ARMY CHAPLAIN, WEST POINT GRAD,
ARRESTED FOR ESPIONAGE – CAUGHT
BY FBI WITH CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS
CPT JAMES YEE, MUSLIM CHAPLAIN
AT GUANTANAMO FOR SUSPECTED
AL QAEDA TERRORISTS, TRANSPORTED
TO NAVY BRIG IN CHARLESTON, S.C.
In what promises to be one of the most stunning “spy” cases in recent times, a West Point graduate and Army chaplain has been arrested by the FBI for espionage.
CPT James J. Yee, 35, of Chinese-American descent, was nailed by federal agents earlier this month as he arrived in Jacksonville, Florida on a return military flight from the United States “al Qaeda” detention center at Guantanamo, Cuba.
The 1990 West Point graduate, one of the Army’s first “politically-correct” Islamic chaplains – he served at Fort Lewis, Wash. as command chaplain for I Corps prior to his Guantanamo assignment – has been charged with “espionage, aiding the enemy and spying.” A further charge of “treason” may be in the works, informed sources say.
MARRIED TO A SYRIAN WOMAN
Outstanding military reporter Rowan Scarborough revealed on Saturday, Sept. 20, in the Washington TIMES, that FBI agents had “confiscated several classified documents in [Yee’s] possession and interrogated him.”
The story said Yee was held two days after his arrest at Jacksonville, then transferred to the Navy Brig at Charleston, S.C. He has been assigned tow military lawyers to prepare his defense.
Yee left the Army in the mid-1990’s and studied Islam in the Middle East. Born a Lutheran, in a Christian family in New Jersey, Yee converted to Islam while still a West Point cadet.
Investigators said he is married to a Syrian woman he met in that country while undergoing religious training in traditional Islamic beliefs.
He was permitted to re-enter the U.S. Army as an Islamic chaplain in the late 1990’s and is said to have been “under surveillance for some time” by the FBI.
ONE OF FIRST U.S. ARMY MUSLIM CHAPLAINS
CPT Yee was the subject of many fawning press accounts in the media, especially after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against this country. .
“What happened is un-Islamic and categorically denied by a great majority of Muslim scholars around the world,” the captain said then of terrorists who took over passenger jets and crashed them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania farm field.
The accused is a former Patriot missile fire control officer in the U.S. Army’s Air Defense Artillery.
One of 17 Muslim chaplains in the Army at the time of his arrest, Yee benefited from the climate of “political correctness” in the U.S. military during the Bill Clinton administration.
The Islamic “prayer center” at Fort Lewis, Wash., for example, was formerly used for Protestant and Catholic religious services.
Estimates vary, but it is generally believed there are around 10,000 Muslims serving in the U.S. Army today. Many of them are African-Americans.
