The Maryland teenager secretly arrested by the FBI for allegedly conspiring with the woman from the Philadelphia suburbs known as Jihad Jane also spoke of a Columbine-style plot with a Pittsburgh-area friend in a jihadist chat room, according to sources and documents.
“I had a lot of thoughts about you today,” Mohammed K. wrote to his Western Pennsylvania pen pal late last year. “About us both doing martyrdom operations together in my school. . . . It was like we both were in a big truck and had guns and we were shooting randomly at a huge crowd of kids.”
The chats provide new insight into a boy who at age 15 allegedly began helping Colleen LaRose, aka “Jihad Jane,” the 48-year-old Pennsburg woman who U.S. officials say represents a disturbing new face of homegrown terrorism.
