Mohamed said in his video that instead of carrying out "martyrdom operations," people can use the remote-controlled explosives and save themselves for the real battles, according to prosecutors.
The laptop was used to upload the video onto YouTube, the court filing said, and it contained a record of an e-mail sent to YouTube in July asking why the submitted video hadn't been posted on the Web site.
Mohamed said he made the video "to assist those persons in Arabic countries to defend themselves against the infidels invading their countries," the FBI said. He said "he considered American troops, and those military forces fighting with the American military, to be invaders of Arab countries."
In the court document, he admits to providing material to support terrorists. He also acknowledges that a YouTube video he produced was to be used in "preparation for or in carrying out the killing of employees of the United States," including uniformed personnel.
His statements constitute admissions that his intention in producing and distributing the recording was to support attempts by terrorists to murder employees of the United States, including members of the uniformed services, while such persons were engaged in or on account of the performance of their official duties.
He stated that his purpose in producing the audio/video recording was to teach "martyrdoms" and "suiciders" how to save themselves so they could continue to fight the invaders. He said that he considered the United States military, and thouse fighting with the United states military in Arab countries to be invaders. He said that he intended the technology demonstrated in his audio/video recording to be used against those who fight for the United States.
