Hawash charged

CNN.com – Oregon man charged with conspiracy to levy war against U.S. – Apr. 28, 2003

In a 41-page affidavit filed along with a criminal complaint in U.S. District Court in Portland, an FBI agent attached to the joint terrorism task force alleged that Hawash had traveled to China in an attempt to gain entrance into Afghanistan to fight U.S. forces after September 11, 2001.
When Hawash was unable to enter Afghanistan, he returned to the United States and, when questioned, told officials he had traveled to China for business purposes, the agent said.

I wrote about this earlier this month, so figured it was only fitting to announce the other shoe dropping. Interestingly, supporters held a rally this morning for Hawash as scheduled. Wonder what they make of the claims he was trying to enter Afghanistan?
