Descent Into Jihad -- The Ottawa Citizen

Momin Khawaja remained silent throughout his 41/2-year-long case, but dozens of e-mails he wrote prior to his arrest reveal how and why this quiet Canadian, with a nice family from a nice Ottawa suburb, dedicated his life to terrorism and destroying the West.
