RAMSTACK: Terror cases likely to pile up in courts
When questioned by the FBI, Al-Dellemy is accused of lying to conceal his spying activities.
“The number of these cases underscores the reach of Saddam’s intelligence service in America and the extent to which the former Iraqi regime was concerned with defectors and expatriate groups here,” said Patrick Rowan, U.S. assistant attorney general for national security.
The former Iraqi dictator was not the concern in the case of the five Islamic men convicted of plotting to kill U.S. military personnel at Fort Dix and Fort Monmouth in New Jersey, Dover Air Force Base in Delaware and the U.S. Coast Guard base at Philadelphia.
They were arrested in May 2007 while trying to purchase four M-16 machine guns and three AK-47 rifles from an undercover FBI agent in New Jersey.
Videotapes at their trial showed them getting target practice with small arms in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains and watching videos of Americans being killed by gunfire and roadside bombs.
“These men planned, trained and ceaselessly talked unambiguously about their intention to ambush and kill U.S. soldiers,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Ralph J. Marra Jr.
