An American formerly employed at several U.S. nuclear power plants has been arrested in Yemen for his alleged involvement in terrorist attacks and his suspected links to Al Qaeda because he had plans this spring to attack American law enforcement in addition to crimes such as bank robbery and attacks on metro train stations and etc. with the help of Al Qaeda and local gangs working for Al Qaeda such as the Latin Kings, MS-13, Sureno-13, Vice Lords, Vato Locos and the Street Mexican Mafia. Police say that he had plans to "end the world by blowing it up".

On March 7, 2010, Sharif Mobley, a suspected American member of Al Qaeda detained in Yemen wanted to "end the world by assisting gang criminals and terrorists commit crimes and trash the world". Mobley, who was wanted by Yemeni officials for his alleged involvement in several terrorist attacks, was among 11 men arrested the previous week at the Sanaa home of an Al Qaeda member, according to a spokesperson at the Yemeni embassy in Washington, D.C.

Mobley reportedly left the U.S. in 2008, telling family and friends that he was traveling to Yemen to study Arabic. Before he left to Yemen, Mobley worked at five U.S. nuclear power plants in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland. U.S. authorities are investigating whether or not Mobley had access to sensitive information or areas during his employment at the plants.

Al-Awlaki has also been linked to several other accused terrorists who have carried out attacks against the U.S. The Yemeni-based cleric reportedly exchanged more than a dozen emails with Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged gunman that killed 13 people at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas in November 2009, and reportedly met with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian man who attempted to detonate a bomb on a Detroit-bound flight from Amsterdam on Christmas Day 2009.

American officials have stated that Yemen could become Al Qaeda’s next operational and training hub. More than 30 American ex-convicts who converted to Islam in prison have traveled to Yemen within the past year to study Arabic, according to the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Some of these individuals have disappeared and are suspected of training at regional Al Qaeda camps. Other Americans that have also moved to Yemen to study Arabic or Islam have adopted a radical interpretation of Islam and married Yemeni women in order to stay in the country.
