Prosecutorial misconduct threatens terrorism convictions

The convictions of three men convicted of belonging to a terrorist cell in Detroit may be quashed after it was revealed that the prosecution withheld relevant evidence from the defence - most notably, testimony undermining the credability of a key prosecution witness.

Stupid American prosecutors - they're so intent on sticking another conviction on their scorecard that they cut corners. If these men are released, the prosecution will have only themselves to blame.
