Tennessee jihadist's uncle jailed in Jordan

The uncle of the Chattanooga jihadist has been put in police custody in Jordan:
An uncle of the man who killed four Marines and a sailor in attacks on Tennessee military sites has been in custody in Jordan since a day after the attack, a lawyer said Tuesday.

Abed al-Kader Ahmad al-Khateeb told The Associated Press that he was barred from seeing his client and that family members were also prevented from visiting the detainee. Computers and cellphones were taken from the man's home, but he has not been charged with anything, the attorney said.

Al-Khateeb identified his client as Asaad Ibrahim Asaad Haj Ali, a maternal uncle of the Chattanooga attacker, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

A Jordanian government official said Tuesday that some of Abdulazeez's relatives in Jordan were being questioned as part of an investigation into his stay in the kingdom. He would not elaborate on the probe.

The official said he was sure the uncle and "other relevant people" are being questioned, but that he did not know whether he was in detention. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case with the media.

Abdulazeez spent several months in Jordan last year under a mutual agreement with his parents to help him get away from drugs, alcohol and a group of friends his relatives considered a bad influence, according to a person close to his family. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern it would have business repercussions.
What? That part is laughable. He stays away from alcohol and drugs, but not the Koran? Then it's clear they never intended to reshape him into somebody better. It's about as effective as trying to get a standard western racist off of alcohol but not acts of violence and hooliganism against people of different ethnicities. If the ideological part isn't dealt with, then no wonder reformation is doomed to failure.
