Imprisoned Iraqi defends activities

Associated Press

LOUISVILLE - An Iraqi man convicted of trying to ship arms and cash to Al-Qaida in Iraq doesn't consider himself a terrorist for his time battling U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Instead, he compares himself to the Americans who fought for independence from British colonial rule in the 1770s.

In a letter to The Associated Press, Waad Ramandan Alwan, 33, also lashes out at President George W. Bush, who organized the multinational coalition that invaded Iraq in 2003 to oust Saddam Hussein.

"There is a resistance in Iraq; they are not rebellions," Alwan wrote from a federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind. "If what happened in Iraq had happened in America you would have done what I did in resisting the conquest."
