Report: 'JihadJane' Helping FBI

Another twist in the bizarre case of “JihadJane”: After admitting to participating in a terrorist plot and later pleading not guilty, Colleen LaRose is now cooperating with FBI investigation efforts, according to her congressman. LaRose, who used the Internet handle “JihadJane,” allegedly participated in a plot to assassinate a Swedish cartoonist who drew the Prophet Mohammed. Rep. Charles Dent (R-PA), who represents LaRose’s district, said he believes that the indictment was only filed after the FBI learned as much as possible from her and that she has been cooperative. The FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office have declined to comment.
