A natural-born, 26-year-old Muslim man from New Jersey, Sharif Mobley, was recently rounded up by Yemeni authorities in a sweep of terrorist suspects. After being allowed to go to the hospital for an illness, Mobley tried to escape by snatching a guard's gun. He killed the guard, but was recaptured in a shootout with anti-terror police, and now sits in Yemeni custody. So that's actually the good news. The bad news is that, between 2002 and 2008, he worked as a laborer at various nuclear power plants in New Jersey, which means he could have information that certain evildoers would be very happy to get their hands on. Good thing we are finally getting around to upgrading security at those plants, kind of.
