The FBI's Jihad, a short film


Talked with Wazhma Mojaddidi on the phone, today. She told me Hamid Hayat was moved to a prison in Bakersfield about four months ago, and then about month and a half ago he was moved to Indiana. With Hamid's family in Lodi, this several-thousand-miles move must have created a major inconvenience for the visitors.
Is there hope for Hamid? Yes, there is. And the hope is called Dennis Riordan, the appellate attorney who is filing appeal. Riordan is a topnotch lawyer who has taken Hamid’s case out of the goodness of his heart. Unfortunately, Riordan is Hamid’s last hope.
