Homegrown Terror Training Camp Discovered by FBI in Alabama

In a shocking story, a homegrown terror training camp was discovered in Alabama by the FBI.

At first glance, this appeared to be just an abandoned dump.

The plot of land in Macon County, Alabama was described by the FBI as a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” in a search warrant. It belongs to a group of terrorists and is led by Siraj Wahhaj. The property is a few miles outside of downtown Tuskegee and located up a dirt road.

“Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security,” said Tim Fuhrman, Former Special Agent with the FBI field office in Mobile, Alabama, per ABC3340.

This property is now being linked to another compound in New Mexico where children were being trained to carry out deadly acts of terror in America.

At this point people have to be wondering how many of these compounds are out there. After one was found in New Mexico and another in Alabama, how many of these compounds could be out there in rural areas?

FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity spoke to lawmakers on Capitol Hill and noted there are 850 open domestic terrorism investigations. What makes this even scarier is 40% of these are radically motivated violent extremism.

“The threat of domestic terrorism exists in every region of the United States and affects all walks of life.”

Fuhrman also said that having engaged citizens is the best defense often times.

“Sometimes if you see something it isn’t suspicious. It’s someone exercising their first amendment rights or living the way they do that you may not agree with but does not pose a criminal or national security threat 5but sometimes they actually are.”

That is a great point by Furhman. Everyone needs to keep their eyes open for these types of situations.
