WIFE OF NC TERRORISM SUSPECT DESCRIBES ELABORATE POLICE RUSE

McClatchey Papers

The wife of Daniel Boyd, accused of being a terrorist ringleader, said Tuesday that her husband and two sons are “completely innocent” of charges that they plotted to kill themselves and others in the name of Islam.

Meeting at a restaurant in Garner on Tuesday afternoon, Sabrina Boyd sat covered head to toe in traditional Muslim garb, only her brown almond eyes visible. She and her husband, who years ago had military training in Afghanistan and fought with Muslim rebels against the Soviets, were committed to living pure and honest lives, she said. They believed in helping their neighbors and they attempted, on occasion, to help the children of immigrant Muslims hold their faith while growing up amid the pressures of American culture.

“My husband was not plotting,” Boyd said. “It’s premature for everyone to jump on the guilty bandwagon.”

Leaders of the Muslim American Society’s Raleigh branch made a similar point earlier in the day at a news conference held to urge the media not to convict the men before they’ve had a trial.

But Boyd, a 41-year-old mother of five and U.S.-born convert to Islam, reserved her sharpest comments for what she called a cruel trap that law enforcement authorities set up to get her out of her house Monday while agents scoured it for documents after the arrest of her husband, two sons and four other men.

Boyd, whose family lives in the Johnston County community of Willow Spring, described a harrowing experience Monday afternoon when she answered the door to find a man she thought was a family friend wearing a shirt that appeared to be bloodied. He told her that Daniel and their three sons, Dylan, Noah and Zakariya, were in a serious car crash. He asked her to get into a Highway Patrol cruiser that would take her to Duke Hospital, where they were being treated.

Boyd summoned her daughter and pregnant daughter-in-law. They wrapped their heads in scarves, grabbed their Qurans and flew out the door. For Boyd, it was a particularly painful experience. Her 16-year-old son, Luqman, died in a car crash near their home in 2007.

When they arrived at Duke Hospital, the cruiser took them to a construction site at the rear of the facility. A man dressed as a doctor came out and asked whether she was the wife. When she said yes, he extended his hand. She told him she does not shake men’s hands. He then grabbed her wrist and handcuffed her.

“I’m not a doctor. I’m an agent and your family is not in the hospital,” he told her. “You’re being detained, and you need to cooperate with us.”

Boyd estimates she was then surrounded by 30 agents who frisked her and asked whether she had weapons or weapons of mass destruction.

They drove her in a car, separate from her daughter and daughter-in-law, to the Johnston County’s Sheriff’s Department, where she picked up Noah, 15, who was not arrested.

“That was an awful dirty trick,” Boyd said she told the agents. “You guys pulled a horrific lie on me and on my daughters. You know we’ve been through this before.”

U.S. District Attorney George E. B. Holding declined to respond to Boyd’s version. “I am sticking to the four corners of the indictment. We try our cases in court and won’t go back and forth before then,” he said Tuesday.

Trips called pilgrimages

Boyd said the many trips the family made abroad, especially to Jerusalem, were pilgrimages to give her sons an exposure to the Arabic language and a chance to experience the daily rhythms of life in predominantly Muslim communities.

“The point of a pilgrimage is to see the Al-Aksa mosque, the Dome of the Rock, to hear the call to prayer and to make a prayer,” she said.

Boyd said her husband and sons attempted to make two trips to Israel. Daniel and Noah were admitted in 2006. One year later, when her husband wanted to take Zakariya to Jerusalem to help him cope with his brother’s death, the two were denied entry at the airport in Tel Aviv. After being detained for two days, they were flown to France.

As to charges her family stockpiled military-style weapons, Boyd said her family enjoyed hunting and shooting. “They exercise their constitutional right to bear arms,” she said.

    WHY ARE MUSLIM WOMEN SO BRAINWASHED THAT THEY BELIEVE THEIR HUSBANDS AND OTHER MEN IN THEIR LIVES’ LIES ABOUT THE REAL REASON FOR THESE WOMEN TO WEAR THEIR “NON-ENTITY DRESS”. A MUSLIM WOMAN TOLD ME THAT THEY WEAR IT BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT TO “SIN” IN “MAKING” OR “CAUSING” OTHER MEN TO OGLE AT THEM WITH SEXUAL THOUGHTS, AND BECAUSE OF “MODESTY” THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO WEAR THE “NON-ENTITY DRESS” COVERING THEM FROM HEAD TO TOE. WHEN ARE THESE WOMEN GOING TO REALIZE THAT IS A TOTAL LIE, FULL OF BULL CRAP! IT IS JUST MANIPULATION FROM THE MEN TO CONTINUE TO TOTALLY CONTROL THE WOMEN! SINCE WHEN ONE IS GUILTY AND RESPONSIBLE OF CAUSING BAD THOUGHTS OTHER STUPID MALE HUMANS!! WAKE UP MUSLIM WOMEN YOU ARE MANIPULATED, LIED TO AND USED AND ABUSED FOR CENTURIES. RAISE UP AND WAKE UP! YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHER PEOPLE’S THOUGHTS!!!!!

    This Daniel Boyd case is a false flag operation take away US citizen rights guaranteed by the bill of rights about freedom of speech and gun ownership etc etc and to scare people –big time.

    Remember when the “Reagan Doctrine,” and sacrifice against the “Evil Empire” of International Communism, was patriotic?
    Reagan said introducing leaders of the Afghan Mujahedeen (from the word Jihad) to media on the White House lawns (1985): “These gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s founding fathers.”
    Daniel Patrick Boyd (aka; Saifullah) of NC was a teenager when he was in Afghanistan, a valiant soul who sacrificed himself in the US backed proxy war.
    And yet now he is in prison in Virginia and the FBI calls those 1980’s and 90’s camps as “terrorist camps”.
    If they were, then they were US supported “terrorist camps”. [I guess along the lines of the Fort Benning Georgia based ‘School of the Americas’!!!]
    And note that Erik Prince of Blackwater (Xe) has been charged with the fact that he [to quote]: “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe,” and that Prince’s companies “encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life.”
    This is explosive to say the least, and it is being reported in the world news, but not here widely? Why is this being buried from in the main news in the USA???????!!!!!!!!
