LAHORE, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistani intelligence agencies have arrested two suspected al Qaeda members in separate raids in Peshawar and Lahore, the nation's information minister has said. In Peshawar, the raid of a house netted Abdul Rehman, described by Pakistani intelligence as a "foreigner," Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said. Rehman, who was known as "Electronic" within al Qaeda, was also wanted by U.S. intelligence, Ahmed said. The second al Qaeda suspect -- a Yemeni man -- was arrested in Lahore late Wednesday. Intelligence tracked him as he traveled from Wana, near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, through Islamabad and on to Lahore. Ahmed said he was planning to return to Yemen through the Arabian Sea. Without giving details, Pakistani intelligence said he was carrying some important documents with him.

That's one way to describe an Iraqi citizen born in Indiana.
I do believe we've captured Abdul Rahman Yasin, folks.
The latest poll results? Right before capture he was overheard mumbling to himself, "Oh crap, oh crap."
I hope these docs nail down the locations of any remaining leaders of AQ.
If this is Abdul Rahman Yasin, those docs could do a lot more than that.
Also keep in mind, if this is Yasin, he's already been convicted in the United States for his role in the '93 WTC bombing. Once his identity is confirmed, he'll be extradited.
When/If that happens, the story will explode... and the MSM will be powerless to stop it.
Jar my memory... does Pakistan have an extradition treaty with the US? My concern is that Islamic society/law prevents that.
Ramzi Yousef was also captured in Pakistan and extradited to the U.S.
I'd love to see the top levels of AQ leadership treated with the very same courtesy.
Senator Schumer's Letter to FBI Mueller asking for Priority in Locating Yasin ... (includes mention of offer from Baghdad to hand him over, and that Yasin's 93 attack was the model for 9/11)
CBS News: The Man Who Got Away
Yasin, who was indicted in the bombing but escaped, was interviewed by CBS News' Lesley Stahl in an Iraqi installation near Baghdad last Thursday, May 23.
Let's not forget, Yasin's co-conspirator Ramzi Yousef is also 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed's nephew.
Color me bad but since I never watch CBS, I missed this:
Abdul Rahman Yasin is the only participant in the first attempt to blow up the World Trade Center in 1993 who was never caught. Yasin, who was indicted in the bombing but escaped, was interviewed by CBS News' Lesley Stahl in an Iraqi installation near Baghdad last Thursday, May 23. Stahl's report appeared on 60 Minutes, Sunday June 2nd.
Lesley Stahl interviewed this guy instead of turning him into the CIA? CBS and terrorists - a proud brotherhood of anti-Americanism. I hate CBS even more now, if possible.

In this tour de force on the most important issue of our time, David Horowitz, confronts the paradox of how so many Americans, including the leadership of the Democratic Party, could turn against the War on Terror. He finds an answer in a political Left that shares a view of America as the Great Satan with Americas radical Islamic enemies. In a remarkable exploration of the Mind of the Left, Horowitz traces the evolution of American radicalism from its Communist past to its anti-war present. He then shows how this Left was able to turn the Democratic Party presidential campaign around and reshape its views on the War on Terror.
Perhaps every network has a terrorist connection:
CBS - Abdul Rahman Yasin
ABC - Usama Bin Laden
NBC - Saddam Hussein ( a la Peter Arnette... or is that ALLAH Peter Arnette?)
Thanks for the reminder - adding to my wishlist.
This may be a biggie.
Another intriguing detail unmentioned by the AP: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is Ramzi Yousef's uncle........"Military, intelligence and law enforcement officials reported finding a large cache of Arabic-language documents in Tikrit, Saddam's political stronghold. A U.S. intelligence official ... said some [U.S. intelligence] analysts have concluded that the documents show that Saddam's government provided monthly payments and a home for Yasin."
I just hope this is the SAME Abdul Rahman YASIN and this guy is really brought to justice.
Iraq is holding accused World Trade Center bomber Abdul Rahman Yasin in jail and has made two offers to hand him over to the United States but was rejected both times, the CBS News program ``60 Minutes'' reported on Sunday. CBS broadcast excerpts of an interview with Yasin, who is on the FBI's list of 22 most wanted terrorists, which it conducted last month at the Baghdad prison where the Iraqis told the network he had been held for eight years. "
Do you think it was May of this year (2004)?
Looks like it might have been in 2002.
What do you think?
The interview was pre-invasion.
Right back at'cha BUMP.
Khalid Sheik Mohammed = captured in Rawalpindi
Ramzi Yousef = caputred in Islamabad
Abdul Rahmen (Yasin?) = captured in Peshawar
All within 100 miles of each other.
Is there any way you can add "Abdul Rahman Yasin???" in parenthesis to the title of this thread?
Also, Mir Aimal Kasi, who was executed in Virginia for the shooting at the CIA building, was extradited from Pakistan.
Working together ~ Rounding up bad guys ~ Bump!
STAHL: Does he have to have these handcuffs? Can someone please remove them?
Everyone should read this interview... How many of us knew that Yasin was on WELFARE? Receiving taxpayer dollars to live while he plotted the WTC attack in 93??
Former ABC News correspondent Sheila MacVicar looked for Yasin, and here is what she reported on July 27, 1994: Last week, [television program] Day One confirmed [Yasin] is in Baghdad Just a few days ago, he was seen at [his fathers] house by ABC News. Neighbors told us Yasin comes and goes freely. 15
Why should this surprise any of us.
ABCNNBC BS, the NY/La Slimes have been in bed with the terrorists since 9/12/01.
