This guy hails from my alma mater, but IMO, he should be hanged for treason. Looks like the Army is charging him with a few other crimes as well. ---------------------------- Chaplain Arrives for Security Hearing FORT BENNING, Ga. - A Customs agent testified Monday he found "suspicious" documents related to national security in the backpack of a Muslim chaplain accused of mishandling classified documents from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Army Capt. James Yee, 35, is charged with disobeying an order by taking home classified material from the prison and improperly transporting it. He also faces charges of making a false statement, storing pornography on a government computer and adultery a criminal offense under military law. Yee is one of four people at the military's high-security prison to be arrested since September. The preliminary hearing that began Monday will determine if Yee should be court-martialed. Special Agent Sean Rafferty, who works as a Customs inspector in Jacksonville, Fla., said he was tipped off to watch for Yee at the airport there as Yee returned from the Cuba base. He said he searched the backpack Yee carried off the plane. "I found numerous notes of a suspicious nature," Rafferty said during a conference call to the courtroom, being careful not to describe the papers. "It was determined the documents were of interest to national security." Some of the documents mentioned Syria and others dealt with Guantanamo and the U.S. interrogators who work there, Rafferty said. Yee's attorney, Eugene Fidell, said he had not interviewed Rafferty before hearing his testimony and asked the judge for a recess to talk to the man. Yee was first detained on Sept. 10 after the flight to Jacksonville and served 67 days in a Navy brig in Charleston, S.C., before the Army released him. The government then filed the additional charges, including adultery. The first witness to testify Monday was Navy reserve officer Lt. Caren Wallace, who said she had sex with Yee at his quarters in Guantanamo, and at a motel in Orlando, Fla., where he was attending a conference. Photographs of the two were entered into evidence, including one showing Yee and Wallace hugging. Wallace is being given immunity from prosecution for her testimony. Yee was accompanied into the hearing by his parents, wife and 4-year-old daughter, who wore a button saying "Justice for Capt. Yee." Yee's wife, Huda Yee, sat stone-faced during Wallace's testimony. But during a break, she sat on a bench outside the courtroom and dabbed at her eyes with a tissue. Yee's mother comforted her. Yee and his family declined to comment on their way to the hearing, but Fidell told reporters the charges are "ridiculous." "We're hoping these charges that are trivial will go away," Fidell said. Monday's hearing had been delayed for a week after prosecutors discovered the legal staff at Guantanamo had mistakenly released a classified document to the hearing officer and to Yee's attorney. Yee, a 1990 West Point graduate who left the military for four years to study Arabic and Islam in Syria, returned as a chaplain and counseled some of the prison's 660 detainees from more than 40 countries. In another case, Arabic translator Air Force Senior Airman Ahmad I. al-Halabi has pleaded innocent to charges of espionage and aiding the enemy. A civilian interpreter, Ahmad F. Mehalba, was arrested in the Boston airport and charged with lying to federal agents by denying computer discs he was carrying had classified information. And last month, Army Col. Jack Farr was charged with wrongfully transporting classified material and lying to investigators.
