Where there's smoke there's fire

Reader comment on item: Maher Hawash: The Terrorist Next Door

Submitted by Michelle Cohen (United States), Aug 22, 2003 at 08:54

Daniel Pipes writes that "prosecutors detained him without charges for more than a month in an Oregon jail while they pored over the evidence." Then he writes that Hawash "donated more than $10,000 to the Global Relief Foundation, an Islamic charity subsequently closed for financing terrorist groups." Where there's smoke there's fire, but I wonder why the prosecutors could not charge Hawash with associaton with the Global Relief Foundation, a sufficient charge for detaining him.
