Abu Nancy goes to the pen. And still no mosques anywhere in the U.S. have any program to keep converts from subscribing to this version of Islam that Muslims in America all ostensibly reject. “Wannabe terrorist from Armstrong County gets 8 1/2 years in plot,” from WPXI.com, July 16 (thanks to Kenneth):
PITTSBURGH “” A judge has handed down an eight-and-a-half-year sentence to a man who pleaded guilty to using the Internet to promote terror attacks against American military and civilian targets.
Prosecutors said he promoted attacks in posts he made on an Islamic extremist web forum he moderated.
Emerson Begolly, 24, of Redbank Township, Armstrong County, also pleaded guilty to having a loaded pistol when he allegedly bit two FBI agents who tried to question him before his arrest in January 2011.
U.S. attorney David Hickton said, “Today, Emerson Begolly was sentenced to eight and a half years in federal prison for soliciting like-minded radical jihadists to commit atrocities and murder, and for using a concealed firearm during his assault on FBI agents.”
Begolly, whose Internet nickname was Abu Nancy, faced a mandatory minimum of five years in federal prison on the weapons charge and up to 10 years on the one count of solicitation to commit a crime of violence.
Hickton said he believes Begolly was “ready to kill.”
“Begolly boasted that if police came for him he would make Waco look like a tea party. He espoused it was acceptable to kill hostages,” said Hickton.
Begolly apologized “for the things I said on the web. I shamed my family. I want to follow a path of peace.”
