My naive and inexpert guess is that Siddiqui may be in custody because
she’s “dishing” on some terrorists/Al-Queda and needs the protection
of the USA for herself and her children.

(VOA’s speculation is based on this passage from this passage from
the Wikipedia article linked in post #1)


Her ex-husband, anæsthesiologist Mohammed Amjad Khan, is now working
as a physician at a hospital in Karachi, Pakistan. Khan and Siddiqui are
divorced following vehement disagreements over how their three children
should be educated. Siddiqui wanted the children to be educated in
the West and to live in America. Khan wanted the children to be
educated in Pakistan under strict Muslim supervision.
Khan’s family lives in a wealthy compound in Karachi.

If the article didn’t have all the anti-CIA pablum and peacenik groups spokesmen, I would construct the following theory in my head rather than blaming the US first:

“Hmmm. Perhaps being an associate of KSM she went on the lam to avoid capture, hid her kids with surrogates and got mixed up with other malicious folks like KSM and might have gotten herself a bit roughed up on the dark side....and...just maybe someone has recently turned her in and the US is appropriately acknowledging it.”

In fact, I bet there are thousands of ways to read this before I get to the “US gulag” assumption.

And why do they insist on randomly attributing badness to either the FBI (domestic) and CIA (foreign) without distinction?

If she assisted Al Qaeda, then she is an illegal combatant. She should have been given a summary trial in the field, at the point of capture, and then hanged.

Ali Abd Al Aziz Ali...

Quite a handle.

Anyway, I really don't give a rats ass about this terrorist...being woman or man does not matter one bit. If she's suffering in Gitmo or anywhere else is the result of her poor decisions.

You sleep with dogs...

Isn’t it interesting that she is called the ‘gray lady’! How fitting that a terrorist would be named after the NEW YORK TIMES.

Why is it Amnesty International has had NOTHING to say about captured, tortured, murdered US soldiers and citizens by Al Qaeda in Iraq?

You’d think that they were impartial in this whole war. You’d think...
