WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:

Yesterday Dr. Sami Al-Arian was released from custody for the first time in more than five years. Even though his criminal sentence ended 16 months ago, Al-Arian had been held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody since a federal judge ordered him released on bail in July.

WMNF spoke with Al-Arian’s daughter, freelance journalist Laila Al-Arian Tuesday night.
