DETECTIVES want to question a white British security expert who they suspect has provided military training for members of the al-Qaeda terrorist network (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2001/10/07/wbin107.xml).


The Telegraph can reveal that Mark Yates, from Cheshire, is one of 23 people who Scotland Yard want to question over the activities of alleged terrorists in Britain.


(...)


The 43-year-old former Territorial Army officer owns a number of American and British-based companies which specialise in providing military training courses on both sides of the Atlantic.


Police believe that British Muslims may have taken advantage of his services before travelling to war zones in Chechnya, Bosnia and, more recently, Afghanistan. There is no suggestion, however, that Mr Yates knew that the Muslims intended to engage in terrorism.


Two of his companies, Berkeley and Associates Inc and Trans Global Security International, run military training courses in the north west of England and in Alabama.
The company's US operation boasts three shooting ranges, two of which are designed for tactical submachine guns. The facility also has a "live fire combat house", similar to those used by the SAS and the American Navy.

I remember a news story that was only a blurb about some middle eastern looking men in South Alabama at some training facility. Only heard it once. Funny thing about South Alabama, somebody of middle eastern descent will stick out like a sore thumb. If you ain't black, you are white. That's the only two colors you see with any regularity.

I think much of rural america is like that-the place in Michigan where they are talking about putting the Gitmo detainees is like that. There wouldn't be many black people, except that there was a prison there and there are lots of black employees of the MDOC who can't wait to get a job in a rural area, so their kids can grow up in the country.
