A U.S. citizen accused of trying to sneak out of the country to go on ‘jihad’ and provide al-Qaeda with money, GPS receivers and restricted U.S. military documents will stand trial today on terrorism charges in Texas.
Prosecutors allege that Barry Walter Bujol Jr., 30, referred to al-Qaeda members as ‘brothers’ and said he wanted to ‘die with the brothers for the cause of Allah, and to be in Heaven.’
He was arrested in May 2010 after using fake identification to sneak into a Houston port and board a ship bound for the Middle East, authorities said.
