I posted something about this guy when the charges first were publicized (search on Maswood on FR).
Apologies on the date of this one, but I'm posting again because there are much newer updates, but I can't post them on Free Republic.
If you are interested in this case, do a Google "News" search using the term "Maswood". For instance, there is a new article titled "Donor Fears Hurt Muslim Charities" in the Hartford Courant today. The online version is unbelievable if you know what I mean.
old story rewritten in unpostable Hartford Courant ping
"Maswood once strongly supported President George W. Bush and still keeps in his living room a photograph of the president. He also has a photo of his preteen daughter meeting Vice President Dick Cheney and has donated to several Republican campaigns.
Very interesting. He may wish to call in his chips at some point. Maybe the Bush administration can help him out of this little jam.
Please Freepmail me if you want on or off my infrequent Connecticut ping list.
"I come from a very oppressive country," said Maswood's wife, Awatef, who was born in Tunisia and became a U.S. citizen in 2000. "I used to come back to the U.S. and feel relief. I'm home. This is a free country. What kind of America is this?"
The kind eight years of the Rat party in the white house allowed Bin Laden to create on September 11, 2001.
