Suburban New Yorker Charged With Being al Qaeda Fighter

Vinas is the latest American allegedly found to have been recruited into an Islasmic jihad. The two best known were John Walker Lindh, a Californian who was found fighting with Taliban when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, and Jose Padilla. Padilla, of New York, was originally accused in 2002 of plotting to detonate a "dirty bomb" in the U.S., but convicted of lesser charges.

Adam Yahiye Gadahn, a Californian, has become something of a spokesman for al Qaeda.

ABC News' Emily Friedman contributed to this report.
