5 Americans sentenced in Pakistan on terror charges

Five Americans arrested on terror charges in Pakistan have been sentenced to 15 years each, the deputy prosecutor said Thursday.

The men, who have been dubbed the "D.C. Five," will also have to pay a fine of 75,000 Pakistani rupees ($878), Deputy Prosecutor General Rana Bukhtar Ali said.

They have the right to appeal to the Lahore High Court, he said.

    I love how your all for killing them. Yes they want to harm america. But in america people have rights. You don't kill people unless they have killed sum1. I think all of you crazy people should be deported to pakistan or afghanistan so they can have their way with you.++and whoever said these people are not americans, ur a moron. Its a known fact.++and for the MORON that think OBL didn't do 9/11 and our gov't did it to ourselves, why does OBL take credit for it and strive to do it again? He's hiding in caves from us.

    – I heard a phrase a long time ago that "one way to get big is to stay small". And I believe that is exactly what the "homegrown" terrorist have done. After sept. 11, I noticed that there was such a FLOOD of "foreigners from these countries" suddenly employed at the gas stations, small convenient stores and ect.! Of course these were/are places in lower class areas. Obviously unnoticed by our rich government? I definetely noticed it! I really want to have all the faith in our country to protect us, but if the government don't keep watch out in the lower class areas as well as they do in the middle and upper class, then the terrorist may very well get to us and they're gonna get us good!!

    A true Muslim has nothing to do with terrorism. Anyone can terrorize the world and claim to be a muslim. Let's get the religion out of the picture and get to the real facts. These mother f****** who claims to be muslims are actually beyond EVIL's imagination. Their goal is to take over the world which I don't see is the reality. They have grown beards which makes them even look more devilish. These fu**ers have done nothing but damages to the humane sociaty.
