LOS ANGELES: A 24-year-old American charged with trying to join Al Qaeda was intercepted by the FBI after using the Internet and Facebook to connect with the terrorist group, a prosecutor said Monday.

Sinh Vinh Ngo Nguyen confessed to federal agents that he had planned to offer himself as a trainer of some 30 Al Qaeda forces to ambush troops in Syria, where he had already spent five months fighting with rebels, Assistant United States (US) Attorney Judith Heinz said.

US District Judge John Walter expressed skepticism with some of the evidence and questioned whether the want-to-be terrorist had any special skills to offer Al Qaeda.

Nguyen has pleaded not guilty to two charges of making a false statement on a passport and attempting to provide material support and resources to a terrorist organisation.

Heinz said a confidential informant and an undercover FBI agent posing as an Al Qaeda recruiter gathered evidence against Nguyen after he reached out on the Internet and on his Facebook page to join the terrorist group.Walter set a Dec 3 trial date and urged the government to quickly analyse the content of eight computers and four cellphones taken from Nguyen’s home.
