No. 85: U.S. Justice Department Terrorism Charges against Three Brooklyn Men

On February 25, 2015, U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch of the Eastern District of New York announced terrorism charges against three Brooklyn, New York men who allegedly attempted and conspired to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). On February 26, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal carried front page articles about the charges.

The sealed complaint and affidavit in support of arrest warrants was filed on February 24 and unsealed the next day. U.S. Attorney Lynch's press release and the two newspaper articles do not include a link to the case. (See U.S.A. v. Juraboev et al., U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, No. 1:15-mj-172.)

I am offering readers a complimentary 25-page PDF consisting of U.S. Attorney Lynch's 2-page press release and the 23-page complaint. Send an e-mail to and ask for the Juraboev package.
