By The Blaze. The FBI has uncovered a makeshift military training camp used by Islamic terrorists in rural Macon County, Alabama. . .
To make matters worse, federal investigators say there is a connection between the Alabama camp and the massive terror compound discovered in New Mexico last year.
The Alabama property is owned by Siraj Wahhaj, investigators say. Wahhaj is the same man who reportedly led the small group of terrorists at the New Mexico camp, where the jihadis allegedly trained young children to carry out school shootings. . .
In March, Wahhaj and the four other adults living at the New Mexico compound were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of “providing material support to terrorists, conspiracy to murder an officer or employee of the United States, kidnapping, possessing a firearm while unlawfully in the United States, and other charges,” the Associated Press reported.

FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity told lawmakers on Capitol Hill there are 850 open domestic terrorism investigations, with 40% racially motivated violent extremism.
In the Alabama case the group may not have carried out an attack, but the remains of a child believed to belong to Wahhaj, who is being charged with kidnapping were also found on the property. (Read more from “FBI Uncovers Homegrown Terror Training Camp in Alabama” HERE)
