Five Americans Reportedly Held in Pakistan on Terror Charges

Islamabad, Pakistan - Five people arrested in Pakistan had been reported missing in the United States, and police are confident they were planning terrorist acts, a Pakistani police official told media.

It is too soon to link the men with any terrorist organizations, said Tahir Gujjrar, deputy superintendent of police in Sargodha, Pakistan, but preliminary investigations suggest they had sought to link up with the Jaish-e-Mohammed and Jamaat ud Dawa militant organizations.

  • If they are terrorists, let the Pakistanis have 'em. Apparently, the U.S. only handles criminal suspects and domestic extremists these days.

  • the obvious fact that they are members of that illusive make believe "Hyphenated-American" nation is a dead giveaway to being an enemy of the Republic of the United States.

    Tue Americans - whatever their origins - are ONLY AMERICAN! the rst are only sheeples and slaves of the progressive socialists following the olf war rule of DIVIDE and CONQUER!

    Well guess what progressives ... WE HAVE NEVER SURRENDERED and we are STILL ARMED!
