Pakistani authorities and experienced players of the double game keep up appearances for the gullible West. “US ‘jihad seekers’ awarded 10 years imprisonment by Pak court,” from ANI, June 24 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Islamabad, June 24 (ANI): A Pakistani anti-terrorism court on Thursday awarded 10 years imprisonment to each of the five US terror suspects who were arrested from Punjab province’s Sargodha District in December 2009.
Waqar Husain Khan, 22 (Virginia), Ahmed Abdullah Mani, 20 (Virginia), Ramay S Zamzam, 22 (Egypt), Iman Hasan Yamar, 17 (California), and Omar Farouk, 24 (Virginia) were arrested on charges of plotting terror attacks across Pakistan, The News reports.
The five ‘jihad seekers’ had visited a religious seminary linked to the outlawed Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in Hyderabad and were on their way to terror camps based in the volatile Waziristan region….
A religious seminary? Full of Misunderstanders of Islam? Why, it’s…inexplicable, if you buy into the mainstream view of Islamic terrorism’s relationship to Islam.
The jihad seekers had pleaded innocence, saying they were being ‘set up’ and tortured by the FBI and the Pakistani police in custody. (ANI)
