I know. You’re shocked, shocked:

A suspended University of South Florida student facing explosives charges regarded American troops and U.S. allies as invaders of Arab countries, an FBI agent says in federal court documents filed this week.

The agent’s affidavit gives more details about a secretly taped conversation between Ahmed Mohamed, 26, and fellow student Youssef Megahed, 21, and also about the contents of Mohamed’s laptop.

In a sworn affidavit, FBI Special Agent Daniel J. McTavish said that when agents searched Mohamed’s hard drive they found a folder named “Bomb Shock.” It contained files of information on explosives, explosive ingredients and downloads from Web sites about explosives.

Investigators also found another folder labeled “High-Order Explosives,” which included information on the composition and use of explosives, including TNT and C-4…

…Mohamed’s laptop also contained a 12-minute video on transforming a toy remote-controlled car into a detonator. The face of the man narrating the video wasn’t seen, but FBI investigators said Mohamed admitted it was him.

“He explained that he made the tape to assist those persons in Arabic countries to defend themselves against the infidels invading their countries,” McTavish said in his statement.

And Mohamed “added that the technology which he demonstrated in the tape was to be used against those who fought for the United States,” he said.

Yes, question their patriotism.

The next hearing is an arraignment scheduled for October 3.
