"Saudi man ordered to leave U.S. over Texas army base incident... A Saudi national who prompted a four-hour lockdown at a U.S. Army post in Texas in November when he claimed to have a bomb in his car pleaded guilty to two federal charges on Thursday and agreed to leave the country in a deal to avoid more prison time.
U.S. District Judge Fred Biery agreed not to sentence Mutasim Abdul-Aziz Alati, 24, to prison on condition he leave immediately and not return for the rest of his life."
We have people sitting in Guatanamo who have been incarcerated for twelve years without even having charges brought against them. Here's a note about what can happen to people who make terrorist threats:
"Depending on the state and the nature of the threat, a conviction for making a terrorist threat can result in a prison sentence of 40, and even 100 or more years in prison."
And let us not forget that Saudi Arabia was the origin of 15 of the 19 9-11 bombers, as well as the home of their leader, Osama Bin Laden. And after that incident, numerous Saudis were spirited out of the country too. So, somehow, this guy received a penalty of time served (about a month and a half) and was set free after promising not to come back, a guarantee which I am sure must be taken very seriously, coming as it did from a man who threatened to bomb a military base. Am I just a paranoid loon, or does this sound mighty suspicious to you too?
