Radical Website Blogger Responds to WBTV

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A 22-year old in north Charlotte running a radical website promoting Al-Qaeda, is responding to our Monday night story.

Samir Khan, is using his blog to criticize WBTV. He writes that WBTV is spreading lies about his website.

He claims to have never before seen the video footage we found in attached links to his site.

He calls the reporting "useless" and a way to try and get ratings.

He also sends two posts directly to Anchor Molly Grantham.  Both are videos of a cleric talking about how women would love to be Muslim, how women make good mothers and how women are respected in the Muslim religion.

Two pictures posted on Samir Khan's website revolution.muslimpad.com jump out at you.

The first... American soldiers heading to Iraq with the caption, "Here they come."

Second photo?

Flag-draped coffins, with the words, "And here they go."

Opinionated commentary like that -- and explosive videos -- leave no doubt this 22-year old publicly hates America.

We found Khan working at Convergys Corporation in its south Charlotte office.

Convergys is a company other companies hire to take care of customer care, H-R and billing services.

Sounds pretty basic until you hear this:

In March, a $2.5 Billion, 10-year deal was signed between nine companies and our federal government.

Convergys is one of those nine.

The contract is in the case of a national emergency... another Hurricane Katrina or... say... a terrorist attack.

Those nine companies, including Convergys, will help the federal government set up quick call centers and mobilize communication.

Over the phone, a Convergys spokeswoman doesn't say much when we ask about her company's contract with the government.

"That I can't comment on," says Amy Williams, from its Cincinnati-headquarters.

Khan worked at the McAlpine Park location. Worked.

Days after we confront him in the parking lot, his car stops showing up. Williams confirms he's no longer an employee.

"He had no access to customer claim information," she says. But Williams won't say what he did, how long he worked there of if he was fired or quit.

"That's not information we provide on any employee," she says.

After our story aired Monday night -- Convergys followed up Tuesday with an email.

Khan didn't work on a government program, the statement reads... no government contract work is done at its Charlotte facility... and Khan had no access to client or governmental data during his brief employment.

They still don't tell us what Khan's job was or why he's no longer working with them.

We go back to his house to ask what he did while at Convergys, and are told by a woman who answers the door to leave the property.

So questions still remain as to what exactly Khan, who is extremely tech-savvy, did at Convergys, and why he is no longer with them.
