Army Imam Arrested
This is pretty disturbing. The Army arrested one of their own, when they detained Captain Yousef Yee for possessing classified documents about the Guantanamo detainees and their interrogators. The military has had previous problems with Imams.

In June, The Washington Post disclosed that some chaplains' service Web sites for the Navy and the Air Force referred sailors and airmen interested in Islam to a site that provides links to the lectures of fundamentalist clerics, some of whom advocate jihad against the United States and Israel.

Either there is a concerted effort by radical imams to join the US military, or else the line dividing radical and mainstream Islam in America is in a bad, bad place.
