Second U.S. woman charged in 'Jihad Jane' case

Federal prosecutors filed terrorism charges Friday against a pregnant American woman, the second woman charged in the so-called Jihad Jane case. The two are accused of plotting online to attend a terror training camp.

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez flew Friday from Ireland to Philadelphia where she was arrested by agents with the joint terrorism task force there. Her 6-year-old son flew with her and was placed in the custody of child protective service workers.

A U.S. official told The Associated Press that Paulin-Ramirez is pregnant. The official was not authorized to discuss that detail and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Maybe we wouldn't have this going on if our schools taught our children national pride and patriotism, rather than about our failures and shortcomings and our constant need to apologize for historical wrongs.
