21 Oct 2008...An American student who became the first person extradited to the United States from Britain on terrorism charges is being subjected to inhumane prison conditions, his lawyer Sean Maher argued on Tuesday ("torture" again). Terror suspect Syed Fahad Hashmi, from Queens NY, is a member of the terrorist group al-Muhajiroun, he had been arrested in London by anti-terrorist police, June 2006 at London's Heathrow airport. Hashmi is being held at the Manhattan Detention Center New York City on four counts of providing material support to Al Qaida, his attorney is Sean Maher. Sean Maher is an attorney at a Midtown Manhattan Law office, Mr. Maher is a member of the National Lawyers Guild.

In 2003, a controversy arose around the case of National Lawyers Guild (NLG) member attorney Lynne Stewart, who was charged with transmitting terrorist communications from prison for Omar Abdel-Rahman, (of course he was also "tortured" ) her former client and mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. Stewart was ultimately convicted of the charges and sentenced to 28 months in federal prison "Lawyer Gets Prison Term in Terrorism Case." The NLG supported Stewart, condemning the charges and the conviction.

Article from National Lawyers Guild (NLG, also "the Guild") embraces every anti-America, anti-capitalist, anti-war, anti-Israel, and "anti-imperialist" cause in vogue among the far left and declares itself "dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system." If this strikes the reader as a slight hint that the Guild’s underlying ideology is not exactly laissez-faire capitalism, that is because it is not. While the Guild is not officially communist or Marxist, its membership, leadership, past internal struggles, and adopted stances consistently point to an organization whose underlying convictions could best be described as such.
Four hours after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, for instance, John Wheat Gibson ("The Guild’s" Texas-Oklahoma Region Co-Vice President) claimed that the U.S. and Israel were most likely responsible for the atrocities of that day. The Guild supports cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal (naming him as one of its National Vice Presidents); Symbionese Liberation Army member Sara Jane Olson; and Leonard Peltier, an American Indian Movement activist who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.

National Lawyers Guild (NLG) National Organizers Ken Cloke and Bernardine Dohrn (Bill Ayers wife) participated in planning sessions, along with NLG staffers such as Dana Biberman, herself becoming a leading Weather Underground member, and Alicia Kaplow. Bernaedine Dohrn, a law school graduate, and Cloke recruited radicalized law students, many of them former SDS members, into the NLG. And a number of these NLG law students, including Eleanor Stein Raskin, joined the terrorist underground as fugitives.
Weather Underground founder and former NLG staffer Bernadine Dohrn stated in 1998 that the Guild "continues to thrive by embracing a huge array of social issues. Bernardine Dohrn (Bil Ayres wife) initially moved to New York City in 1969 to work for the National Lawyers Guild, an organization with which the Weather Underground and the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee worked very closely with in the following years. Weather Underground, a group that employed the anti-personnel bomb-making talents—or lack thereof—had as the lead defense in the case of terrorist Kathy Boudin, prominent "Guild" member Leonard Boudin (her father), Kathy Boudin received a 20-years-to-life sentence for her role in the 1981 Weatherman Nyack, New York Brinks robbery-murders.

The National Lawyers Guild in the old days was frequently identified as a legal front organization for the Communist Party. Sidney Hook described the individuals who founded the NLG as “not being capable of taking any stand that conflicts with the CPUSA (the Communist Party of the USA)”. In the 1950s the National Lawyers Guild refused to purge its members who were members of the Communist Party. Today there are Guild members who are cadres in a variety of communist groups along with a majority of unaffiliated members.

Michele M. Leonhart, Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration joined Michael J. Garcia, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced Friday 10/24/08 the arrest of HAJI JUMA KHAN, an Afghan drug trafficker charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics with intent to support a terrorist organization.

This is the second time the US has arrested Haji Juma Khan, they let him go in Dec. 2001 ! That decision has come back to haunt the U.S. and its allies in Afghanistan. Western intelligence agencies believe that Khan become the kingpin of a heroin-trafficking enterprise that is a principal source of funding for the Taliban and al-Qaeda terrorists.
