Movie to Premiere in January Waiting for Mercy

ALBANY: Last May, Save the Pine Bush sponsored a book signing for Yassin Aref’s newly published Son of Mountains. Come see this new, powerful documentary which tells the story of the fabricated FBI sting operation in Albany that made international headlines in the “war on terror”.

Waiting for Mercy opens by asking viewers a direct question: were Yassin Aref, and Mohammed Mosharref Hossain, really terrorists, or were they set up? Using some of the actual material recorded over many months by the FBI informant (a Pakistani criminal), Waiting for Mercy explores issues raised by the case, including warrantless wiretapping, secret evidence, entrapment, and the targeting of Muslims
