I hope this turns out to be the real deal:
Abu Hamza al-Masri, a Muslim cleric suspected of ties to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist organization, was indicted by U.S. authorities for his role in a 1998 hostage-taking plot in Yemen.
But then I saw this line in the story:
A new treaty that took effect Jan. 1 doesn't require the U.S. to provide evidence of al-Masri's crimes, British officials said.
Has the Patriot Act gone international?
