As CNN report, http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/03/12/shaikh.reward/index.html an Egyptian Al-Qaeda foot soldier is being payed $27million for ratting out Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (one of the top guys in Al-Qaeda) last month. And it infuriates me even more was that not only did he want his family out with him but $2million travel expenses to move them all AND he is moving to the UK!

Well, firstly IMHO he should have been executed once every ounce of information was squeezed out of him, and IF they feel my suggestion is too brutal then surely let him get off by commuting his sentence to life in prison - NOT let him AND his damn family come to the UK and breed their scum here & give them the chance the reorganise & regroup!!!!! Why is the US giving these terrorists money? Innocent taxpayers' money, money from victims' families that directly suffered as a result of terrorist acts....I dont understand this strategy when it comes to terrorists who are wanted for acts of terror that affect people around the globe. Now, I can see how it may seem nice that the US are paying to get these people off the streets for the whole world but they seem happy to pay other terrorists to do so, that just doesnt sound right to me....!

Maybe this was a 27 million dollar investment in Al-Quaeda? I sure hope not.

the us shouldnt give him a penny. Ig he gets granted alsyum in the Uk all hell will break lose. Whilst i am loathed to agree with the daily mail position on aslym i believe that their view will get stronger support if this happens.

It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit

That was the deal - you get all that money for ratting on Sheikh Mohammed. I think it is very fair IMHO. It's no different to paying police informants

I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I think there should be a poster with WANTED in large letters and the guy's mugshot and $25M* reward below it, and at the very bottom of the poster in tiny near-unreadable letters saying * subject to terms and conditions & 1 of them being the money cannot be given to any other terrorist or criminal of the law!  Big grin

My feeling on this clown getting all that money is this. Other Al-Q members might see that this guy actually did get 25 plus million for giving info that lead to the arrest of a top Al-Q member, and others might even decide to give up evidence in hopes of money, maybe even giving up Osama himself. Remember, Green, aka money rules.

If we don't pay the money, then offering rewards would never work again in the future. The U.S. must keeps its word if we're going to continue to gain intelligence in this manner.

Would be amusing if other Al-Queda took the $ for giving info, what was all that about the pure warriors of Islam against the corrupt, materialistic West we heard so much about?

Gentlemen, it's a trick called bribery, and it works very well.

Well said Mike.
The trick is to pay them more to talk than the other guy pays them to not talk (in cases like this that means paying them more than they value their own life of course).

After that, you could always arrange for "an accident", but I don't think the FBI is into that (though who knows whether they have unofficial contacts with organisations in other countries that will do it for them).

I wish I were flying
