Is Lotfi Raissi another Wen Ho Lee? Raissi is an Algerian pilot who lives in Britain, and who was accused by the US of training the 9/11 hijackers. The British government held hm on those grounds for the past five months, but he was released on bail after the terrorism charges against him were dropped. The US is still charging him lying on an application for a US pilot’s license because he failed to disclose a tennis injury on the application (in the Wen Ho Lee case, Lee plead guilty to some insignificant charge in return for all the real charges being dropped as well). Maybe Raissi really did train the terrorists, but the Brits seemed perfectly willing to hold him as long as we maintained that he was a terrorist, so I have to believe that the FBI knows he’s innocent.
