FBI's case

Here is some of what is in the federal government's arrest affidavit that resulted in the arrest of Hamid Hayat and Umer Hayat, who are accused of lying to the government. The parenthesis signal information taken verbatim from the FBI arrest affidavit: "On Sunday, 05/29/05 at approximately 5:30 am, the Sacramento Division of the FBI was notified, via FBI Headquarters (FBIHQ), that Hamid Hayat, a United States Citizen, was attempting to gain access to the United States via an inbound flight which was scheduled to arrive at San Francisco International Airport at approximately 1:50pm on 05/29/05. During his travel from Korea to the United States, while in flight, it was determined that Hamid was on the "No Fly" list. The plane was immediately diverted, and was ultimately allowed to land in Japan for refueling purposes. While in Japan, Hamid was interviewed by an FBI agent and denied having any connection to terrorism or terrorist activities. Based on Hamid's statements verbal authority was granted to downgrade Hamid from the "No Fly" list to the "Selectee list" so that Hamid could continue his planned travel to the United States. Immigration records indicate that Hamid had departed from the United States on 04/19/03, arriving in Islamabad, Pakistan on 04/21/03. Immigration records also indicate that he departed from Pakistan on 05/27/05, arriving in the United States on 05/29/05."
Interview of Hamid Hayat: "On June 3, 2005, Hamid Hayat was interviewed by special agents of the FBI. During that interview he was specifically asked if he had ever attended any terrorist training camps in Pakistan or in general. He was also asked if he had ever attended a jihadi madrassah (religious school). Hamid stated that he has never attended any type of terrorist training camp or school and is not a jihadi member. He stated that he would never be involved with anything related to terrorism.
"On June 4, 2005 Hamid Hayat voluntarily appeared at a Sacramento office of the FBI to take a polygraph examination that had been requested by the FBI. Hayat, who brought his father with him to the FBI, was informed in advance that the purpose of the polygraph examination was to resolve questions about his possible involvement with terrorist activities. After a brief interview with an FBI agent who showed Hamid some photographs, the polygraph examination was administered and his answers to the relevant questions were found to be indicative of deception. After approximately two more hours of questioning, Hamid admitted that he had, in fact, attended a jihadist training camp in Pakistan. Hamid admitted that he attended a jihadist training camp in Pakistan for approximately 6 months in 2003-2004. Hamid stated that Al-Qaeda supports the camp and provides instructors for the camp. Hamid later confirmed this camp was run by Al-Qaeda. Hamid described the camp as providing structured paramilitary training, including weapons training, explosives training, interior room tactics, hand to hand combat, and strenous exercise. Classroom instruction included ideological rhetoric detailing opposition towards the United States and other non-Muslim countries. Hamid stated that during his weapons training, photos of various high ranking U.S. political figures, including President Bush, would be pasted on their targets. Hamid further stated that he and others at the camp were being trained on how to kill Americans. Hamid stated that although he did not participate in all the available instruction, he was aware the other training was ongoing. Hamid advised that he specifically requested to come to the United States to carry out his Jihadi mission."
The affidavit goes on to detail the interview with Umer Hayat. The arrest affidavit was signed by Special Agent Pedro Tenoch Aguilar.

This has the potential of turning into a media quagmire for the FBI.

What kind of trained terrorist voluntarily talks to the FBI? Why was he allowed to continue the flight?

Something seems fishy here. Right now I suspect this may all be on the up and up only if this father and son duo are the dimmer side of natural selection.

The bright side of this if the story pans out--our enemies are recruiting idiots.

Hi there ##name##,

I read your comments on the home business opportunity. As for me and I believe many average jacks out there, keeping a day job is a necessity. However, up until 7 weeks back I could not face another day without the knowledge that I need to radically change my life inorder to stay in credit..and start dreaming about savings.

The explosive nature of the internt and its supercon artists (experienced net-marketers) is singularly responsible for the 98% failure rate of all newbie related online business failures.

In my view any one wanting to explore their luck online is doomed to failure. The problem with the newbie is not that of access to quality products. No, it is how and where to market the product that has been dumped rather cleverly by the experienced marketer in the newbies hands.

After 4 years of trying almost every strategy without success I can honestly say any one trying their luck on online opportunities needs be ware. Prospecting and marketing costs are way too high for the newbie. Often, as only I have learnt, the newbie puts money into hyped marketing systems that do not deliver the traffic that is required for making sales.

A clever solution to this newbie predicament has been solved by Bill Osterhout's Prosperity Automated System. In here there is no selling, no prospecting, no marketing. No emailling lists here, no advertisements, no phone calls, no no MLMs or chain letters. The PAS system hooks its self to search engines when people search for home business opportunity related information. It sells itself or whatever product you happen to be promoting, closes the sale for you and you get the money. Bill has levelled the playing filled, compelled the newbie to make money or make excuses, while allowing the experienced marketer to feed the system with steroids for enhanced sales.
Everyone closes a sale here within a month or so, getting $3000 per sale. It is here: http://www.MegaWealthy.com/224

I thougth I should help some of your readers who may have given up hope...well now there is!

To your success

Hi all,
In talking about business opportunity, what could be better than a 100% automated system that could allow netters to fold their arms while it tirelessly hunts for prospects.

I happened to pass by, but your business opportunity related contributins truly captured my eye. I happen to have been frustrated and been bled to my last penny by sweet talkers, into buying useless onlines opporunities.

Only after 4 years did I stumble on something that has truly changed my life. Things can nver realy be this easier ...no emailling, no calls, no prospecting or closing your sales because a real millennium software does literally everything for you! The prosperity automated system is in aclass of its own.

I would recommend it for anyone who needs a regular side income but hating MLM's or chain letters or anything like that. The PAS team does all the work and you get the dime. This is my idea of the 21st century business..http://www.MegaWealthy.com/224

Many thnks
