Seattle terror suspect wants evidence tossed

Topics: From the Wires,

SEATTLE (AP) — Lawyers for a man accused of plotting to attack a military office in Seattle last year want some of the evidence against him thrown out. They say the government should not have been able to obtain a secret warrant because there was no indication the man was involved in international terrorism.

Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif was arrested last June, along with an acquaintance from Los Angeles, when authorities said they arrived at a Seattle warehouse garage to pick up machine guns and grenades to use in the attack.

Defense lawyers say that weeks before the arrest, investigators used the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to intercept Abdul-Latif’s phone calls and four years of his emails. The U.S. attorney’s office has not yet responded to their motion to suppress that evidence.
