NEW YORK A U.S.-trained Pakistani scientist has been convicted of charges she tried to kill Americans while she was detained in Afghanistan.
A Manhattan jury found Aafia Siddiqui guilty Wednesday of seven counts of attempted murder.
Authorities had called her an Al Qaeda supporter before she was detained in Afghanistan in 2008. They claim she was caught carrying bomb-making instructions and a list of New York landmarks. However, she had not faced terrorism charges.

why was she brought to NY to be tried?
Well she was carrying a list of New York landmarks. Woudln’t want to keep her from seeing the sights.
Trying to kill Americans is a crime? Does the rest of the middle east know this?
Did the U.S. taxpayers pay for her education?
Swift sentencing, followed by incarceration in a place where she can’t get a squeak out to anyone. Should be dropped from a plane at a altitude of four miles. Sigh.
I wondered that myself. The big mistake was not shooting her dead on the spot when she was waving that weapon around.
Just hang the B*tch.....
That chief needs some more time at the range.
Well, he tried - she was gut shot but they saved her in surgery.
Next time gotta drag the feet a bit...
Dang. Aim issues, too. “I called for an ambulance immediately after having a cocktail, dining and enjoying a stogie.”
What the heck does it take to be charged as a terrorist?
Geneva convention, and other agreements require that one wear a readily identifiable uniform, carry any weapons openly, possess an Identification card, incorporated in a rank structure, w/ chain of command.
Next, none of these clowns are signatories to any type of Hague or Geneva rules of war.
This makes these clowns unlawful enemy combatants. Typically they are hanged in a very short time period, after a military tribunal.
