Rep. Myrick says U.S. intelligence missed N.C. jihadist

North Carolina's U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick has faulted the U.S. intelligence community for failing to see a connection between a terrorist group and a radical Charlotte blogger now believed to edit an al Qaida magazine in Yemen. Samir Khan, about 24, is a Saudi-born U.S. citizen whose family moved to New York City when he was 7 and to North Carolina in 2004. Khan is believed to be the top editor of "Inspire," an online magazine designed as a recruiting tool for the group al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
