U.S. Muslim Activist Makes Plea Deal; Documents Expected to Implicate Libya (washingtonpost.com)
"Abdurahman Alamoudi has agreed to admit guilt to three counts, including one related to the mysterious movement of $340,000 he allegedly received in a London hotel room from a charity funded by the Libyan government, sources familiar with the case said yesterday. The other two counts cover tax violations and lies on his immigration forms, the sources said. ...
His arrest last September shook the U.S. Muslim community and reverberated through Washington's political elite. As leader of the American Muslim Council, Alamoudi met on occasion with senior Clinton and Bush administration officials. He also helped found the Pentagon's Muslim chaplain program and is particularly well known in the Muslim community of Northern Virginia, where he helped run a number of charities and political groups."
As expected, the Post is back-pedaling Alamoudi's relationship with the Clinton Administration. The article The Clintons, Abdurahman Alamoudi, and the Myth of "Moderate" Islam describes the close relationship Alamoudi had with the Clintons, saying that he had "repeated high-level contacts with the Clinton White House in late 1995 and early 1996."
