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.

    Oh K hamsta. (if that's your real name) But nobody is going to take your word over those of a Prentice Award Merit Class 1 FDNY Fire investigator. And even a child can see that the jet engine found on the ground at the Pentagon didn't go on flight 77s jumbo jet. Not the same engine. And what's funny is, the men who planned this out knew that many of US would find-out the truth. It's as if they didn't even try very hard to cover it up. I think that they understood what the national Adult Literacy Survey 2001-2006 revealed. Most american's just aren't that bright these days. Give 'em a loaf of bread and a tv...good to go.

    @Bobcat. I'm not "saying" that. I'm reporting it to you. And no, they didn't replace anything. It was a DU missile that hit, not a jumbo jet. They brought the engine out of the building under the cover of smoke. They wanted everyone to believe that a jumbo jet strolled into the most heavily guarded building in human history. But yeah. They didn't even bother planting the same exact kind of engine found on flight 77. (google 'missile not flight 77' and start reading. Overwhelming and irrefutable(how to spell?) evidence.

    I believe psychological warfare would be the right terminology to use regarding the topics discussed today.
    I also believe everyone can agree this has been used with in every nation on earth at one time or another.
    Today tho, some call it a Conspiracy theory.

    Oopsy. I think the National Adult Literacy Survey, a 5 year 14 million dollar study of we the people, ran from 2002-2006 altogether. Anyway, about 1/4th of adult citizens cannot gather simple information from text. They don't read much, and so have troubles when they do read. They "get it" if it's on TV every single time. And the study revealed that the avg. adult comprehends information delivered at the 8th grade reading level. If you are speaking as if a 10th grader, you are losing some of your audience. India and China do not seem to be having these same problems. They are getting fatter these days butstill producing like all get-out. But not epidemic obeisity/deep deep debt like US. Hay! Let's make 'em like US over there! What say?

    Guess what?
    All of the crap put up on the net is slanted one way or another.

    I just get extremely irritated with people who have nothing better to do try and undermine the deaths that my family (and many others) have had to endure.

    If one wants empathy and sympathy for what they went through when they were younger they had better god damned well give it to others who endured sh!t just ten short years ago.

    You know there are people that are going to believe everything on the internet. After all people wouldn't put opinionated statements out there would they ?
    I guess you have to be deep into that spy vs. spy crap to believe all these conspiracies. I mean afterall everything that happens,just have to have a deeper meaning, right ?
