Jihad Leader Al-Arian Set for Re-Trial

Although nothing is official, the tea leaves indicate the government is going to retry former University of South Florida professor and Islamic Jihad kingpin Sami Al-Arian on the nine counts that drew a hung jury at his previous trial.

Prosecutors may just be going through the motions of preparing a new trial in order to wring a plea deal out of Al-Arian. But it seems to me that the government’s defeat in his previous trial is a big enough setback in the overall war on terror, and the evidence against Al-Arian is so overwhelming, that prosecutors are willing to actually go forward with a new trial.
