John: I believe that every individual is entitled to their own opinion, and you're sure entitled to yours. Why do I doubt your name is "John Smith"? Sounds like you were pretty tight to this crew. If "Sam's" in prison, which one? What was he actually convicted for? He cut his deal when caught in St. Louis, Missouri with $700,000. in counterfeit cig stamps, giving the names of those convicted. Georges El-Asmar cut his deal when caught in Michigan giving the same names he knew Sam had given. Then Sam was charged with hiring individuals to set fire to a convenience store, etc. I could never find info on his being tried and convicted. Sam is a criminal of the highest caliber, and if he's in prison, he's where he belongs. He chose to do wrong, he chose to commit crimes and I have no sympathy for him. I only want to see Georges and Fawzi sitting beside him in prison where they too belong. Anyone providing Terrorist groups with funding should be convicted, serve their time and be removed from the U.S.A. You speak of American Terrorist. You may be right, usually they mean harm to a few individuals, not to AMERICA.
