F.B.I. agents on Thursday seized the passport of a Queens man who came under intense scrutiny last year during the investigation of an airport shuttle bus driver who was charged in a Qaeda bomb plot, law enforcement officials and the mans lawyer said.

He should be in GITMO with the military getting the info from him about exactly where they went and who they met.

CNN is a bit better but not by much
