US Soldier Linked to Al Qaeda

FORT LEWIS, Wash.—A National Guardsman was arrested and accused of trying to provide information to the Al Qaeda terrorist network, the U.S. Army has announced.

Army Lt.-Col. Stephen Barger said yesterday that Specialist Ryan Anderson was being held at Fort Lewis "pending criminal charges of aiding the enemy by wrongfully attempting to communicate and give intelligence to the Al Qaeda terrorist network."

Anderson's hometown newspaper, The Everett Herald, reported that Barger had converted to Islam 5 years ago.
