USA v. Niazi, Ahmadullah
Santa Ana, CA

Al Qaeda

[CDCA] Ahmadullah Niazi, brother-in-law of Osama bin Laden's former bodyguard, was arrested on charges he lied about ties to terrorist groups on citizenship and passport papers. In separate filings at the Superior Court of Orange County an FBI informant Craig Monteilh claimed he recorded Niazi discussing jihad, weapons and plans to blow up abandoned buildings. The indictment against Niazi was dismissed in September 2010.
