A man accused of having ties to two terrorist groups pleaded guilty in December 2011, and has been cooperating with the government, the Justice Department revealed Monday.

Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame pleaded guilty to nine terrorism charges and could go to prison for the rest of his life.

He was a leader of the Somali terror group Al-Shabaab and arranged a weapons deal with the Yemen-based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, according to the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.

The U.S. military captured Warsame at sea in April 2011 while he was traveling from Yemen to Somalia, the U.S. attorney said.

    Why don't you post his picture on this story? If it was some 19 year old kid with a marijuana possession arrest you would gladly supply his picture. Another example how CAIR and the self-loathing lefty media keep us in the dark on many stories such as this.
