That suggests the defendant, Sami Al-Hussayen, never had any connection to those sub-sites, which include such key evidence as a link to a site for Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization. That link is cited in the charges against Al-Hussayen for aiding terrorists.
Under questioning, Pulcastro refused to answer Nevin's question about whether there had been any link to those two sub-sites on www.islamway.com after May of 2000. Instead, Pulcastro repeatedly insisted that the sites still existed, if you knew how to find them directly without links.
After Nevin had the court reporter re-read the question and several objections from the prosecution were overruled, Nevin asked Pulcastro, "For the fifth time, is there a link?"
"I can't tell you that, sir," Pulcastro responded. "What I can tell you is that these sites still existed."
Nevin's cross-examination of Pulcastro will wrap up in the morning.
