Regulators: N.J. nuclear plant employee was an Islamic jihadist – Homeland Security Newswire

A New Jersey man accused of joining al Qaeda in Yemen spoke openly of militant views while working at American nuclear plants, according to a report by the inspector general of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that proposes tightening personnel security rules.

The New York Times’s Scott Shane writes that the report from the inspector general, Hubert T. Bell, says that the man, Sharif Mobley, who is charged by Yemeni authorities with murdering a hospital guard during an escape attempt in March, said he told others in his labor union: “We are brothers in the union, but if a holy war comes, look out.”
