Man arrested at New Mexico compound is son of imam with possible link to 1993 World Trade Center bombing

The man arrested at a squalid New Mexico compound is the son of a controversial Brooklyn imam who was on a list of people who 'may be alleged as co-conspirators' to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, according to court documents released by prosecutors Wednesday. Siraj Wahhaj, who shares a name with his son who was arrested Saturday, testified as a character witness for Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the notorious 'blind sheikh' who was convicted in 1995 of plotting terror attacks in the U.S.
