…and don’t let that name fool you:

A 27-year-old Massachusetts man has been charged with conspiring with others to carry out terror attacks against shoppers in U.S. malls and against U.S. military in Iraq.

Authorities in Boston say Tarek Mehanna (TEH’-rek meh-HAH’-nah) of Sudbury sought training in terrorist training camps and worked with others from 2001 to May 2008 on the conspiracy to “kill, kidnap, maim or injure” people in foreign countries and to kill prominent U.S. politicians.

Federal prosecutors say Mehanna and his conspirators tried to get automatic weapons for a mall attack, but their plans were foiled when they could not get the weapons.

We can expect him to claim to be an idolized version of the compete Renaissance man any minute now.

Remember know the Flemish menace and save a life!

Update: HotAir somehow misses the Flemish connection!
