If convicted of all the charges, Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, 23, faces a maximum sentence of 80 years in prison.
Abu Ali, a former Virginia high school valedictorian, made an initial appearance Tuesday in U.S. District Court. He contended that he was tortured while detained in Saudi Arabia since June of 2003 and offered through his lawyer to show the judge his scars.Of course, there is more to the story. Thanks to LGF, we know that he was valedictorian, not of your average Northern VA high school, but of the Islamic Saudi Academy. Why are no MSM reporting this little bit of useful info?
