A California man who used Facebook to connect with al Qaeda and planned to train its fighters in Pakistan was scheduled to be sentenced Monday in federal court.
A California man pleaded guilty Friday to a federal terrorism charge after admitting he attempted to assist al Qaeda by providing weapons training, the U.S. attorney's office said.
A California Islamist was arrested Friday in Santa Ana on charges that he assisted al Qaeda and was planning to become a foot soldier for the terror group, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Nguyen, who also went by the name Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum, said he had traveled to Syria and for five months fought with rebel forces opposing the regime of Bashar Assad.
Nguyen told the recruiter he was born to wage jihad and he agreed to travel to Pakistan via Mexico in order to train 30 al Qaeda fighters.
