LOOSE LIPS AND A FIVE BUCK TIP: Get banged up for assisting terrorism

"Hassan Abujihaad, 31, is accused of supporting terrorism by disclosing secret information about the location of Navy ships and the best ways to attack them," wrote Associated Press in March. "Investigators say he provided those secrets, in classified documents, to a suspected terrorism financier."

Sounds bad. The US government has found another terrorist nestled in our midst.

However, readers now know to ask for a close look at such alleged classified documents. They know not to trust the reporting skills of the mainstream media in the coverage of the "global war on terror."

Abujihaad, formerly known as Paul R. Hall, was a sailor on the USN destroyer Benfold in 2001. And Abujihaad bought three videotapes of Islamic fighters in Chechnya and Bosnia from a website vendor who was subsequently arrested in the war on terror.

Honorably discharged from the Navy in 2002, the government silently pursued Abujihaad, finally indicting and arresting him in March of this year.

His crimes?

Being extremely foolish in e-mail and giving a five buck tip to Azzam Publications, a company in London whose owner our government, post 9/11, wanted very badly.
