Top al Qaeda operative caught in Pakistan
Saturday, March 1, 2003 Posted: 2:04 PM EST (1904 GMT)



Khalid Shaikh Mohammed graduated from North Carolina A&T in 1986.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN) -- The man linked to nearly every al Qaeda terrorist attack in the last 10 years -- including the September 11, 2001 attacks -- was among three suspected al Qaeda operatives arrested Saturday in a house in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, coalition intelligence forces confirmed to CNN.

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was among three suspected al Qaeda members arrested by FBI agents and Pakistani security authorities and taken to the nearby capital of Islamabad on Saturday.

Mohammed's al Qaeda roots run deep and wide. He is believed to have been involved in the terrorist organization since the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

Mohammed, a Kuwaiti national, was indicted in the United States in 1996 for his alleged involvement in a Philippines-based conspiracy to bomb commercial U.S. airliners. That indictment landed him on the FBI's list of 22 Most Wanted Terrorists, issued in October 2001.

Al Qaeda leader Abu Zubaydah, who is in U.S. custody, has named Mohammed as a key financial figure in the September 11 terrorist attacks.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CNN was saying that Pakistani authorities are saying that in the Al Qaeda command, he was the #3 man behind OBL and Abu Zabaydah, who is in U.S. custody.

According to CNN, this was a joing CIA/Pakistani operation that has been going on for a while, and is contiuing. Also that he will be turned over to American authorities and either transferred to Guantanamo or to the U.S. mainland.

This is the stuff going on, in the "underbrush", as it were, that we don't hear about. This is where the war is being fought right now. Kudo's to the CIA and Pakistan for getting this scumbag.

Excellent job by the Pakistani's...again. This guy is supposedly one of the most senior Al-Qaeda members to OBL. I think that perhaps this guy is big break that the CIA needed in order to find OBL.

Good news for a change.

I think we knew all along that Pakistan and Kuwait were harboring Al Quaida men, yet we invaded Afghanistan, and we're preparing to go into Iraq, neither of which had anything to do with 9-11.

It's about oil, and $.

Afghanistan was where bin Laden was being hosted by Mullah Omar....who refused to hand over Bin Laden... hence the "invasion" Toner.
Omar had some other things to say as well.. such as "the storm of airplanes shall not stop" etc.. Thats the connection there buddy.

I hope this sinister character that has just now been captured can be tortured as soon as possible to get more information to hopefully prevent the deaths of more innocents.

This is really great news; not only is this #$@!&% behind bars, but Al Qaeda's morale and infrastructure has probably suffered a huge blow. Of course, they are still very dangerous, but at least they are now a lesser "force" than they were on Sept. 11.

I hope he gets life in a nice US prison! Will be making new "friends" in no time, which would be worse for him than being killed. You know, that story of "martyrdom" and "paradise"... Also, good sign that they (whoever that may be) are still chasing al-Qaeda members.

I love you dorks who continually reference "it's all oil and money", well no shit Sherlock welcome to the real world. The world revolves around oil and money. Let's see you drive your little euro car around with no petrol. We all understand this, so let's get on to the next lame argument.

I just want to scream out at all you bottom dwellers who continually yell out "No justification for war" and "Iraq is innocent". Saddam is a tyrant; he has issued an order to his commanders to use Chemical Weapons if the US attacks him. The same so called Chemical Weapons he professes not to have.

His two sons were trained at an early age to kill, rape and torture. His regime monitors all conversations and kills resistance quickly. There are many true confessions about the murderous exploits of his son's and his regime. The difference of course is this regime has lots of oil and can destabilize a major oil producing region by his exploits. Money and Oil is a factor here so get off your high bicycle-riding ass and accept it.

This is a mess something Germany, France and the USA must deal with. Europe is no cleaner than the USA on the matter of Iraq. This man is dirty by our hands, now it's time to face-fact and deal with this problem.

Do not complicate things this man is dangerous, you know it, now let’s take care of it before he does something desperate. This man is egomaniacal, he has claims he will not be removed by any means even, at the expense of his country.

His people hate him and his military would jump at the chance to rebel. Just like Hitler, this man will punish his country by holding out to the bitter end. I am sure this is something Europe can understand. We have evolved to understand this and let's not let it happen again.

Let's take the tyrant out before it gets beyond control. His military is on the move toward Baghdad, recalled to defend the capital. The longer we stall, the longer they will have to dig in and prepare a chemical defense.

As much as I love to see another terrorist ringleader in custody, another part of me hates to see due process go down the tubes yet again.

I've said it before and will say it again. When you stop using due process to combat terrorism, your civilization gives up on the very values that you are allegedly fighting for.

From your perspective, Sean, I certainly understand what you're saying, but in the case of this nut, I'd just assume letting him rot in hell for what he's done.

But I agree with you wholeheartedly about due process. You look no better than the thugs you're after if it's ignored.

If I was a carbon copy of I LOVE EWR, I would stress that Mohammed visited an American college (just in case he reads this - all other users might pardon my sarcasm).

Well, very, very good work by the Pakistani and American authorities. Honor, where honor is due - I think, both should be mentioned.
