Mike Hawash has finally been charged, with "conspiracy to levy war against the United States, conspiracy to provide material support to al Qaeda and conspiracy to contribute services to al Qaeda and the Taliban". Reuters has an initial story here, and another one here (compare and contrast...). Mike's Supporters are still behind him, and say that "Mike's friends and those who know him think the idea that Mike would have fought for the Taliban or traveled to Afghanistan is absurd. Mike's concerns were for his family in America, his family in Palestine, and for his faith.". It's interesting that Mike's letter from prison was removed from his site a few days ago, and is now only available in the google cache (and the personal cache of anyone with the wget -U " " -pk command).
