Mike Hawash - the charges

According to CNET, Mike Hawash was associating with known terrorists and joining the Taliban just after the 9/11 attacks.

However, the prosecuting and defense lawyers are under a gag order. While I have no sympathy, empathy, or care for any terrorist, Mr. Hawash still needs to be proven that he is one. Gag orders, material witness detainment, and little or no communication from the authorities doesn't catch bad guys or prevent terrorism.

We're not children (those of us who can vote, anyway). We are watching.
