Is There an ACLU Lawyer in the House?

Here we go... which one of you studs from Columbia or NYU want to take this one on eh? (As if any of them brainiacs have the smarts to read my blog)

I got the perfect plan...

Let's set up a competition between an ACLU Lawyer from Columbia vs. an ACLU Lawyer from NYU. I've got the perfect case and it's hot off the wires.

I'm sure this kid's phone is ringing off the hook...
Student Arrested After Pilot Uniform Found
The Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A university student from Egypt was ordered held without bond after prosecutors said they found a pilot's uniform, chart of Memphis International Airport and a DVD titled "How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act" in his apartment.

The FBI is investigating whether Mahmoud Maawad, 29, had any connection to terrorists. He is awaiting trial on charges of wire fraud and fraudulent use of a Social Security number.

Maawad, who is in the United States illegally, told the judge during a hearing Thursday that he is studying science and economics at the University of Memphis.

"My school is everything. I stay in this country for seven years; I stay for the school," he said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Parker said Thursday that the airport-related items were found during a Sept. 9 search.

"The specific facts and circumstances are scary," Parker said.

U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Thomas Anderson ruled that Maawad be held without bond.

"It is hard for the court to understand why he has a large concentration of those (aviation) items, and nothing else to indicate Mr. Maawad plans to stay in the community," Anderson said.

Maawad had ordered $3,000 in aviation materials, including DVDs titled "Ups and Downs of Takeoffs and Landings," "Airplane Talk," "Mental Math for Pilots" and "Mastering GPS Flying," FBI agent Thad Gulczynski testified.

The company reported Maawad to authorities when he didn't pay for $2,500 of merchandise it had delivered, Gulczynski said.
Does it get any better than this?

Who wants to be the hero?
C'mon... be the next reality show star!

Just think of all the Press you'll get!! PERFECT!

I'm sure it will not be long before the ACLU gets involved with this.

I can see it already... his constitutional right to DVDs and costumes. I bet the guy will walk away with a green card and his own jet by the time ACLU finishes with these investigators.

the well-written
