British terror webmaster gets 10 years
by UPI

LONDON -- A computer whiz who pleaded guilty in London to running a network of computer sites promoting terrorism was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Younis Tsouli, 23, is the son of a Moroccan diplomat, The Washington Post reported Friday.

"He actually served as a kind of travel agent, setting up suicide bombers with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi," a radical Islamic insurgent leader killed last year, Evan F. Kohlmann, counterterrorism analyst told the Post. "He represents an unusual phenomenon: someone who is homegrown, who lives in the West, and has managed to make that jump into the world of real terrorism."

One of the postings on Tsouli's Web site included a threat against the military base where the USS John F. Kennedy is docked.

U.S. officials released a statement Thursday saying the threat, posted in 2004, "has already been thoroughly investigated," and was considered "not to be credible."
