UN out of the US, NOW!
What's the point of this? Is the UN going to send a sheriff?
Forget the sanctions, just kill them.
Batterjee's man in the USA, Inaam Arnout, headed the Benevolence International Foundation. It was the FBI raid on Arnout's BIF office that provided (better late than never!) excellent information on the founding of Al Qaeda in Pakistan. And weeks later, when the BIF office was raided in Bosnia, investigators found a list ("the Golden Chain") of bin Laden's money men which has proven to be indispensible in the fight against Islamist terror.
Why involve the UN at all. Get the CIA to take to to Gitmo.
... Two of the men contacted by Bin Laden in Britain Khaled al Fawwaz and Ibrahim Eidarous are now in prison awaiting extradition to the United States for their part in the embassy bombings, which killed 224 and injured thousands.
However, another senior terrorist suspect, Mustafa Nazar, is still on the loose. He spent up to two years in Dollis Hill, north London, recruiting for Al-Qaeda. A key figure in Bin Ladens terror training camps, he left Britain in 1998 and was last seen in Afghanistan fighting alongside the Taliban.
The telephone records have come to light following the trial last year of four Al-Qaeda terrorists who planned and carried out the bombing of the two American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
According to trial documents, the telephone [the one bin Laden used] was bought in 1996 with the help of Dr Saad al Fagih, 45, a bearded surgeon who heads the London-based Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia. This fundamentalist Muslim group is dedicated to the overthrow of the Saudi Arabian government but is not part of Al-Qaeda.
Al Fagih, who has been regularly used by the BBC as an expert on Bin Laden, has in the past explained that Muslim scholars said the killing of civilians, including children, was allowed by the Koran as collateral damage in the holy war.
It was al Fagihs credit card which was used to help to buy the £10,500 Compact-M satellite phone in the United States and it was shipped to his home in north London, according to American court documents. His credit card was also used to buy more than 3,000 minutes of pre-paid airtime.
Last week al Fagih, who has not been arrested or charged in connection with any of these actions, said: I am willing to speak to the authorities if they ask me about this or any other issue, but not to the press. ...------ "Bin Laden called UK 260 times," by Nick Fielding and Dipesh Gadhery, The Sunday Times (U.K.), 03/24/2002
