Ujaama Indicted in Seattle

We began our posting this morning with a question as to whether the Government was intending to make James Ujaama, being held as a material witness in connection with the Sept. 11 attacks, a defendant as well.

The mystery is over. The Government has indicted Ujaama in Seattle. He is charged with "attempting to set up an al Qaeda training camp at a farm in Bly, Ore., where he and others hoped to prepare future terrorists for 'global violent jihad.'"

A second count charges Ujaama with designing Web sites for U.S. Terrorist-designee al-Masri "advocating violent jihad against America."

Ujaama issued a statement Tuesday night saying he is "innocent of any wrongdoing and . . . fully prepared to face my accusers and defend myself in a court of law."
