#1 When I first heard about this guy, I wondered how the heck he (almost) got away with it. Now I see. What a maroon. I hope he hangs.

#2 Man the OSI had to be wetting themselves over this one! This is the type of case they dream about! I would not bet that they didn't send other Syrian ex-pats to see what they did. Arabs are SOOOOO dumb when it comes to security. I can see Ahmad grinning to himself with each email he sent out. I bet Mom and Dad move back to the Motherland in protest. Note: Nobody is allowed to leave Syria unless the have a BIG bribe or they are operatives (Active/Sleepers). Not sure of the wealth of the al-Halabi but military service isn't the first choice of an occupation for Arab-Americans immigrants. Should we worry about those in Uniform? You bet! Especially those that come from questionable countries like Syria. I’m not calling for a witch hunt, but lets scrutinize and make sure they aren’t sending info to our enemies. BTW, I am taking bets on this guy getting life, any takers?

#6 Documents that are part of those search warrants say al-Halabi "made statements criticizing United States policy with regard to the detainees and U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East."

Remember the pictures of the cowled detainees on the C-130 ride that ended up on the internet. I expect taht this guy was involved in passing those pictures to the press.

While the two groups have similar goals, they are not directly connected. Both probably use Phewranced as an intermediary.

#10 Re: the baklava, that was "tacked on" to support the "aid and comfort the enemy" charge. The interrogators there are rationing things like desserts as rewards for cooperation ... he deliberately undercut that.
