Terrorist Hired by George Washington U Under Arrest
Remember Jesse Morton, the Muslim convert who recruited for bin Laden’s Al Qaida? He was known as Younus Abdullah Muhammad. He once praised the Fort Hood shooter, wanted to destroy Israel, and admired Malcolm X.
Younus made headlines encouraging attacks against the creators of hit TV-show South Park who he described as enemies of Islam.
The Washington Post reported he has been arrested for soliciting a prostitute and cocaine possession.
Morton, 38 years of age, is accused of bringing cocaine to meet a prostitute.
Morton was once deemed by federal prosecutors as dangerous to “the very freedoms on which our society is based.” But even before leaving prison, he has said in an interview, he began working undercover on counterterrorism operations. He was released in 2015 after serving less than a third of his 11½ -year prison sentence and hired by GWU the following year.
Why did he serve only three years of his sentence? It was due to an FBI agent who “changed” his life and employed him to work with them to solve cases.
Morton was arrested on Dec. 28 in a sting operation by Fairfax police. He answered an ad on Backpage.com for a prostitute, police said. When he showed up at the Governor House Inn & Suites in Falls Church, he was arrested. Police say they found cocaine and a glass pipe in his pack of Marlboro cigarettes. In his car, they said they found another device for smoking crack cocaine.
The Sentinel wrote about him and you can read the summary on this link. We had deep-seated concerns about a long-time terrorist suddenly making a turn-around in three years and being hired at George Washington University to work in a homeland security think tank. Perhaps they were looking for a terrorist to try and understand why people become members of these radical groups or they couldn’t find an American for the job.
Bill O’Reilly interviewed Morton on The O’Reilly Factor. He gave the usual excuses like a bad childhood.
