Another 9/11 conviction:
Spanish court today convicted a Syrian man of conspiring to commit the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States, and found 17 other men guilty of belonging to or aiding a Spanish cell of Al Qaeda under his command.
Imad Eddin Barakat Yarkas, 41, also known as Abu Dahdah, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for helping to plan the attacks and to 12 years for leading the cell, which was based in Madrid.
Good, I guess.
You know, if you’re going to adopt a nom de guerre, couldn’t you come up with something better than “Abu Dahdah”?
And cultural sensibilities aside, that just sounds silly.
Be nice if we could get a conviction or two, wouldn’t it?
And, circle, I think he went with that because “Abu Doodah Dey” was already taken.
I feel safer already.
What’s a court? Patriot Act my ass.
Isn’t it about time for a post on Cindy Sheehan?
Wait, but the W.o.T. is NOT a law enforcement campaign, it is a militrary campaign. We are wasting resources fighting them this way and it show us as being weak law abiding people.
Why is a Syrian being tried for an attack on America in Spain?
Oh, because the rest of the civilized world wants him to get a real trial.
Perhaps the Spaniards are still a little peeved at Al Qaeda, for their actions in Madrid on 3/11. Maybe they like justice to come to murderous criminals whenever possible.
Wow, they know that Al-Queda was behind 3/11? Funny, there seems to be no evidence proving that link.
But you seem to ignore my question, that being, why did Spain try an Al-Queda leader for crimes against the US? Why not hand him over to the US?
My theory is that they don’t trust the US with him.
Sheehan was arrested! And yet we get silence from the Sheehan bashing central site!
Could it be you’ve figured out that Cindy just reached Nirvanna?
And do you think shipping her off to Gitmo is the answer?
Enquiring minds (those not deluded with the kool aide) wanna know!
One down another million or so to go.
Well, seeing as how they took credit for it last week, I’d kind of think that you would cut the tin-foil hat crap.
Ah yes, once again a proof followed with links and evidence. Thanks demimondian!
Are you saying al-Qaeda was framed? I find it hard to believe the man was convicted with absolutely no evidence.
Davebo comes out swinging like a third grader with tourettes
Isn’t it about time for a post on Cindy Sheehan?”
Why? Is she calling for this guy to be freed already?
Abu Dahdah? Lol Abu means father. He’s father Dahdah or Daddy Dahdah. Whichever makes you laugh hardest.
