Where did Rahatal Ashikim Khan and Michael Todd Wolfe (Muslim name, as is characteristic of the mainstream media, not given) learn about Islam? Were they active in their local mosque? Does anyone know? Does anyone care?

An update on this story. “Grand jury indicts Austin-area men accused of terrorism,” by Andrew McLemore, Austin American-Statesman, June 21, 2014:

Two Austin-area men arrested on charges of attempting to aid terrorist groups were indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
 Round Rock resident Rahatul Ashikim Khan and Austin resident Michael Todd Wolfe were scheduled to appear before a federal court in Austin on Friday, but the trial date was reset for June 30.
 The two men, both 23 and accused of recruiting jihadi fighters through an online chatroom, appeared in court Wednesday and were respectful while answering questions from U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Lane.
 Khan, a University of Texas student, is charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and Wolfe is charged with attempting to provide material support to terrorists, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
 The indictment accuses Khan of trying to recruit others to participate in terrorist activities overseas and accuses Wolfe of planning to travel to the Middle East and join radical groups engaged in armed conflict in Syria.
 Both men have pleaded not guilty to the charges and waived formal arraignment, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. They each face up to 15 years in prison and a maximum $250,000 fine if convicted.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
