South Park threat suspect pleads guilty

By Paul Cruickshank

A New York man charged with posting online threats against creators of the television show "South Park" plead guilty Thursday in a Virginia federal court, a senior U.S. counter-terrorism official said.

Jesse Curtis Morton was the co-founder of Revolution Muslim, a radical group based in New York City that is supportive of al Qaeda's worldview.

The former Brooklyn resident, also known as Younus Abdullah Mohammad, was taken into U.S. custody in Morocco on October 28, according to court documents.

Morton left the United States in summer of 2010 because he feared arrest after two associates from New Jersey were charged with terrorism offenses in June of that year, according to the official.

    This man is obviously a threat to Mare-ca. Send him to Guantanamo, ASAP.
