Smelled a Rat

Former university professor Sami al-Arian has plead guilty to aiding the group Palestinian Jihad. So, he's getting deported.

This case has been going on for a while. I didn't say anything about it earlier for two reasons:

1) I just don't think it's that interesting.

2) A lot of people were piling on to defend the guy against the big, bad government. But, frankly, he just smelled fishy to me. I felt like people who knew as little as I do about the case were rushing to judgment on this one, and it seemed like they might be getting played for suckers.
