Federal law enforcement officials said Monday that four Southern California men have been charged with plotting to help al Qaeda and the Taliban kill Americans and attack U.S. military bases and other targets overseas. The men — Air Force veteran Sohiel Omar Kabir, Muslim converts Ralph Deleon and Miguel Alejandro Santana Vidriales, and Arifeen David Gojali — reportedly sold off their possessions to raise money to travel to a jihadist training camp in Afghanistan, after being indoctrinated in the radical Islamist doctrine of the late al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki.
