YouTube terror video gets Florida student 15 years

Tampa (FL) – An engineering student from Egypt at the University of South Florida plead guilty and was sentenced to 15 years after a 12-minute video in Arabic was discovered on his notebook back in August, 2007.

The video explaind how to convert a remote control from a toy car purchased at Wal Mart into a remote bomb detonator. It ultimately led authorities to YouTube where the video had been uploaded earlier and viewed hundreds of times.

According to court documents obtained by Wired.com, he reports the information was to be used “against those who fight for the United States,” and that he considers the United States to be a “vile nation.”
