"But that video, that casing video...to suggest, as I think the government ultimately will do, that somehow that means Mr. Sadequee was involved in going to blow up one of these buildings or was going to attack one of these buildings, there is actually no evidence to support that at all."
Sadequee has reportedly been assaulted while in detention at a Bureau of Prison's facility. According to pre-trial transcripts in his case, set for trial in August, Sadequee has allegedly attempted on several occasions to make 3-way calls to family members and others despite restrictions on his communications and other incidents of mischief such as jamming his prison door shut with magazines and papers.
While his defense has tried to get Sadequee out on bond while he awaits trial, the government has objected, noting that he is a flight risk and has long wanted to inflict harm on the United States. In a May 9, 2009 motion, the government noted, "An e-mail sent by Defendant shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, to a known Taliban conduit, in which Sadequee expressed his desire to join the Taliban in their violence jihad against U.S. forces in Afghanistan."
