From Jihad Watch: Padilla recruited for al Qaeda jihad, one of Jose Padilla's co-defendants is Kifah Wael Jayyousi, who was formerly chief facilities officer for DC public schools. See our other posts on Jayyousi.
The Federal government is really bungling these terrorism cases, aren't they? The videotape of Pentagon officials' final interrogation of Padilla has gone missing. In the case of Abdulhalim Ashqar, the government failed to convict Ashqar on the more serious charges of a racketeering conspiracy involving laundering and delivering money to Hamas.
PS Did anyone read about Senators Carl Levin (D-MI) and Lindsay Graham (R-SC) expressing concern that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed alleged torture by his captors? Someone please tell the senators that making allegations of torture comes straight out of the Al-Qaeda playbook. Remember spindly terrorist wannabe Ahmed Abu Ali? He also claimed torture.
