Meanwhile, back on the War on Terror…

The US military hands over control of Anbar province to the Iraqis.

Jihad conspiracist Sami Al-Arian has been freed. Ugh:

Palestinian Arab activist, Sami Al-Arian, is free from jail.

His respite from jail may not last long: The former college professor faces a second round of criminal charges in his lengthy legal battle with federal prosecutors.

Al-Arian had been in government custody since he was charged with being the leader in America of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad more than five years ago. He was not convicted at trial, although he subsequently pleaded guilty to lending aid to that group and received a sentence of 57 months. Al-Arian’s incarceration has outlasted that sentence, as prosecutors first used civil contempt charges, then criminal charges, and finally an immigration proceeding to lengthen his stay behind bars.

And ABC reports details of the indictment of suspected al Qaeda bigwig Affia Siddiqui, who was caught with dirty bomb notes and mass casualty plans. Oh, and a liter of cyanide:

Aafia Siddiqui, the alleged Mata Hari of Al Qaeda, was indicted by federal authorities in New York today for allegedly attempting to kill the FBI agents, US soldiers, interpreters and others who attempted to interview her following her July capture in Afghanistan. The seven count indictment detailed her alleged possession of detailed handwritten notes on “dirty bombs,” terrorist recruiting, New York targets, and the relative casualty rates for various weapons of mass destruction.
Aafia Siddiqui, who holds degrees from MIT and Brandeis in biology and neuroscience, allegedly had in her possession when captured by Afghanistan’s National Police on July 17th detailed chemical, biological and radiological weapon information that has been seen only in a handful of terrorist cases, as well as a thumb drive packed with emails, according to the indictment. That information was first reported by ABC News on August 12th. In addition, ABC has learned, the chemicals the indictment alleges Siddiqui had in her possession included about a liter of cyanide.

In Obama world, another master’s degree would have cured Siddiqui’s evil.
