Samir Khan's father responds to his son's alleged terror website, click arrow above for video. CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - One day after WBTV aired a story about a former Charlotte man being the new alleged author of the first al-Qaeda online magazine in English, that man's father is responding. Samir Khan's dad still lives in Charlotte. He emailed his comments to us through a spokesperson.
The spokesperson says Zafar Khan "is concerned" about Samir and "has been active in trying to get Samir to change. " That spokesperson also says he and Zafar found out "more and more people have tried to advise Samir and correct him."
Zafar, the spokesperson also wrote, is currently "out-of-town". We tracked Samir down back in 2007 when the then-22-year-old was running a pro-Jihad blog out of his parents north Charlotte home. It was a slick site, in English, said to be helping recruit for al-Qaeda. It was eventually shut down.
Back then, we stopped him in the parking lot of his job and asked if he was helping recruit for al-Qaeda. He said no. He also said he was not helping recruit for terrorism at all.
Top federal sources are telling national reporting agencies that Khan is now in the country of Yemen. They say he bought a round trip ticket, but never flew back home. "And just why was he NOT placed on the no-fly list in 2007?" More from this source...
