He Got One
A slightly belated but nevertheless hearty Yo Ho Ho to Dr. Rusty Shackleford at the Jawa Report for helping to capture and convict a would-be terrorist -- Mohammed Radwan Obeid, a Jordanian who fraudulently entered the United States and was (he claimed) trying to set up a terror cell that would carry out an attack that would make 9/11 feel like a "headache."
Because Dr. S. discussed Obeid and published his e-mail address (which Obeid had unwisely left in a plea for conspirators on a jihadi website), a reader began corresponding with Obeid and succeeded in gathering enough evidence to interest the FBI. Obeid eventually pled guilty to lying to investigators and will receive (we all hope) the maximum five years... before being deported back to Jordan.
Have some virtual champagne on Big Lizards, Rusty! And accept this laurel and hearty handshake for a job well done.
Oh, and happy blogiversary, too.

There should be a Senate Investigation!!! Something about the methods used sounds illegal to me. How are Terrorists going to commit acts of Terror if their rights keep being violated?!?
