Doctor Guilty Of Pledging Aid to Qaeda

From Joseph Goldstein of the New York Sun

A Columbia University-educated doctor who was taped swearing loyalty to Al Qaeda was found guilty by a jury yesterday of conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist organization. Rafiq Sabir, 52, faces up to 30 years in prison. In 2005 an FBI undercover agent told Sabir that he would be a valuable asset for Al Qaeda if he could move around Saudi Arabia (where he had a contract with a local hospital) giving medical aid to mujahedeen who are hurt.
