The FBI announced Monday night that it had busted four men -, including one who served in the Air Force —  who allegedly plotted to join Qaeda and the Taliban to commit “violent jihad” and bomb military bases and government facilities,  the Los Angeles Times reported. [2]

The four men had ties to southern California.

A criminal complaint alleges that one of the men Sohiel Omar Kabir, 34, traveled in July to Afghanistan, where he arranged for terrorist training to be conducted with Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives.

The complaint, according to the LA Times, also alleged that Kabir introduced Ontario, Calif. resident Ralph Deleon, 23, and Upland, Calif., resident Miguel Alejandro Santana, 21, to “radical and violent Islamic doctrine.”
