CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
FBI agents in Charlotte were the first to identify a Oregon teen as a potential terror threat.That came out in testimony Wednesday in the trail of Mohamed Mohamud. The FBI came across him in 2009 while investigating Samir Khan. Khan was the man from Charlotte who edited an online magazine for al-Qaeda. The FBI was tracking Khan -- who was killed in a drone strike with then-al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki -- when they came across Mohamud's emails to him in early 2009. They tracked down Mohamud's IP address to a Portland suburb and identified him.They said Mohamud wanted to blow up a Christmas tree-lighting party in Portland.
