WASHINGTON: Pakistan has officially demanded U.S that Pakistani detainee Dr. Aafia Siddiqui be provided under Pakistans custody here on late Tuesday, sources said.
Pakistan ambassador to United States Hussain Haqqani has forwarded a letter to U.S. State Department demanding sue motto custody of Aafia Siddiqui to Pakistan, it added.
Letter reveals Pakistans demand to U.S. to immediately entrust Dr. Aafia and her three children to Pakistan custody, Pakistan embassy sources said.
Dr. Aafia Siddiqui matter has been politicized in Pakistan and the people want her immediate release, it further added.
Pakistan demands laugh a minute Pakistan demands LOL!!
Waterboard that ass.
Right...waterboard her. Do whatever is necessary, but don’t hand her over to Pakistan.
In light of her recent capture, here is my Aafia Siddiqui timeline from a few years back in posts 12 hrough 18:
Oh my goodness I went to school with this chick. We lived in the same dorm, but different sections. All I remember though is that she was not friendly.
She was dispatched to the US by KSM to aid Majid Khan - a relative of the “Columbus cell’s” Iyman Faris, both of them linked to Uzair Parachas, the shipping container guy who met with KSM before getting caught. There were two black American jihadists involved with KSM as well, and KSM was hiding out with someone linked to A Q Khan the Islamic Bomb man. A Q Khan was involved in the African diamond trade as was Siddiqui and a host of other interesting characters. She could be very interesting indeed.
MARCH 1, 2003 : (KSM CAPTURED IN PAKISTAN— AND QUESTIONED ABOUT HIS SAFE HOUSE OPERATOR WHO IS ALSO CONNECTED TO PAKISTANI NUCLEAR SCIENTIST A Q KHAN) Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the No. 3 leader of al-Qaeda, who was captured in Pakistan on March 1, has been questioned extensively about his relationship with Osama bin Laden and the 9/11 hijackers. But his U.S. interrogators have also grilled him about another figure of much concern to Washington: Abdul Qadeer Khan, the maverick Pakistani scientist who has been called the father of the Islamic Bomb. U.S. intelligence, according to one official, has information that the al-Qaeda man and the nuclear scientist had connections with the same safe-house operator and may have crossed paths. They were “reported to be at the same place at approximately the same time,” the official said. Under questioning, according to the source, Mohammed denied seeing Khan and downplayed any usefulness Khan may have had to al-Qaeda. Khan declined repeated requests from TIME to comment on the accusations. - “Al-Qaeda’s Nuclear Contact?,” by TIM BURGER AND TIM MCGIRK, Time , Monday, May. 19, 2003
I’d offer to ‘trade’ her for OBL and al-Zawahiri and about 1,000 other AL Qaeda monsters from the tribal areas, Waziristan, etc.
Then, after we have all those bad dudes in our custody, we air-drop her over Islamabad without a parachute.
Yup, that’s a fair trade.
MARCH 1, 2003 early AM Saturday : (RAWALPINDI, PAKISTAN : THREE MEN ARRESTED IN RAID- A PAKISTANI NAMED AHMED QADOOS, AN UNNAMED “FOREIGN NATIONAL OF ARAB ORIGIN,” AND KHALID SHAIKH MOHAMMED - NOTE THAT QADOOS’S FATHER WAS A MICROBIOLOGIST WHO HAD WORKED FOR THE UN) Arrested by plainclothes Pakistani security agents who raided a house in the central city of Rawalpindi in a pre-dawn raid on Saturday, Mohammed was branded by Washington as one of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s “most senior and significant lieutenants.” ) ...The White House [later] said Mohammed, one of three al Qaeda suspects detained in the early morning swoop, was “a key al Qaeda planner and the mastermind of the September 11 attacks.” Officials said the others were a Pakistani and a foreign national of Arab origin. ...
...No information was available on the second Arab held in the weekend raid. The Pakistani was identified as Ahmed Qadoos. His family said he was arrested at about 3:30 a.m. on Saturday (2230 GMT on Friday) by armed security officials, who also took away a computer. No one else from the house was arrested.
“They shut family members in a room at gunpoint,” his cousin Omar Khan told Reuters. “He is not linked with anything.”
Ahmed [Qadoos] has a wife and two children and lived with his parents. His father is a retired microbiologist who had worked for the United Nations and had lived abroad, his mother is a member of one of Pakistan’s most prominent Islamic parties. ——— “Pakistan Hands Sept 11 Mastermind to U.S.,” by Tahir Ikram and Amir Zia, Reuters, 3/02/03
Give us Bin Laden and Zawahiri, and we’ll talk.
If that is true then you need to contact your local FBI. They are currently trying to track down all of her former classmates.
Thanks piasa for updating that thread.
