Terror Suspects Arrested in Bowling Green Due in Court

by Dan Modlin, Kentucky Public RadioTwo Iraqi men who are facing terrorism charges are due in court tomorrow (Wednesday) in Bowling Green. The hearing will determine whether the men should be held without bail while their case is pending.The two were indicted on 23 counts in connection with their alleged attempts to provide cash and weapons to al Qaida in Iraq. If convicted of all counts, they could face life in prison.Court filings indicate the men were involved in IED attacks against American soldiers before they came to the United States. They were arrested in Bowling Green in May. Their case has raised a number of questions about how the men were able to enter the U.S. Senator Rand Paul has called for congressional hearings to investigate the matter.
