From Yahoo! Groups: dc-terror, Probe Investigates Charge DC School Official Recruiting Jihadists:
Discusses how the "wall" between intelligence and criminal investigation enabled Kifah Wael Jayyousi to be hired to manage facilities for DC public officials, when the Federal government had been tracking him for years on account of ties to terrorism. Also discusses Jayyousi's ties to Adham Amin Hassoun, who might have recruited Jose Padilla, the "dirty bomb" suspect:
"A federal judge in South Carolina last month ordered that Padilla be either charged or released - a decision that Justice is appealing. One way out of their box, law-enforcement officials tell NEWSWEEK, is to somehow get Hassoun, or now possibly even Jayyousi, to plead guilty and then use their testimony as grounds to finally bring criminal charges against Padilla."
From Jihad Watch, CAIR conference to tackle Islamophobia, anti-Americanism:
"Among the luminaries speaking is the infamous Muzammil H. Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of North America. A Harvard educated, highly influential imam who serves on several boards of national Muslim groups, he was the Muslim representative at the prayer service for victims of 9/11 at the National Cathedral. He has visited with President Bush in the White House, where he assured the President that the Muslim community "unanimously condemns" the terrorist acts of 9/11."
The conference will be held May 13-15, 2005 at the Sheraton Premiere Hotel, 8661 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA.
