77-year-old convicted of giving financial support to Taliban
An elderly Muslim cleric was convicted Monday of funneling thousands of dollars to support the Pakistani Taliban terror organization, which is blamed for suicide bombings and other attacks that have killed both Americans and Pakistanis.
The jury returned its verdict after the two-month trial of Hafiz Khan, the 77-year-old imam at a downtown Miami mosque. Khan was found guilty of all four charges: two conspiracy counts and two counts of providing material support to terrorists.
"Despite being an imam, or spiritual leader, Hafiz Khan was by no means a man of peace," said U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer, whose office prosecuted the case. "Instead, he acted with others to support terrorists to further acts of murder, kidnapping and maiming."

(Fighting Obama without Boehner & McConnell is like going deer hunting without your accordion)
"Khan was found guilty of all four charges: two conspiracy counts and two counts of providing material support to terrorists....Each charge carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence..."
It is the Will of Allah!

The prosecutor’s statement looks like a CYA to keep himself from getting assassinated later. Thanks nickcarraway.
