Former Army Chaplain Yee Will Speak in Tulsa

James Yee is a West Point graduate and former Army chaplain. He's also a Muslim who has the odd distinction of having been accused of giving secrets to al-Qaida suspects at Guantanamo.

Yee was arrested and held in solitary confinement for 76 days. Then all the charges against Yee were dropped. He was a free man.

Yee will tell his story and sign books on Friday, June 6, when he visits Tulsa for a talk called "Faith and Patriotism Under Fire." Yee will speak at TU's Lorton Hall at 7 p.m., in room 2003.

The speech is sponsored by the Islamic Society of Tulsa, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance, and the Muslim Student Association at TU.
