Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Katherine Hughes about the case of Dr. Rafil Dhafir, who was a respected oncologist in New York state when, in 2003, he was charged with using his humanitarian organizaton, Help the Needy, as a front for terrorist activities. He was held withthout bail for 31 months and then sentenced to 22 years in a U.S. prison.
