Usama Kassir, a swedish citizen, is going on trial in new york

he is accused of being one of a number of people who in 1999 were going to biuld a training camp for "terrorists" outside bly, oregon

the accusations were tried in sweden in 2004 & the charges dropped

american authorities demanded that Usama Kassir be extradited, but it wasn't until the fall of 2005 that he was taken by the f.b.i during a touchdown in prague. in 2007 czechia handed him over to the u.s

even though the "crime" he is accused of was supposedly committed in oregon he is being sentenced (for he will be found guilty, of course) in new york which is still so heavily marked by terror

this will not pass in silence
