    ... Ahmed Abassi, a Tunisian citizen who previously lived in Canada, has been charged with two counts of knowingly making false statements in an application to immigration authorities for a green card and work visa, in order to facilitate an act of international terrorism. "As alleged, Mr. Abassi came to the United States to pursue terrorist activity and support others in the same shameful pursuit. What Mr. Abassi didn't know was that one of his associates, privy to the details of his plan, was an undercover FBI agent," said FBI assistant director-in-charge George Venizelos in a statement. Authorities arrested Abassi...

    TRIPOLI, Lebanon — Deep in a violent and lawless slum just north of this coastal city, 12 men whose faces were shrouded by scarves drilled with Kalashnikovs. In unison, they lunged in one direction, turned and lunged in another. “Allah-u akbar,” the men shouted in praise to God as they fired their machine guns into a wall. The men belong to a new militant Islamic organization called Fatah al Islam, whose leader, a fugitive Palestinian named Shakir al-Abssi, has set up operations in a refugee camp here where he trains fighters and spreads the ideology of Al Qaeda. He has...

    ... The U.S. military today is eating its seed corn. If we can't afford to plan for tomorrow, then what happens when tomorrow comes? This is a sobering question to ask, in light of recent events. For example, Philippine military forces began to pull out of Iraq after bowing to the demands of terrorists who had kidnapped a Philippine citizen and threatened to kill him. Meanwhile, ominous clouds continue to gather over Iran, right next door to Iraq. Hassan Abassi, head of the Revolutionary Guards' Center for Doctrinaire Affairs of National Security outside Iran's Borders, has made no secret of...

    A British Taliban fighter in custody in Guantánamo Bay provided U.S. investigators a crucial link between a group of Seattle militant Muslims and members of a radical mosque in London, federal sources say. The prisoner, Feroz Abbassi, told CIA interrogators earlier this year that he had traveled to Afghanistan from London in 2000 with an American — a Muslim convert now suspected of being a key figure in the Seattle group suspected of supporting the al-Qaida terrorist network. Abbassi said he had met the man at the North London Central Mosque, a major recruiting ground for Islamic terrorists. That mosque...
