4 accused of plotting terror attacks on U.S. bases (Video)

FBI officials in a federal complaint said Kabir introduced Deleon and Santana in 2010 to radical Islamic doctrine and violent extremist materials. The three men followed the essays of the now-deceased al-Qaida leader Anwar Al-Awlaqi, who led terrorist operations in the Arabian Peninsula.

Undercover FBI agents monitoring four Inland terror suspects as they chatted online got them to share their plans to launch a jihadist attack on U.S. military bases in Afghanistan.

Members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested three of the suspects as they were leaving a home in Chino on Friday, Nov. 16. The fourth suspect was arrested Saturday in Afghanistan.

The leader of the foursome appears to be Sohiel Omar Kabir, 34, according to a federal complaint unsealed Monday. Kabir lived in Pomona and served in the Air Force in 2000 and 2001. He was born in Afghanistan but became a U.S. citizen.

Also arrested were Ralph Deleon, 23, an Ontario man who was born in the Philippines; Miguel Alejandro Santana Vidriales, 21, an Upland resident who was born in Mexico and whose U.S. citizenship was pending; and Arifeen David Gojali, 21, of Riverside.
