Mike Hawash declares his guilt and apologises, saying he has no one to blame but himself and he got caught up in deep feeling after Sept 11.
Amemba him? Computer programmer. Darling of Phillip Adams Late Night Live commentators.
Wonder what is going to happen to this website?
Imbeciles. And so were all his god awful mates.
Hawash, a U.S. citizen for 15 years and apparently a model suburban dad, told the court that he is proud to be an American, recalling his pride when he voting in his first election.
He attributed his crime to religious and emotional confusion in the highly charged times after the hijack attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, but added, "I do not blame anybody but myself."
Judge Robert E. Jones, who last November called Battle and Ford an "insult" to the Muslim faith, noted on Monday that one of his court officers was a U.S. military pilot in Afghanistan when the group tried to enter that country.
"You might have killed my extern sitting right here," Jones said, "That is a very, very serious act."
