FILE - In this undated photo provided by the U.S. Marshals Service, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 23, an Iraqi living as a refugee in Bowling Green, Ky., is shown. The FBI says Shareef Hammadi, an Iraqi national living in Kentucky, bragged about doing "two to three operations a day in Baghdad" while allegedly plotting with an informant to ship weapons and money to Al-Qaida in his home country. In a search warrant application, the FBI quoted 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi as saying he didn't know how many explosives he placed in Iraq because "By God I didn't count them." The search warrant, filed ahead of trial in federal court in Bowling Green, details recorded conversations between Hammadi, Waad Ramadan Alwan and an unidentified confidential source. Hammadi's trial is scheduled for July 30. Alwan pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges in December. (AP Photo/U.S. Marshals Service via The Courier-Journal)
