  •  Imagine his family's shock ... (none)
    no wonder the NYTimes reports they laughed when the charges were read in court today (linked in the diary):

    Abu Ali's family said it has been told he will face unspecified charges in federal court. He is expected to make an appearance in U.S. District Court sometime Tuesday.

    His father Omar Abu Ali, said he got a call from the FBI telling him his son was coming back from Saudi Arabia Monday night.

    "I feel that the truth will come soon," he told CNN. "He will be a free man soon."

    He said his son's return to the United States shows this was never a Saudi case....

    They laughed.  But as the charges sink in, his family and supporters are going to be in an utter state of panic.  Especially with Abu Gonzales in charge of their son's indictment.  

    He may be lucky if he ends up with 20 years like Lindh.
