Apr. 30, 2003 | NCIS | USAF | ACLU-RDI 1891
This investigative report was generated by the Criminal Investigative Task Force (CITF) Report of Investigative Activity and the Navy Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). The detainee maintains his innocents and requested to take a polygraph to prove he is telling the truth about not being associated with Al Qaeda or terrorism. He stated that he "had taken care of women and children who were families of Ai Qaeda associates" and that if that were a crime, he would serve a sentence for that. He acknowledged sending 200-300 English Pounds to Al Qaeda training camps where he once trained, but stated he did not know that it was illegal to send money to certain groups considered terrorist, and that he never provided money to groups that targeted the U.S. or UK. The detainee owned a bookstore in the UK and when asked about providing material assistance and support for Terrorism and Al Qaeda he "explained that he sold many different kinds of books, including anti-terrorism books, not Just Al Qaeda based literature."
