American jihadist's exiled wife denied U.S. visit by judge

The exiled wife of convicted King Salmon jihadist Paul Rockwood lost her bid Tuesday to return to the United States with her two children to visit her husband in a federal prison. U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline said in an order Tuesday that Nadia Rockwood, a dual U.S. and British citizen, hadn't opposed her sentence of five years probation in England last August for lying about a hit list of opponents of Islam her husband had prepared.
