Bin Laden Widows, Daughters Face Deportation

April 18, 2012

Osama bin Laden’s three widows and two daughters could be deported from Pakistan after their period of house detention expired.

From CNN:

A Pakistani judge ordered earlier this month that the five women be deported back to their countries of citizenship after serving their sentence for living illegally in Pakistan.

The 45-day detention period ended Tuesday night, said Aamir Khalil, the widows’ lawyer. But he said he had no information on when they would be deported.

The widows — identified by U.S. and Pakistani officials as Amal Ahmed Abdul Fateh, Khairiah Sabar and Siham Sabar — have been in Pakistani custody since U.S. Navy SEALs raided bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad and killed the al Qaeda leader in May 2011.

‘Lone Wolf’ Caught in New York Terror Plot

November 21, 2011

Jose Pimentel finds himself in jail today facing bomb-related charges in what police described as a plot to attack police, military personnel and postal facilities.

From CNN:

Police arrested Jose Pimentel, 27, on Sunday at the apartment of a confidential informant in the case when a video camera showed him drilling holes in the pipes that would become the casings for bombs, according to the criminal complaint in the case.

Pimentel allegedly told police he was an hour away from completing his first bomb when he was arrested, according to the complaint.

“Pimentel’s behavior morphed from simply talking about such acts to actions — namely, bomb making,” New York police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

He was arraigned late Sunday night in a New York court on state charges of possession of a bomb for terrorism, conspiracy as a crime of terrorism, soliciting support for a terrorist act, being a felon in possession of a weapon and conspiracy to commit criminal mischief and arson, according to the criminal complaint.

You’ve got to love this one!

A man who broke into a house in Portland, Oregon, called police. The reason: he was afraid the homeowner may have a gun.

From CNN:

The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.

Accompanied by two German shepherds, the homeowner asked Chapek what he was doing in the house.

Chapek locked himself in the bathroom and made an emergency call, police said. He said he had broken into the house, the owner had come home, and that he was concerned the owner might have a gun.

Al Qaeda Chief Beheaded Daniel Pearl

January 20, 2011

According to new reports, a senior al Qaeda leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, personally beheaded Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl back in 2002.

From CNN:

“I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew, Daniel Pearl, in the city of Karachi, Pakistan,” Mohammed said, according to a Pentagon transcript released nearly four years ago. “For those who would like to confirm, there are pictures of me on the Internet holding his head.”

The new report erases any doubts that Mohammed personally carried out the beheading.

September 11: Never Forget

September 11, 2010

I can’t believe that it has been 9 years since the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001.

I can still remember sitting at the airport in Burbank, waiting for my then fiancee, now wife, to land on her flight from San Jose. Quite a few anxious moments!

Where were you when the world stopped turning…that September day?

Not on topic of the trial, but Casey Anthony’s attorney, Cheney Mason, is speaking out about the possible Quran burning in Gainesville, Florida tomorrow.
