Oussama Abdullah Kassir

...Oussama Abdullah Kassir, a/k/a "Abu Abdullah," a/k/a "Abu Khadija," was sentenced

today to life in prison for, among other things, providing material support to al Qaeda.

On May 12, 2009, following a four-week jury trial before Judge, Kassir was found guilty of charges relating to his participation in an effort to establish a jihad training camp in Bly, Oregon, and his operation of several terrorist websites.

Kassir was found guilty of all eleven counts against him, including: conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists; providing material support to terrorists; conspiracy to provide material support to al Qaeda; providing material support to al Qaeda; conspiracy to kill or maim persons overseas; and

distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction...

I can't really say anything new about this. Obviously Kassir has been convicted on evidence from James Ujamma. The only thing I heard while I used to hang around Finsbury was that James Ujamma was giving evidence against Hamza because the Americans were threatening to throw away the key. His wife is apparently here, or was last time I checked which was years ago now.

When Ujamma was released for reasons known to himself he skipped the country rather than staying to give evidence against Hamza, they caught him and have now used his evidence against Kassir. Whether Hamza, Kassir, Aswat or Ujamma are anything to do with Al Qaeda or Osama Bin Laden, no one is telling me.

The 'Bly, Oregon' training camp was named 'Ground Zero', I believe.

Andrew Dismore was asking questions in the HoC in Nov. 2001 about the Bly Oregon facilitators/players (which included ex-military man - Mark Yates).

It's a riddle wrapped in an enigma.
