In 2011 two Iraqi nationals living in Bowling Green were arrested for attempting to provide money and weapons to terrorists in Iraq. The decision to try Mohanad Shareef Hammadi and Waad Alwan in a civilian court resulted in an outcry from some community members and representatives including Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and state Rep. Jim DeCesare, R-Bowling Green who all argued that the two men should be tried before a military commission at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
