Eye On Boise

Not about Al-Hussayen?

In his cross-examination of FBI Special Agent Michael Gneckow on Tuesday morning, defense attorney David Nevin asked Gneckow, “Just so we’re clear about it, that call you got from a bank employee in 2001, that did not relate to Mr. Al-Hussayen, is that correct?”

Gneckow had testified earlier that a tip from a Moscow bank employee about suspicious bank transactions was what kicked off the FBI’s investigation of Sami Al-Hussayen for possible links to terrorism.

But Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Lindquist objected that Nevin’s question was out of order, because it didn’t address what Gneckow had just been testifying about - pictures from the Feb. 26, 2001 searches in Moscow and Michigan. The judge sustained the objection, and the question went unanswered.
