We now know the FBI believes Islamic extremists used a compound in the New Mexico desert to train kids to attack American schools. But believe it or not, a judge's decision to grant bail means four of the five suspects could soon be released on bond.
Now experts say they fear this is just one of many terrorist training camps operating on United States soil.
"There are so many people in the United States that are part of the jihad ideology, who are doing either fundraising here in the United States, training in the United States to conduct attacks here in the homeland and abroad," said former CIA operative Joseph Assad.
Assad adds extremists exploit laws we have here in the United States, like religious freedom, creating sleeper cells and often operating off the grid until they're ready to strike.
"In the CIA, we used to believe it was by the grace of God and good work by our partners in the FBI that we had stumbled upon things, such as the camp in New Mexico," said Assad.
At that compound, investigators also found 11 emaciated children and the remains of a 3-year-old boy.
An FBI agent testified they were told the 3-year-old died as part of a ritual "to expel demons."
