Terror suspect accused of trying to hit FBI agent

Just a terrorist suspect. No mention of his affiliations, what ideology he espouses or his religion, just that he has contacted some mysterious FTO, Foreign Terrorist Organization. Maybe he's a Quaker, they shape their beards like this guy. But then again so do the Egyptian "religious police".

Even more important than the arrest of this "suspected" Muslim terrorist, is the fact that the newspaper refuses to name the enemy. The paper would have no trouble naming a Christian's religion if he were suspected of terrorism. Not saying the name of the Devil will not protect you from him.


Terror suspect accused of trying to hit FBI agent


DETROIT -- A federal judge in Michigan has ordered a man suspected of supporting terrorist groups held on allegations he tried to crash into the car of an FBI agent who was following him as part of heightened security for the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Reed S. Berry, 26, of St. Joseph was under surveillance because of his suspected terrorist links, according to an FBI affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids.

The government has said the links include Internet communication with one or more groups involved in international terrorism.

Defense lawyer Elias Muawad said what the government has labeled terrorist links in court filings appear to be online speech protected by the First Amendment. He also said his client, Berry, has been upset about being under investigation for months, subject to searches and barred from air travel.

"He was feeling like a caged person," Muawad told The Associated Press on Sunday.

According to the Sept. 23 complaint that charged Berry with assaulting a federal officer, the FBI executed a search warrant March 9 seeking evidence linking Berry to foreign terrorist groups.
