Unidentified teens walk past the home of the family of Arifeen David Gojali in Pomona, Calif., on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012. Three California men excited at the prospect of training in Afghanistan to become terrorists prepared, authorities say, by simulating combat with paint ball rifles, wiping their Facebook profiles of any Islamic references and concocting cover stories. Family members told The Associated Press they were shocked by Gojali’s arrest, but added that the unemployed Gojali had drifted away from the family in the recent months.
