Iraqi Man Pleads Guilty in Kentucky Terrorism Case

An Iraqi man has pleaded guilty to 10 charges of conspiring to send weapons, money and explosives to al-Qaida in Iraq.

Today, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi also pleaded guilty to two counts of lying to the federal government about his association with a terrorist organization.
