by al Qaeda -- blamed for the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001 -- and the Taliban in Afghanistan (news - web sites) by providing funds and services."

Nice catch, finally.
