An arrest three years ago in St. Louis that turned into an international terrorism investigation will lead back to the courtroom December 12th. A check at Lambert-St. Louis Airport of luggage carried by Lebanon national Haissam Nashar turned up about $700,000 worth of cigarette tax stamps. That arrest led to the break-up of a funding pipeline that put money into the hands of the Hezbollah, the Islamic terrorist group. Nashar will be sentenced next month. He pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of phony tax stamps.
