Unfortunatly, I cannot find the original article from the AP that the Washington Post uses, to see if it says the word "Muslim," or whether the WP inserted it:
A former Navy sailor was arrested yesterday on suspicion of releasing classified information that ended up in the hands of a Muslim accused of financing terrorism.
Hassan Abujihaad, a 31-year-old convert to Islam, is accused in a case that began in Connecticut and followed a suspected terrorist network across the country and into Europe and the Middle East.
He was arrested in his hometown of Phoenix on charges of supporting terrorism with an intent to kill U.S. citizens and transmitting classified information to unauthorized people.
Were I following the Nutroots standards, I would mention something like "who was president in 2000, and left this problem for the next president?" However, to think Clinton could actually know everything that happens is the hight of absurdity. The fact remains that the followers of the word of the Koran want to infiltrate our society and harm us. If only those on the other side of the aisle would realize that, and put protecting the U.S.A. above socialized healthcare for all and global warming as caused by Man.
Mr. Abujihaad, who is also known as Paul R. Hall, is charged in the same case as Babar Ahmad, a British computer specialist arrested in 2004 and accused of running pro-Taliban Web sites that raise money for terrorism. Mr. Ahmad is scheduled to be extradited to the U.S. to face trial.
During a search of Mr. Ahmad's computers, investigators discovered files containing classified information about the positions of U.S. Navy ships and discussing their susceptibility to attack.
Mr. Abujihaad, a former enlisted man, exchanged e-mails with Mr. Ahmad while on active duty on the USS Benfold, a guided-missile destroyer, in 2000 and 2001, according to an affidavit released yesterday. Authorities say he purchased videos promoting jihad, or holy war.
Two things: one, you can see how the global jihadists are working in concert, and two, wouldn't what Abujihaad did be treason?
Also, sit back and pronounce his name.
The current AP update does make one salient point, without mentioning those disturbing words like Islam and Muslim
Ahmad was arrested in 2004 but the case against Abujihaad apparently received a boost in December following the arrest of Derrick Shareef, 22, of Genoa, Ill., near Chicago, who was accused of planning to use hand grenades to attack holiday shoppers at a mall.
According to the affidavit, Shareef and Abujihaad lived together in 2004 when Ahmad was arrested. After reading news reports of the case, Abujihaad became upset and said, "I think this is about me," Shareef told investigators.
