Aid and comfort to the enemy
: Former Intel engineer Maher “Mike” Hawash has pleaded guilty to aiding the Taliban and has agreed to rat on fellow terrorists; he’ll serve a minimum of seven years.
Hmmmm. I seem to remember lots and lots of sites defending him and decrying our bully government for taking him away in handcuffs.
So now he admits he’s guilty.
Hawash pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide services to the Taliban. Prosecutors agreed to drop charges of conspiring to levy war against the United States and conspiring to provide material support for terrorism.
“You and the others in the group were prepared to take up arms, and die as martyrs if necessary, to defend the Taliban. Is this true?” U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones asked Hawash during the hearing.
“Yes, your honor,” Hawash replied.
Anybody have a spare “suspected terrorist” button for Mike?
