We have no idea who is in this country, or what intentions they may have.

The Justice Department has charged a California man for allegedly lying about his identity and immigration status, and failing to disclose that he has been associating with senior al Qaeda leaders.

According to a newly-released indictment, Ahmadullah Sais Niazi hid from U.S. immigration officials his association with his brother-in-law Dr. Amin al-Haq, who the indictment says is the security coordinator for Osama bin Laden, and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, another Islamic radical suspected of supporting "terrorists acts carried out by al Qaeda and the Taliban."

The FBI is also looking into Niazi's associations within the United States, and trying to determine if he was sent here as an operative for al Qaeda.

The government also claims Niazi failed to disclose to immigration officials a trip to Pakistan in May 2004. The government claims the deception was part of an effort to illegally obtain U.S. citizenship.
