JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A local man is facing charges related to a conspiracy to send money to Syria.

Emell Meda is accused of ordering and paying three other people to send thousands of dollars to a person in Syria while using their names.  They were supposed to use Meda's name since he was the source of the money for the international electronic funds transfers.

Meda has been charged with one count of conspiracy to structure financial transactions, and one count of structuring financial transactions.  He faces 10 years in federal prison if convicted on both counts.

If he was sending money to the rebels more power to him. Assad is butcher and dictator. He enlisted the aid of Hezbollah recently to start destroying the rebels. Meanwhile Obama has been told by the rest the world Syria has used chemical weapons and refuses to act. Didn't Biden say he's man when his steel is tested people will be surprised. Well surprise a thing like a Russian base in Syria scare Obama badly enough he willing for children to be murdered and chemical weapons to be used and still not act.

So sending money is crime now ? Was it to terrorist organization he was laundering money for ? Seems to me he should opt for jury trial and ask if it is crime to send money overseas now if, so demand they immediately arrest Obama.
