ANOTHER TERRORIST ARRESTED, APPARENTLY:

ST. CATHARINES, Ontario, Aug. 1 — A Canadian man accused of organizing a plot to blow up U.S. and Israeli embassies in Singapore is being held in a secret location in the United States, where he is cooperating and revealing information about terrorists’ plans, U.S. officials said.

The man, Mohammed Mansour Jabarah, 20, a native of Kuwait, was arrested in the Persian Gulf state of Oman and is being held at a military base in the northeastern United States as a material witness, U.S. officials said. Prosecutors are considering filing charges against him in connection with the Singapore operation.

My first thought was that this was Kuwaiti ingratitude, but it’s mostly bad writing. Jabarah grew up in Canada; his family (and apparently him, too) moved to Kuwait last December.
