FBI Agent to Testify at Conspiracy Trial

A top FBI counterterrorism agent will testify that the actions of four men accused of training and arming terrorists were consistent with the activities of terrorist cells. At a hearing Friday, Paul George was certified by U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen to testify as an expert witness when the men go to trial March 18. The men each are charged with conspiracy to provide material support or resources to terrorists. They deny the charge. The men are accused of forming “a covert underground support unit” and a “sleeper” operational combat cell for a radical Islamic movement. They are accused of gathering information and false identification and of helping to plan violent acts. George told Rosen that 105 audiotapes, a videotape and papers seized in a September 2001 raid on a Detroit apartment showed signs of terrorist cell activity. He said the audiotapes were essentially pep talks, meant to keep recruits focused on their mission. Full Story
