Not all his

Large numbers of the files on the computer seized from Sami Al-Hussayen's apartment weren't his - suggesting the computer was used by others, too, and may not always have been at Al-Hussayen's Moscow home.

That information, brought out in cross-examination by defense attorneys this morning, followed earlier testimony that the computer contains articles about suicide attacks and records of thousands of financial transactions.

Lead defense attorney David Nevin, cross-examining government computer expert Curtis Rose, pointed to a document found in the computer that appeared to be a letter from another person about child support and parenting issues regarding that person's son, Jalani Kidd. Al-Hussayen is married with three sons, Muhanned, Tameem and Ziad Al-Hussayen, but no children named Jalani Kidd.

The "Jalani" file was part of a long list of files in a category within the computer hard drive named "Al-Ked." Among the many file names flashed on a large courtroom screen in that Al-Ked list were files entitled "fatwa" and "jihad images."
