After a New Mexico judge bonded the five Islamic radicals accused of training nearly a dozen children to become school shooters, newly filed court documents reveal at least two of the suspects planned a terror attack in Atlanta.
What are the details?
According to WSB-TV, court documents show the suspects sought to target Grady Memorial Hospital in downtown Atlanta, in addition to law enforcement and “specific targets such as teachers, schools, banks and other ‘corrupt’ institutions.”
Prosecutors revealed the stunning information in a 13-page document filed in court on Friday. They are asking a judge to reconsider granting the five suspects bail, citing the planned attacks and the tragic death of 3-year-old Abdul-Ghani Wahha.
Police have criminally charged the boy’s father, Siraj Wahha, and his partner, Jany Leveille, for his death.
To support their motion, prosecutors said they recovered a 10-page, handwritten document titled “Phases of a Terrorist Attack” from the remote New Mexico compound.
The document contains “instructions for ‘The one-time terrorist,’ instructions on the use of a ‘choke point,’ a location ‘called the ideal attack site,’ the ‘ability to defend the safe haven,’ the ‘ability to escape-perimeter rings,’ and ‘sniper position detection procedure,” the court filing said, according to CNN.
In a journal, Leveille “expressed her displeasure with Grady Hospital … due to the treatment she and her mother received there,” the court filings said. However, the document did not elaborate on what Leveille was referring to.
Additionally, the documents claim Leveille and other adults at the compound joked “about dying in Jihad,” while children admitted to receiving “advanced” firearms training and instructions to target law enforcement personnel “when the time came.”
