Local Somalis Doubt Fed's Terror Support Case Against Four San Diegans

I, being a longtime San Diego resident of Somali origin, have been following this story closely.I personal knew Issa Doreh for more than a decade and I am confused as to how he is has been involved in all this. Doreh was a man who loved the western education system and he would advice all the Somali youth to benefit the opportunity which they were given. He himself finished several degrees from what I remembered, one was in computer science from SDSU and the other was from somewhere else.
I remember how Mr. Doreh once told me after 9/11 terrorist attacks that such an act was not permitted in islam and that whoever was behind it was working for the devil. I have witnessed him several other times where he condemned extremism. So, I am little confused about his arrest, I hope that he gets a fair trail.

With that said, I also applaud the government for their long investigation which was started in 2007; this definitely shows that they were doing their homework and that nothing was rushed. In addition to this, I would also like to thank them for reaching out to the Somali community leaders.
