HLF mistrial a stunning defeat for US government, "little evidence" presented

The judge in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial today declared a mistrial in regards to allegations that HLF gave material support to Palestinian terrorists.

The government could not produce one single guilty verdict on the 192 charges brought against the defendants. Considering how much negative media coverage surrounded the defendants, one would have thought that the goverment's case would have been a 'slam dunk' if there was veracity to the evidence presented.

Also, one juror says that there was "little evidence" for a conviction on anything.

"I thought they were not guilty across the board," said the juror, William Neal, a 33-year-old art director from Dallas. The case "was strung together with macaroni noodles. There was so little evidence."
