    American Citizen detained in Yemen

    Back in 2012 Frank Motos was detained in Yemen for three months being suspected to be linked to AL-Qaeda.
    You can see the german publication here "http://www.ndr.de/regional/schleswig-holstein/jemen169.html"

    I know Frank personally when he lived in the United States, we both went to Earle C Clements Job Corps in Morgansfield KY back in 2002, the german publication reviels that he just recently became muslim which is not correct since he was muslim back them he brought me to a mosque and introducts me to Islam he was also against me joining the military and was always very secretive about his past. He was a good and true person back then and he always denouced Al-Qaeda and Islamic terrorists stating that true beleivers of Islam do not resort to violence.
    I do not believe he had ties to Al-Qaeda.
