The FBI and Joe Biden do not know who Lady Al-Qaeda is and why terrorists want her released. Maybe they need to do some research before they spout nonsense.
Lady Al-Qaeda is Aafia Siddiqui, a female terrorist serving an 86-year jail sentence. In 2010, she was indicted in Manhattan on charges that she tried to shoot US military officials while confined in Afghanistan in 2008. She is Pakistani and took up arms against American soldiers in Afghanistan.
Recently an Islamic terrorist-held was hostage inside a Texas synagogue. He requested the release of Aafia Siddiqui. But, thanks to the swift action of the Houston SWAT team, the hostages were released, and the man holding them was killed. Joe Biden and the FBI do not know why this man attempted to harm the people in this synagogue. Once again, it is not hard to explain.
The US Justice Department convicted Siddiqui of being an Al-Qaeda member. It was a colossal conviction, demonstrating the reach of American justice and the ability to kill and capture terrorists and agents of Islamic extremism in the battle against worldwide radicalism.
Many radical Muslims consider her guiltless. They believe her case typified an overeager American legal framework in the War on Terror. She attended Brandeis University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, becoming a top-ranked Pakistani neuroscientist. American law enforcement began attempting to treat terrorism as a legal matter after the September 11, 2001, assaults. The FBI and US Department of Justice called her an Al-Qaeda facilitator.
In 2008, she was discovered in Afghanistan with transcribed notes on the development of alleged dirty bombs. These plans also identified different US areas that could be hit to inflict mass casualties. At an Afghan police compound, she grabbed an M-4 rifle and started shooting at soldiers and intelligence officials nearby but was quickly subdued.
She was indicted in 2010 on charges of trying to kill US soldiers. She claimed that she was perfectly sane and that Islamists want world peace. At the time, Yousuf Raza Gilani, Pakistani prime minister, considered her an example for Pakistani women and promised to lobby for her release. Some Pakistani diplomats have offered trades or arrangements that could bring her home.
Faizan Syed, head of the Dallas-Fort Worth branch of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said Siddiqui is trapped in the conflict. He believes that she is a political detainee who was wrongly charged. But he denounced taking hostages, subverting his endeavors to help Siddiqui.
An Ohio Muslim man, Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, plotted to kill the US military and planned to assault Siddiqui’s jail. In 2018, he was convicted to 22 years in prison himself. Recently, Siddiqui was attacked and injured, per court reports. Siddiqui’s legal advisors filed a suit against the Bureau of Prisons. The claim states that an inmate crushed an espresso cup loaded up with scaling fluid in her face and then punched and kicked her severely, leaving bruises and scars on her face. Indeed, terrorists deserve better treatment than that.
