The first man to be sentenced in the Lackwanna case got 8 years. 8 years for visiting an al-Qaeda training camp. That's all he did. He visited the camp, and then left because it freaked him out.

His crime was "providing material assistance to a terrorist organization."

8 years.

Everyone should check out the website for the Frontline documentary on the case Chasing the Sleeper Cell and watch the show online if they have a decent connection.

Unfortunately, the 10,000 New York Times piece on the case is no longer free (but I guess if you're going to spend $2.50 on a times article, this one is worth it). Or go to the library - it was on the front page of the Sunday, October 12th, 2003 paper.
