UK: Al Qaeda Operative Abid Naseer Extradited To America!


Abid lost his appeal Heartache for him, cornhole watch for us!


A man accused of leading an al-Qaeda plot to set off bombs in Manchester has been extradited to the US.

Abid Naseer has been described by a High Court judge as an "al-Qaeda operative" who "poses a serious threat to the national security of the UK".

UK prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to charge him.

However, the US wants to put him on trial, arguing the Manchester plot was part of a wider conspiracy to also bomb New York.

In December his bid to stop the extradition was thrown out of the European Court of Human Rights, where his lawyers had argued he could be tortured if returned to Pakistan from the US[..]

The removal of Mr Naseer follows three months after Abu Hamza al-Masri[ Hook Hamza...ed], Babar Ahmad[ Webmaster..ed] and three other terrorism suspects were finally extradited to the US after years of legal wrangling.

They will stand trial later this year. If convicted, Mr Naseer faces a possible life sentence in a supermax prison.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "We can confirm that today Abid Naseer was extradited to America where he is accused of terrorism offences. His case is now a matter for the US authorities.".

1 Why aren't these asshole terrorists being shot or hanged, rather than jailed? That was a rhetorical question. The government is a bunch of cowards crawling with leftist lawyers.

4 This news made me happy until I realized another one will take his place. Terrorism should be an automatic death penalty given within one year max. I just isn't worth keeping these guys in prison. It expensive and they won't change. If let out they will go back to doing what they were doing only with payback in mind. If a person can receive the death penalty for murder why not planning to murder. In this, even the Muslims are ahead of us.
