       Ali Sale Kayla al-Marri, from Qatar but a legal US resident, arrives in the US, reportedly to pursue a master's degree in computer science at Bradley University in Peoria. [Peoria Journal Star, 12/19/2001; New York Times, 6/21/2004]

       Ali Sale Kayla al-Marri, from Qatar but a legal US resident, is detained for questioning in the county jail of Peoria, Illinois, on a material witness warrant issued by a grand jury. [Peoria Journal Star, 12/19/2001] The government will later charge him with making false statements to the FBI, and prepare for trial. [Amnesty International, 8/19/2003] Al-Marri is believed to be a relative of Saudi national and future Guantanamo detainee Mohamed al-Chastain. [New York Times, 6/21/2004]

       A Qatari detainee, Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri, who is scheduled for trial in the US in August on charges of making false statements to the FBI, is declared an “enemy combatant.” The Pentagon says the judgment is based on unspecified “recent credible information provided by other detainees in the War on Terrorism.” [Amnesty International, 8/19/2003]

June 23, 2003

       President Bush designates Ali Sale Kayla al-Marri as an enemy combatant. Al-Marri has been in US custody since December 2001 (see December 15, 2001). The presidential order says he “engaged in conduct that constituted hostile and war-like acts, including conduct in preparation for acts of international terrorism.” The order adds that Al-Marri “represents a continuing, present, and grave danger to the national security of the United States.” His detention is necessary, the order claims, to prevent him from participating in terrorist activities against the US. Al-Marri is subsequently detained in solitary confinement at the Naval Brig in Charleston. The immediate result of the presidential order is that the Pentagon becomes Al-Marri's new custodian and that Al-Marri will not be entitled to legal representation or access to a US court. “Rather than providing due process,” his lawyer, Mark Berman, says, “the government has chosen a forum in which they can deny the defendant his constitutional rights, not the least of which is right to counsel.” The order in effect precludes a pretrial hearing scheduled for July 2 and the start of a formal trial on July 22. Berman filed a motion to suppress evidence seized at Al-Marri's apartment during an FBI search, which he says was conducted without a warrant. In addition, he claims his client was not properly advised of his rights before his initial interrogation. Officially, Al-Marri was indicted on seven counts, including making false statements to the FBI and identity and credit card fraud. He supposedly lied about contacts between September and November 2001 with an al-Qaeda paymaster in the United Arab Emirates, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi. The Justice Department also alleges that Al-Marri is an al-Qaeda sleeper operative tasked with assisting other members in carrying out future terrorist attacks. These officials say this information was provided by another detainee, believed to be a member of al-Qaeda, who also claims Al-Marri is trained in the use of poisons. Other detainees have told interrogators that Al-Marri met with Osama bin Laden at the Al-Farouq training camp in Afghanistan, where he offered to become a martyr. An additional reason for Al-Marri's designation of enemy combatant appears to be the possibility of drawing more information from him. Attorney General Ashcroft states: “An individual with that kind of situation is an individual who might know a lot about what could happen, might know the names of individuals, information being so key to intelligence and prevention.” [CNN, 6/24/2003]

October 4, 2004

       The Supreme Court rules that Ali Sale Kayla al-Marri's habeas petition was filed in the wrong court. It should have been filed in Illinois instead of South Carolina. The court declines to further consider the case.
