    Former Navy Sailor Arrested On Terror Charge

    POSTED: 6:48 pm PST March 7, 2007
    UPDATED: 7:00 pm PST March 7, 2007

    WASHINGTON -- A former Navy sailor was arrested Wednesday on charges of releasing classified information that ended up in the hands of a suspected terrorism financier.

    Hassan Abujihaad, 31, of Phoenix, is accused in a case that began in Connecticut and followed a suspected terrorist network across the country and into Europe and the Middle East.

    He was arrested in Phoenix on charges of supporting terrorism with an intent to kill U.S. citizens and transmitting classified information to unauthorized people. Some of Abujihaad's alleged activities included exchanging e-mails with another man suspected in the same case while Abujihaad was on active duty on the USS Benfold, a San Diego-based guided-missile destroyer, according to an affidavit.

    Abujihaad, who is also known as Paul R. Hall, is charged in the same case as Babar Ahmad, a British computer specialist arrested in 2004 and accused of running Web sites to raise money for terrorism. Ahmad is scheduled to be extradited to the U.S. to face trial.

    During a search of Ahmad's computers, investigators discovered files containing classified information about the positions of U.S. Navy ships and discussing their susceptibility to attack.

    Abujihaad, a former enlisted man, exchanged e-mails with Ahmad while on active duty on the USS Benfold, a San Diego-based guided-missile destroyer, in 2000 and 2001, according to an affidavit released Wednesday. He allegedly purchased videos promoting violent jihad, or holy war.

    In those e-mails, Abujihaad discussed naval military briefings and praised those who attacked the USS Cole in 2000, according to the affidavit by FBI Agent David Dillon.

    The documents retrieved from Ahmad show drawings of Navy battle groups and discuss upcoming missions. They also say the battle group could be attacked using small weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades. The ships were never attacked.
    Abujihaad had a secret security clearance that would have allowed him access to that material, according to the affidavit.
    USS Benfold spokesman Lt. Josh Frey said he had no immediate information about Abujihaad's time in the Navy and referred questions to the district attorney's office in Connecticut.

    The investigation was run out of Connecticut because Ahmad allegedly used an Internet service provider there to host one of his fundraising Web sites.

    Ahmad was arrested in 2004 but the case against Abujihaad apparently received a boost in December following the arrest of Derrick Shareef, 22, of Genoa, Ill., near Chicago, who was accused of planning to use hand grenades to attack holiday shoppers at a mall.

    According to the affidavit, Shareef and Abujihaad lived together in 2004 when Ahmad was arrested. After reading news reports of the case, Abujihaad became upset and said, "I think this is about me," Shareef told investigators.

    Authorities then taped a phone conversation between Abujihaad and an informant in which Abujihaad appeared nervous. Though Abujihaad didn't say outright that he was involved in the leak of classified information, the affidavit provided enough evidence for an arrest warrant.

    Abujihaad received an honorable discharge from the Navy in 2002, according to the affidavit.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    He would appear to be a convert judging by his former name.

    These seem to be some of the most radicalised, look at whatshisface the shoe bomber.

    Top spy him, sending e mails from a US ship!
