              The Al Capone Precedent
Mad As Hell, a new poster on The Nudnik File, sends along this story.
German authorities on Sunday arrested two suspected members of al Qaeda, one of whom had tried to obtain nuclear materials and had contacts with Osama bin Laden, officials said.
The two suspects sought to raise money by taking out an 800,000 euro ($1 million) life insurance policy on Yasser Abu S., who planned to fake a fatal traffic accident and use the money for jihad, or holy war, the statement said.
If they can't convict them on the terrorism charges, at least they will be able to get them on insurance fraud.
