NPR's Margot Adler reports from New York on last night's release of an Egyptian man who was imprisoned by the Immigration and Naturalization Service for three years on secret evidence alleging he was involved in terrorism. The INS decided to allow Nasser Ahmed to go free, even though it says it would continue to try to prove he's a threat to national security. Approximately 20 other Arab men are still in jail on similar secret allegations.
