JIhad in Oregon ?

NEW YORK (AP) - A Lebanese-born Swede wanted on suspicion of plotting to set up a terrorist camp in Oregon has been extradited to the United States.

Oussama Kassir arrived today at FBI offices in Manhattan and later pleaded not guilty in federal court.

Federal prosecutors say Kassir plotted to set up a terrorist camp in the Klamath County city of Bly, and was offering bomb- and poison-making tips on several Web sites.

Prosecutors says Kassir and others wanted to set up the Oregon camp to teach military-style methods so a community of Muslims could move to Afghanistan to fight or receive further training.

Authorities in Oregon have said the camp never materialized beyond a dozen people taking target practice and was abandoned for unknown reasons.
