Officials: Bin Laden's son-in-law captured

[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?

      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.'

    Unfortunately @banasy with OBL's 'untimely & hasty' demise all possibilities of answers have been put to rest also.

      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.
