(WTNH) – An FBI agent has testified a terrorism suspect from North Carolina told him he had attended terror camps in Connecticut in the late 1980s.

The information was learned at a detention hearing in North Carolina for Daniel Boyd and six other men accused of plotting terrorism abroad.

The FBI agent testified Boyd said he attended camps here and in Pakistan where he learned hand-to-hand combat training.

There is no word on where the alleged terror camps were or are.

I have no evidence to support this, but I’m going to blame Ashford… It doesn’t seem like much goes on out there, so it is perfect conceivable that no one would notice a terror camp.



  1. Having driven through ashford countless times, I agree. It does seem like it’s just sitting there on the side of Rte. 84 quietly plotting something scary.


  2. I was teaching a terrorism test prep course for Kaplan in those days, and a lot of those ghuys came through. In many cases, their mothers drove them to class.
