Ooops!! Feds Screws Up; Didn’t Have Court Stenographer in Brooklyn Courtroom During Verdict of Convicted al Qaeda Terrorist

By Allan Lengel

A source tells The New York Daily News:

“I have never heard anything like this happening before — ever.”

John Marzulli of the Daily News writes that the court may have to be a do-over of the verdict in the federal Brooklyn trial of convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Abid Naseer.

Apparently the problem was there was no stenographer in the courtroom when the guilty verdict was read Wednesday for Naseer on three counts of conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist organization and to build a bomb to attack a shopping center in Manchester, England.

About 100 people were in the courtroom at the time including federal agents, lawyers and reporters.

As a result of the oversight, a second verdict might be necessary, The Daily News reports.

Possibilities include getting affidavits from courtroom witnesses or reassembling the jury and having the verdict read again.

The FBI is trying to track down a group of British computer hackers who allegedly called in terrorist threats across the U.S., Breitbart reports.

The hackers belong to a group called the “ISISGang.”

Three British youths threatened schools, universities and conference centers with threats of bombs and shootings, according to the FBI.

What’s unclear is whether the group is affiliated with ISIS or if the youths are just using the name as a scare-tactic.

One of the threats was directed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 children and six adults were killed in a mass shooting. The caller said his name was “Mohammed Jamile” and claimed he was en route to “kill your asses.”

A retired British businessman will be extradited to the US after losing a High Court battle, reports the Mail Online.

Christopher Tappin, 64, faces charges of conspiring to sell parts for Iranian missiles in the US, which he denies. In fighting extradition, he claimed entrapment by the FBI, which a British judge dismissed as an “unsustainable” claim, reports the Mail. He may now face up to 35 years in prison.

Tappin is suspected to have unlawfully tried to export batteries for Hawk air defence missiles.
