One month after filing for bankruptcy, Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif of Seattle recruited an FBI informant and a Los Angeles man, Walli Mujahidh, to carry out an armed attack on a military recruiting station in Washington. Mujahidh traveled by bus to Seattle, and Abdul-Latif gave the informant $800 to buy guns. Neither Abdul-Latif nor the informant was a stranger to crime. Abdul-Latif had robbery and assault convictions on his record. The FBI described the informant’s criminal history as “extensive,” including at least five felony convictions. Abdul-Latif said he wanted to carry out the attack to “wake the Muslims up.” Federal agents arrested Abdul-Latif and Mujahidh as they inspected automatic rifles in an FBI-rented garage.
