The United States Embassy in Islamabad on Wednesday declined Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeeds offer for financial and humanitarian assistance to America in wake of the destruction caused by hurricane Sandy.
Earlier in 2012, the US put up a reward of $10 million for anyone who would provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of Hafiz Saeed. A subsequent tweet read:
Saaed is wanted for suspected involvement in the Mumbai attacks, which killed 166. JuD is a UN&US-designated terrorist org.

I say we accept the offer and turn around and add that to the reward.
Make the smart-@$$......well, smart.
Huseein’s pals from back in the day.
From the news story:
In a tweet on micro-blogging website Twitter on
Wednesday, the [U.S.] Embassy said:
We respect the Islamic tradition of help to the needy,
but we cant take Hafiz Saeeds offer seriously.
“Islamic tradition of help” — since when? Also, after Hillary Clinton condemned social media (”it’s not evidence” when al Qaeda-linked terrorist group claimed responsibility for the Benghazi attack), why is the embassy using Twitter for official communications?
