Federal Prosecutors Say Prayer Carried by California Man Is a Key Part of Case

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A young man charged with lying about attending an al-Qaida-linked terrorist camp was carrying an Arabic prayer in his wallet that federal prosecutors say is significant to their case.


Hamid Hayat, 22, and his father, Umer, 47, are charged with lying to federal investigators about the young man's time at the camp in 2003 and 2004 as part of an investigation in Lodi that also has resulted in the detention on immigration charges of two Muslim religious leaders and one leader's son.

"Lord let us be at their throats, and we ask you to give us refuge from their evil," read the prayer on a slip of paper, prosecutors said in court documents filed late Wednesday.

They said the paper is "relevant to the question of whether Hamid Hayat falsely denied that he had attended a terrorist camp. It corroborates defendant Hamid Hayat's videotaped admission that he, in fact, had attended such a camp."

1. No wonder they can't bring these cases to trial.
They're afraid of the laughter.

2. You nailed it.
The real headline should be "Federal prosecutors run amock costs taxpayers $$$$, again" (ie, civil rights lawsuits).

But of course chimpy's evil flying monkeys couldn't care less about that. Hell, it's not their money, or is it? :(
