Terrorists in the Hood

Florida Doctor Convicted in Terrorism Case

A Florida doctor was convicted Monday of providing material support to terrorists by agreeing to treat injured al-Qaida fighters so they could return to Iraq to battle American[] [forces].

Dr. Rafiq Abdus Sabir, 52, was convicted in federal court in Manhattan after a three-week trial that featured testimony by him and Ali Soufan, an FBI agent who posed as an al-Qaida recruiter in a sting operation that led to four [terrorism] arrests.

That's the sort of case that should help with the placement of various aspects of the GWOT -- e.g., increased use of FISA warrants, Patriot Act, warrantless surveillance, etc. -- into their rightful perspectives.

Unless, of course, you're literally on drugs.

Doncha just love this spin put on the story by the AP:

The verdict came after jurors heard audio tapes of a May 2005 ceremony in a Bronx apartment in which Sabir and his best friend, Tariq Shah, a martial arts expert and jazz musician, pledged loyalty to al-Qaida and, the government alleged, Osama bin Laden

He's "alleged" to have pledged loyalty?

It was on tape, he pled quilty! Asshats!

The question to be asked now is just who is watching those "supporters" he told to remain strong?

warrantless surveillance?

Jayson, I must have missed that part of the operation. Please point out to us the domestic to international call made and intercepted by the NSA?

This was a sting operation, you know good old fashion police work. The kind of stuff that works just fine without the Patriot Act.

increased use of FISA warrants, Patriot Act, warrantless surveillance, etc. -- into their rightful perspectives.

Yep, it sure does. It demonstrates that they are unnecessary and almost completely useless for stopping terrorism. Did you think they were involved in this case?

Please point out to us the domestic to international call made and intercepted by the NSA?

Can you point to the reverse?

Why ask a question you or the author of the post can't possibly answer without having been in court?

Oh, wait I know.

You ain't got nothing else.

LOL! So, marc, in the absence of any evidence or even mere suggestion that the NSA was involved in this operation, your position is that it's reasonable to assume that it was, and it's up to those not inventing new facts to insert into the story to point to evidence that it wasn't. Is that really your position?

Well, I say that this story should help with the placement of talking undercover tigers into their rightful perspectives. And since you haven't been in court, then you have no basis for disputing that. And if you do, then it's because you ain't got nothing else. Either that or you're literally on drugs.

This is pure comedy gold.

Ah... excuse me!

I didn't inject ANY refs to the NSA if you're looking for potential drug use point your misguided accusatory finger as BarneyGRUUBLE ("warrantless surveillance?").

Not to mention you quoting the author and his ref to the NSA program.

Ever think of trying the fiction genre of the book writing trade?

"Warrantless surveillance" ... (Below threshold)

"Warrantless surveillance" was suggested by the author. It was an assertion that, when challenged, you defended. You can read it up above... c'mon, give it a try.

On the topic of book writing genres, perhaps you should try "revisionist history".

when challenged, you defended.

OK, let's assumne I'm dumb as a box of Kerry for pres. bumper stickers, (and I KNOW you believe that) but for arguments sake quote the passage where I defended the author or the NSA?

Give up? Can't find that quote yet?

Well, it's not like I don't have some sympathy for your situation. Here go debate Boozy Suzy.

Maybe you will have better luck winning something over there.

But my cash is on Suzy.

FBI entraps doctor.
An undercover FBI agent got a Florida doctor to agree to treat Al Qaeda fighters who came to the US.

Now the doctor will going to prison instead of curing the sick in Florida.

Sorry I didn't stick around to watch you waiting for me, marc. But here you go...

increased use of FISA warrants, Patriot Act, warrantless surveillance, etc.

"warrantless surveillance" = NSA. Or don't you pay attention?

Someone isn't "paying attention."

However you didn't provide anything close to a quote authored by me that "defended" anything in the authors post. You failed, miserably.

Go back and see Boozy Suzie, you've already proven to be an easy opponent here, maybe you can compete with her.

Oh, grow up. Do you have nothing but resorting to word games?

You and Bush are a lot alike. You just declare victory with no substance to back it up, and hope that no one is paying attention to the facts. Although in your case, the facts are recorded up above.

Still flailing away?<... (Below threshold)

Still flailing away?

Where's my quote, you damn sure haven't provided it?

Such a simple task to support your accusation I support the NSA and the evidence you claim is in this thread.

Yet you can't give a simple quote. Come on big guy they "are recorded up above."

Amazing, and you think I should grow up?

Holy Crap! DU erased that thread you posted. It must have been pretty vile considering all the "I hope Cheney is killed by a suicide bomber" threads they leave up.
