John Allen Muhammad, Document Fraud, and the Western Hemisphere Passport Exception: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, and Claims of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, One Hundred Eighth Congress, First Session, May 13, 2003
United States. Government Printing Office
From the opening statement of John N. Hostettler: "In the autumn of 2002, the Nation was shocked by a wave of shootings in the National Capital area. In a spree that lasted from October 2, 2002 through October 22, 2002, 13 people were shot, 10 of whom died from their wounds. On Thursday, October 24, 2002, troopers from the Maryland State Police and other law enforcement officials arrested two individuals - John Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo - outside Frederick, MD. The pair have subsequently been charged under multiple indictments in connection with those shootings. As the news of the arrests and the names of the suspects was broadcast worldwide, the Government of Antigua and Barbuda recognized that Muhammad and Malvo had been residents in that country. They determined also that Muhammad had received an Antiguan passport despite being a U.S. citizen. On October 28, 2002, the Attorney General of Antigua and Barbuda appointed a task force to look into the activities of Muhammad and Malvo while in Antigua. The task force was headed by Antiguan attorney John Fuller. On December 31, 2002, Mr. Fuller's task force released its support. He has graciously agreed to come to Washington and discuss the findings of that task force with the Subcommittee today, and we are appreciative, Mr. Fuller." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John N. Hostettler, Sheila Jackson Lee, Lamar Smith, Steve King, John E. Fuller, Robert J. Cramer, Roderick L. Beverly, and Sharon Palmer-Royston.
