Pakistani police: 3 Germans arrested in raid

Three German citizens, including a German army colonel, were arrested in a police raid Saturday in the northern Pakistani city of Peshawar, authorities said.

Police official Mian Saeed said the three men had set up an office in the city without the permission of either the Pakistani or the German government.

He said police raided the office and asked the men to provide the necessary paperwork showing their legal status in the country. When they couldn't provide the paperwork, they were taken into custody, Saeed said.

    The german intelligence may be monitoring the terrorist groups such as AQ or LeT but Pakistanis want to save them so that they can keep getting billions of $s of aid from uncle sam.

    The US doesn't have "billions of dollars" in aid money. We have trillions of dollars in public debt. Nobody goes down to the bank to borrow money to donate to charity, incl. the US government. Uncle Sam likes to act like the richest most-charitable, but in reality he's just broke/deep in debt just as his people are.

  4. Yeah, right.

    70 million citizens whose only source of income is welfare. Millions more living off of fraudulently obtained social security and military disability. Billions of dollars swindled from each other through various scams from ENRON to mail fraud. A very generous people you say? Or a crooked generation nearing it's end.

  5. Yeah, right.

    What do you call an old man deep in debt who borrows money to donate to charity as his own children go hungry and his own bills go unpaid. Most of you call him Uncle Same donating billions to Pakistan. I call him a war monger who has squandered his childrens inheritance and is now going-around trying to look concerned and generous.

  7. Patriotism to end soon.

    What could possibly have the worlds citizenry happily burning their own flags in support of a One World Government? What could POSSIBLY cause you to abandon the idea of a free America in support of a One World Military?

  8. Patriotism to end soon.

    Imagine, if you will, NASA reporting a fleet of Alien Flying Saucers on their way to attack the earth. They are still months from getting here, and it looks like they are armed to the teeth. For the earth to prevail, the earth must combine it's military forces. I submit that every single flying saucer seen since WWII are man made. 9/11 scared you into giving-up much of your American freedom. Flying saucers over D.C. will have you begging for defense and willing to give-up anything to save your own ass. That saucer found by the FBI crashed near Roswell/Area 51 was none other than a Nazi BMW model J38 flying saucer. One of several types of which thousands were manufactured in secret underground facilities found and captured after the war. They didn't just go Poof!

  9. Patriotism to end soon.

    Why did 8% of the Colorado River's water flow to Mexico after WWII? The Nazis had approached the Mexican government and tried to bribe them into allowing Mexican air bases to be used for launching Nazi flying saucers over America. The US gov countered their offer with offering 8% of the Colorado River. Mexico went with the water. Nazi flying saucers were never transported to nor launched from Mexico. In fact, none of them were spotted outside of German held territories until AFTER the war where hundreds have been spotted over America and Russia. You can watch actual film fottage of 'nazi flying saucers' on Youtube. Flying saucers are all man made.

    Yeah, some bimmmers are nice. Nothing like cruising down Newport Blvd. in one of Mike Tyson's old 850i's. He had three of them that he had restored at Private Exotic Autos in Santa Ana while he was in prison. But the BMW J38 saucer had 12 jet engines. That's 12 more than the allied American forces had. Skoda made one that generated it's own gravitational field! Some Nazi saucers were huge machines weighing like 20 tons each. Anyway, laugh all ya want. Those hundreds of eyewitness accounts of flying saucers over America are genuine accounts of man-made saucers.

    @ obl

    Billions of dollars in aid? Where did you get that info?
    According to the Kerry-Berman-Lugar Bill passed by Congress in 2009, Pakistan was to get dollars 5 billion in aid, they havn't yet recieved that. So what aid are you going to withhold from them?

    We are desperately looking for an exit strategy in Afghanistan ( just yesterday we lost 6 of our Marines) and now focusing on peace talks with Taliban. That cannot happen without taking Afghans & Pakistan on board.
    What we need is some sanity here.

      I couldn't agree more, saywhat.
      I am all for getting our troops out of Afghanistan.
      This is not a very popular opinion on here, but I don't care anymore:

      Bring Our Troops Home.

      Now, back to the thread:

      What was the goal of these three Germans?
      This is really a non-story to me, because even here in the USA, one just can't open up a business without the proper paperwork...did they really think they could just open up a business and nobody would notice?
      The full story link didn't have any more information.
