nationalsecuritylaw apologies for the unreadable text in that last post

September 2, 2011

I have no idea why the text of my post on United States v. Mubayyid came through garbled on the listserv. My apologies. In any event, a short restatement: the First Circuit has affirmed the jury verdicts convicting Mubayyid and Muntasser on various charges stemming from claims that Care International, Inc., was used in part to steer money to the jihad movement and that the defendants made false statements to investigators, and the Circuit also reversed the trial judges decision to direct an acquittal on a conspiracy count. The opinion is posted here.
