[size=4]Pearl Case Suspect Issues Warning[/size=4] KARACHI, Pakistan- The defiant, alleged mastermind of the kidnap-slaying of Wall Street Journal correspondent Daniel Pearl warned Tuesday that Americans will suffer if he is sent to the United States, shouting to bystanders after a court appearance that [b]"America will be finished soon."[/b] Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh and co-defendant Sheikh Mohammed Adeel appeared Tuesday before a judge, who gave the government another 10 days to continue its investigation before setting a trial date. Saeed's lawyer, Khwaja Naveed, claimed police have fabricated evidence and asked the court to set a date for the trial or release his client. The United States also has expressed interest in trying the British-born Islamic militant, but Pakistan says he must stand trial here first. Pearl, the Journal's South Asia correspondent, was kidnapped in Karachi on Jan. 23 while researching links between Pakistani extremists and Richard C. Reid, arrested in December with explosives in his shoe on the flight between Paris and Miami. Last month, a videotape received by the U.S. Consulate in Karachi confirmed Pearl was dead. His body has not been found and some suspects remain at large. Saeed and Adeel, their faces covered by scarves, arrived in court in an armored personnel carrier accompanied by nine police vehicles for the closed-door hearing. [b]According to chief prosecutor Raja Quereshi, [u]Saeed told Judge Shabbir Ahmed that if he were sent to the United States, he would return to Pakistan as he did from India[/u] - a reference to his release by Indian authorities in December 1999 in exchange for passengers and crew of an Indian Airlines jet hijacked to Afghanistan. [b]Saeed also warned that if he were killed in a "fake encounter at the behest of America," Americans would "suffer the consequences," Quereshi said.[/b] As police bundled him into the armored vehicle for the trip back to jail, Saeed shouted [b]"Sell your dollars because America will be finished soon!"[/b] The prosecution asked the court for more time to find Pearl's body, retrieve the murder weapon, complete interrogation and receive an FBI report on the grisly videotape. * * * Saeed was arrested before the videotape was received. At his first hearing, he admitted to his role in the kidnapping but later recanted. The statement is inadmissible because it was not made under oath. The three other suspects were arrested Jan. 30 after the FBI and police traced the e-mails to a laptop belonging to one of them, Fahad Naseem. Naseem confessed and said Saeed told him three days before the kidnapping that he planned to abduct someone who is "anti-Islam and a Jew." * * * Much of the case appears to hang on the testimony of Naseem and a taxi driver, Nasir Abbas, who told police he saw Pearl shake hands with Saeed and get into a car in front of a Karachi restaurant on the night he disappeared. U.S. officials confirm they would like to prosecute Saeed, but there is no extradition treaty between the two countries. Saeed has not been indicted for the Pearl kidnap-slaying in the United States. Officials of the two governments are studying ways he could be handed over eventually in accordance with the laws. * * * See article at:[url]http://www.lasvegassun.com/sunbin/stories/w-asia/2002/mar/12/031200745.html[/url] Eric The(Yes,BringHisAssHere!)Hun[>]:)]

Why would we want him?? Pakistan's prisons are much more unpleasant than America's "three hots and a cot" motels. And if you think a jury would vote him the death penalty, well, ok, so 15 years from now he might get executed IF some leftist judge doesn't find some technicality on which to free him. Who needs it? Let him rot in Pakistan.

How could the United States prosecute someone for a crime committed outside US territory?

I think a US prison would be worse--and more humiliating--for him. He is rich enough that in Pakistan he will get preferential treatment, like a drug lord in a Columbian jail. Of course he deserves to hang. GunLvr

Give him his requisite "due process." A bullet to the head. Now.

iwould like to see some aryan skinnhead prisoners take him in the broom closet and make a play ground out of his ass, every day just after dinner.

If he cant be stuffed feet first into a mulcher and his remains fed to hungry swine... I would take matsd's option. Put him in general, hell go TRY putting him in solitary. Didn't do Dahmer any good.

First we're going to give him a fair trial, and then we're going to hang him..... [b]"America will be finished soon.."[/b] No, it's going to take us a couple more years to be finished with you assholes....although we, (as much as [u]you[/u]) would like to get it over with sooner.

Yep, all you have to do is let them know who he is and where he is from. Would not last very long at all.[IMG]http://www.duhspot.com/users/smiley/s/contrib/constrector/stabed.gif[/IMG]

Yes, the victim was a US citizen, but I still don't see how that gives any US court jurisdiction. If a Pakistani citizen were kidnapped and killed in the United States, would we extradite the suspects to Pakistan for trial?

This is going to be a tough war. The most difficult America has ever seen. Maybe also the bloodiest war we have ever been in. It won't be just combatants as has already been proved. I keep asking how many Radical Muslims live in this country?? These sons of bitches fight like the Japanese. They need to Bring Norman SwartzKapf out of retirement, and start setting up shop for IRAQ. Benjamin
