Va. man pleads guilty to helping terror group

Va. man pleads guilty to helping Pakistani terrorist group with Web video propaganda By The Associated Press

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) ' A Virginia man has pleaded guilty to supporting a Pakistani terrorist group by making a propaganda video and distributing it on the Internet.

Twenty-four-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge, Va., who has been jailed since his September arrest, entered the plea on Friday.

Prosecutors allege Jubair produced and uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube last year on behalf of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Pakistani group that the U.S. has designated as a terrorist group since 2001.

Court documents show that Ahmad, who came to the U.S. from Pakistan as a 19-year-old, was the subject of a two-year FBI investigation. An affidavit states he received training from Lashkar while living in Pakistan.

Ahmad was charged with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
