U.S. Citizen Indicted for Training Al Qaeda Operatives in Germany

The Washington Post:
An Ohio man is being held without bond on charges that he provided explosives training to al-Qaeda operatives in Germany and once plotted to bomb European resorts and U.S. government offices overseas. Federal grand jurors in Columbus, Ohio, contend Christopher Paul studied terrorist tactics in Afghanistan in the early 1990s as al-Qaeda was getting its start. He allegedly recruited others in Germany and trained U.S. colleagues to "fight violent jihad outside the United States."
Full text of indictment is at FindLaw, but Ben Perry is skeptical.
Law professor Glenn Reynolds comments in Instapundit on the tools and gadgets found in Mr. Paul's appartment: "What red-blooded American doesn't have at least most of this stuff?"
