Cash for Jihad?

The average annual income in Yemen is $2,200. These guys were really generous.

The federal government called it a scam. Three men wired $88 million overseas, prosecutors say, and tried to keep it a secret. But a defense lawyer says they weren't doing anything bad with the money: They were just sending it home to relatives, and the government knew it.

$88 million to relatives in Yemen. Sounds legit.

Ayad is representing Omar Alhalmi, 38, who is charged with funneling $22.3 million to Yemen and other countries by creating phony businesses whose only purpose was to move cash overseas.
