Federal officials tell Newsweek that they doubt Mayfield has been innocently swept up in a case of international intrigue. Mayfield married an Egyptian woman, converted to Islam 16 years ago and was active in a local Oregon mosque whose members had openly protested government antiterror policies. But it was another thing that leapt out at investigators: in 2002, Mayfield had volunteered to provide legal help for Jeffrey Battle, one of the ringleaders of the Portland Seven -- a group of local jihadists who had flown to Asia after 9/11 in an unsuccessful effort to fight with the Taliban. "If that print had matched with some little old lady in Peoria, that would be one thing," says a U.S. official. "But what are the odds it would be somebody with this background?"

This is 2 hrs. old from NEWSWEEK. "Absolutely incontrovertible match."!

Yeh, I just read that, too.

I bet they're checking the postal records to see what's been coming and going (and a few other million things).

He's supposed to be in Court Tuesday so we should know more after that.
