Al-Arian Finally Heading to Trial?

With the United States Supreme Court refusing to hear Sami Al-Arian's appeal of a ruling interpreting his plea agreement, it looks as though the admitted terror supporter will have to stand trial. Al-Arian has argued that his plea agreement in which he admitted to providing support for Palestinian Islamic Jihad prevented the government from calling him to testify in other terrorism cases. His appeal to the Supreme Court came after lower courts determined he had to testify.

Now it's time to try Al-Arian for contempt. It's a long time coming.

See today's account in The Charlotte Observer.
