Remains of Child at New Mexico ‘JIHADI’ Compound are Confirmed to be Missing Boy from Georgia

By Mike Brest | Contributor

Authorities have confirmed on Thursday that the remains of a child found at a New Mexico “jihadi” compound are those of a missing Georgia boy.

The New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator confirmed that the remains were those of Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, according to the Associated Press.

The FBI and Georgia police launched an investigation into Wahhaj, who was suspected of abducting his 4-year-old son, Abdul-Ghani, in December from Jonesboro, Georgia. (RELATED: Prosecutors: Son Of Prominent Imam Was Training Children To Commit School Shootings)

He had told his wife that he wanted to perform a ritual on his son and then later took the child to a park, only to never return.

Wahhaj, 39, was one of five adults arrested last week for allegedly training 11 children at a compound north of Taos, New Mexico, to carry out school shootings.

The judge ruled that they do not have to remain in jail while they await trial for child abuse, earlier this week. (REALTED: New Mexico Jihadi Can Leave Jail Until Child Abuse Trial, Judge Rules)

Wahhaj’s father, also named Siraj, is a cleric who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing case.

    ANSWER – Susana Marinez, New Mexico Governor, selected Sarah Backus for judge in 2011. Backus will serve through 2020 as judge…….unless she is impeached or removed by other means.

    Rhetorical question…….Who selected this judge?

    Here’s a case where a judge has perverted justice in favor of a minority while ignoring the needs of the many.
