imam and founder of an Albany mosque arrested

ALBANY, N.Y. — Information found in Iraq led federal investigators to become suspicious of an Albany, N.Y., mosque leader, FOX News has learned. Yassin Muhhiddin Aref's name, telephone number and address were found by U.S. troops last summer in an address book left behind in a vacated terrorist training camp, a U.S. official told FOX News. The book also contained the title given to Aref by Ansar al-Islam, the terrorist group running the camp: "the commander."

Aref, 34, is the Imam of the Masjid As-Salam mosque in Albany, N.Y. He and one other mosque leader were arrested Thursday and charged with helping an undercover informant posing as a weapons dealer who was plotting to buy a shoulder-launched missile that would be used to kill the Pakistani ambassador in New York City.


Hey, maybe this terror stuff is all really connected? http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,128193,00.html

It's pretty hard to prove entrapment, and from what I could tell from reading the article, while they may have a case, I do not believe they could successfully use it for a defense. If you read between the lines, it's pretty clear this so-called "informant" rolled over on these two bastards.
