[Updated at 3:28 p.m. ET] Osama bin Laden's son-in-law, who has served as an al Qaeda spokesman, was captured and has been brought to the United States, two administration officials and a federal law enforcement official said Thursday.
Sulaiman Abu Ghaith is being held in New York, and will appear in court Friday to face federal charges, the law enforcement official said.
A sealed indictment lays out charges against him, the administration officials said.
It seems like we've heard this before. Is this another scare tactic on the american people so we feel urgency in funding homeland security with no cuts for that department?
Yep, a triillion dollar funding at that @chrissy and good morning.
Incidentally & ironically Rep.peter King has been an active sponsor of terrorism himself.
Hmm anotheqp very good reason to make one skeptic when our politicians open their mouths! And good afternoon to you also @ saywhat.
And you can pick your friends but you cant pick your family. Is every member of Bin Ladens family guilty by blood or what???
How are you today ? I didn't get a chance to answer you post the other day, so I'm asking now, Who is going to be the director to get Detroit back in shape ?
I'll be happy to take on the challenge. Detroit is a soaring Phoenix waiting to be reborn.
Lol hey @ bobcat! Dont know for sure but the local news channel announced that Mitt Romney is our ahem esteemed governors 1st choice! Yuk!
@chrissy, get the heck out of Dodge! Romney? Really?? Oh, boy.
WOW, I would have never guessed that one, ever. I guess he'll do his thang and sell it off in pieces and his ill gained profits will end up offshore with the rest.
My recommendation is to open hundreds of higher end restaurants, boutiques, and specialty shops in Detroit. Turn it into a tourist destination and place for upscale visitors. Plant ivy everywhere. Make it into a French city here in the US.
As for the topic, here's hoping some answers to the many questions about OBL can be answered, and here's hoping that the son-in-law doesn't suffer from an untimely 'accident.'
Hey, accidents happen. Hello banasy.
Looks like he is playing the bongo drums in that picture.
So Mitt surfaces again. Great intellect, great handle on affairs even beyond his comprehension, great ideology.lol
Hard luck Detroit.
Unfortunately @banasy with OBL's 'untimely & hasty' demise all possibilities of answers have been put to rest also.
Lol @ banasy, i dont live in Detroit so it wont have any affect on me. One thing for sure he cant be any worse than those before him eh? But what a drop huh, from running the country to running Detroit? Lol
Oh, but if he succeeded in turning Detroit around...what a feather in his cap that would be, chrissy.
But of course, he might have to sell out the rest of Michigan to achieve that, lol.
Lol a kindergardner could turn Detroit around @ banasy. Its pretty easy, just quit stealing the money. That and kindergardeners dont know what racketeering is yet.
And he wont be totally in charge. He has to report to the governor.
