The downtown protest group Occupy Boston threw its proverbial doors open yesterday, and played host to supporters of accused terrorist Terak Mehanna, who are looking to raise awareness of the Sudbury man’s upcoming trial.A commenter adds:
The Tarek Mehanna Support Committee came to Occupy Boston’s ever-evolving tent city on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to say Mehanna, a Muslim American pharmacist, is a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.
The U.S. government says Mehanna, 28, provided “material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization,” and acted as a “media wing” for al-Qaeda.
Occupy Boston hosted the pro-Mehanna rally, but, officially, the leaderless group doesn’t have a position on the case.
OK, it's time for these wackos to head back and "occupy" mom's basement.Indeed.
I guess we can count Mehanna as one of the 99%.
Tarek Mehanna of Sudbury, a former pharmacist who graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury High School in 2000, goes on trial next month on charges of plotting to kill U.S. troops and government officials. The feds say Mehanna, who was arrested in 2009, had tried to link up with terrorist training camps in the Middle East but was turned away three times.
