Accused al-Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui was profiled by ABC's Brian Ross. She is a 36-year-old mother of three of Pakistani heritage, a neuroscientist graduate of MIT and Brandeis, on the FBI's Most Wanted list for four years. Ross reported that Siddiqui was arrested in Afghanistan last month and has been extradited to New York City where she is charged with resisting the FBI. "Her friends and family say the young woman is innocent and is being persecuted by the United States." Ross detailed evidence that the FBI claimed to have found "in her handbag" when she was apprehended. It ranged from the innocuous (tourist maps of the Big Apple), to the suspicious (a map of the Plum Island Animal Disease Center), to the threatening (data on chemical, biological and radiological agents), to the "most important…a computer thumb drive packed with e-mails to what she called her units."
