    SNIPPET: "Two U.S. planes have flown radical Muslim preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other suspected terrorists to the United States, hours after Britain's High Court cleared the way for their extradition.

The five had raised legal questions about human rights and prison conditions they expected to face in the United States. In rejecting the appeals, the British court cited an “overwhelming public interest” in seeing the extraditions carried out. Hamza is wanted on U.S. charges that include...

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A federal judge has thrown out a former Navy sailor's conviction on providing support to terrorists. But upheld Wednesday was Hassan Abu Jihaad's (hah-SAHN' AH'-boo zhee-HAHD) conviction for disclosing classified information. Prosecutors say they are reviewing the ruling. Abu-Jihaad's conviction was hailed last year by top national security officials and federal investigators as a model of cooperation among government agencies. Abu-Jihaad was a signalman aboard the USS Benfold. He was accused of passing along information a drawing of the formation the group would use to pass through the dangerous Strait of Hormuz

    March 7, 2007 — A former U.S. Navy sailor has been charged with allegedly passing military secrets about U.S. Navy movements through waters in the Middle East to al Qaeda-related Web sites during the spring of 2001, just months after the USS Cole was attacked in Yemen.

    A 30-year-old British computer expert, accused of running several Web sites to promote holy war and funnel money to terrorist organizations, was in a London court yesterday to fight a U.S. extradition request. Extradition papers filed in the case said that when Mr. Ahmad was arrested Aug. 5, he possessed classified documents describing movements of a U.S. Navy battle group in the Middle East — and instructions on how best to attack those vessels with rocket-propelled grenades from small boats. The papers said he also had communications with a U.S. Navy enlistee aboard the USS Benfold, a guided missile destroyer,...
