"The Justice Department and some independent terrorism investigators have long accused Mr. Al-Arian...." "Independent terrorism investigators"? They now have the power to accuse, convict, and sentence in the US (in)justice system? And how does the New York Times determine they independence? Is this like the Israeli think tank that was called "independent" by the New York Times when the Israeli newspapers themselves pointed out its direct links to the Israeli military/intelligence apparatus? Really, I read the New York Times just as a citizen in North Korea reads the official daily newspaper. You want to know what the powers that be are up to.
