"The European Court of Human Rights ruled on Tuesday that Abu Qatada, a radical Islamic preacher regarded as one of Al Qaeda’s spiritual leaders in Europe, cannot be deported from Britain to his native Jordan because his trial there would be tainted by evidence obtained by torture. The preacher, whose real name is Omar Mahmoud Mohammed Othman, is in custody in Britain and has been convicted in his absence in Jordan of two major terrorist conspiracies." (01/17/12)
