Four California men have been charged by the FBI in an alleged terror plot to commit "violent jihad."
The suspects -- Sohiel Omar Kabir, Ralph Deleon, Miguel Alejandro Santana, and Arifeen David Gojali -- were allegedly plotting to join al Qaeda and the Taliban to kill Americans and destroy U.S. targets overseas.
Kabir, who served in the U.S. Air Force from 2000 to 2001, was pointed as being responsible for introducing two of the other men to Islam.
According to the unsealed complaint, Santana and Deleon were excited at the prospect of becoming martyrs for Islam.
"I wanna do C-4s if I could put one of these trucks right here with my, with that. Just drive into, like, the baddest military base," Santana said, according to the complaint.
Gojali was allowed to join the team in September after he made it clear he had no qualms about killing in the name of jihad.
"I watch videos on the Internet, and I see what they are doing to our brothers and sisters. … It makes me cry, and it gets like I'm, like, so angered with them," Gojali said, according to the complaint.
A preliminary hearing is set for early December. If convicted, the men could face a maximum of 15 years in federal prison.
