Terror Suspect’s Mom Says Son is ‘Not Guilty By Reason of Stupidity’ — She’s Partly Correct

This morning I saw a story about Mohamed Mahmood Alessa, who, along with another man, was arrested at JFK while allegedly on his way to join up with an Al Qaeda afilliate group.

Alessa’s mother claims her son is not a terrorist, just dumb as a box of faulty detonators manufactured by ACME:

New York (CNN) — The mother of one of the two New Jersey men arrested last week at a New York airport allegedly on their way to fight with an al Qaeda-affiliated group in Somalia says the two men are guilty of stupidity — but not of the sinister plan described by authorities.

“Anything makes him angry. But he’s not a terrorist; he’s a stupid kid,” Nadia Alessa said of her U.S.-born son, Mahmood.

It turns out that Mahomed Mahmood Alessa is the man who acheived some level of Internet fame a couple of years ago for being the pillar of brilliance holding this sign:


Some of Alessa’s followers had already done away with several cans of Tropicana frozen concentrate before the error was pointed out.

Score another win for Mother’s Intuition, but just because he’s a moron doesn’t mean he’s not-guilty. Prisons aren’t full of only geniuses.
