GA: "Immigrant" Guilty of Terrorism
This poor wee innocent, to hear his fans tell it, made a closing statement to the court consisting of a lecture about Islam.
"Ahmed, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Pakistan, waived his right to a jury trial so he could deliver his own closing argument Thursday.
He talked about his Muslim faith instead of addressing the evidence against him.
"I just want to convey the message of God," Ahmed said.
He cited verses and prayers from the Quran and spent a great deal of time comparing his religion to the Christian faith, noting that both worship the same God.
According to Martin, Ahmed "is resigned to what's going to happen and was happy that he could make the statement that he made. That was very important to him."
Prosecutors contend that Ahmed and Sadequee traveled from Atlanta to Canada in March 2005 and discussed potential attacks in the United States with three other men they met online."
