His disgust with the U.S. military, the honor of martyrdom and the need to protect Muslims at all costs?

What do you think about this guy?

. -- A North Carolina man accused of plotting international terrorism will appear in federal court for a plea hearing. Daniel Patrick Boyd is scheduled to file a plea Wednesday afternoon in eastern North Carolina. Prosecutors have accused Boyd of leading a group of people, including two of his sons, who plotted and supported terrorism. Boyd's wife, Sabrina, has denied that her husband or sons were involved in any terrorist activity. During an initial court hearing in 2009, federal authorities played audio tapes of Boyd talking about his disgust with the U.S. military, the honor of martyrdom and the need to protect Muslims at all costs. The FBI has said agents seized some two dozen guns and more than 27,000 rounds of ammunition from Boyd's home south of Raleigh.

  • I'll have to get more info from a few different sources; this one seems a little one-sided - maybe this is all the story, but it seems like there is more to it.

  • 27,000 rounds of ammunition isn't really a lot depending on the caliber - we buy .22 rounds in 500 round bricks. My ex probably has 2 dozen guns, he's been collecting them since he was in high school.

    Not saying this guy is or isn't a threat - but I hate the sensationalism of the rounds. 50,000 is a lot.

  • Boyd grew up in the Washington, D.C., area and converted to Islam as a teenager. He traveled with his family and brother to Pakistan two decades ago, and prosecutors say they trained in terrorist camps and fought the Soviet Union.


    In 1991, the Boyd brothers were convicted of robbing a bank in Pakistan, but a sentence that included amputations of a hand and foot was overturned.

  • During an initial court hearing in 2009, federal authorities played audio tapes of Boyd talking about his disgust with the U.S. military, the honor of martyrdom and the need to protect Muslims at all costs. In one, a voice that authorities identified as Boyd, says: "I love jihad. I love to stand there and fight for the sake of Allah."


    The FBI has said agents seized some two dozen guns and more than 27,000 rounds of ammunition from Boyd's home. Authorities have previously said the men went on training expeditions in the weeks leading up to their arrest, practicing military tactics with armor-piercing bullets on a property in rural Caswell County.

  • A 40-year-old North Carolina man pleaded guilty Wednesday to two terrorism-related felonies that could get him a sentence of life in prison.


    Daniel Patrick Boyd, a U.S. citizen, appeared in federal court in New Bern, North Carolina, and pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and conspiracy to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons in a foreign country.


    "Today Daniel Patrick Boyd admitted his role in a multiyear conspiracy to advance violent jihad by recruiting and helping young men travel overseas to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons," said David Kris, assistant attorney general for national security.


    This case proves how our world is changing, added U.S. Attorney George E.B. Holding in North Carolina. "Terrorists are no longer only from foreign countries but also citizens who live within our own borders," he said.
