How has ‘extremist Muslim’ compound go unnoticed?

The children were reportedly being trained for terror in New Mexico.

The researchers found dirty diapers, shotgun shells, broken bicycles, and a DVD of the killing techniques in close combat on the rocky New Mexico composition of an “extremist Muslim”, where 11 children were found starving and living in misery.

The makeshift living area is also dotted with diesel cans, household waste and the Qurans, according to reports.

Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, is accused of conducting weapons training at the compound. He was wanted for questioning in the kidnapping of his 3-year-old son, Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, a boy with a serious medical problems. The boy went missing from Georgia in December. His remains were found on the property Monday.

The settlement has arisen on the outskirts of the small Amalia, New Mexico, in the last winter — as authorities searched for the Wahhaj in his son’s kidnapping.

The empty house, without running water or a drainage system, is arranged around a rickety camper that is half sunk in a foul pit and surrounded by 7-foot berms of used tires, parts of adobe wall covered with broken glass, a dirty refrigerator and other odd supplies.

A niche in the form of wooden shipping pallets hides a makeshift bathroom with a toilet seat suspended above a blue plastic bucket. A pair of underpants dangled from a pole above the head.

On the one side of the camper, an underground tunnel big enough to crawl through — led in and out of the compound, which was flanked by a clear goal range. Dozens of empty casings were left behind.

Wahhaj, Luke Morton and three other adults have been accused of training children to use firearms in preparation for the future school shootings. Prosecutors have also charged them with child abuse.

Refuse on the compound included as standard ammunition as well as fake cartridges that are designed to help people safely learn how to load and fire a weapon.

The owner of the property, Jason Badger, on Friday, pricked by a left-behind bag of ammo — fit for rifle, shotgun and pistol — and disposed of the garbage bags holding crumpled on the primary school textbooks, and journals lined with notes in neat italics and the primitive scrawls of children.

“Mr. Das not required to comply with the same restrictions,” spokesman Steve Fullendorf said. “He wants his 15 minutes of fame and that’s fine.”

Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam named Siraj Wahhaj, who was named by prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the New York Post has reported.

Luke Morton is in the courtroom to plead not guilty to child abuse charges in state district court in Taos, New Mexico, Wednesday.
