Al-Qaida Hostage Begs For Obama’s Help, A video of an American citizen kidnapped in Pakistan last year was released online late Sunday, showing the hostage making a desperate plea to President Barack Obama.
“My life is in your hands, Mr. President,” Warren Weinstein, the 70-year-old hostage, said in the two-minute video, posted on several Islamist websites. “If you accept the demands, I live. If you don’t accept the demands, then I die.”
According to CNN, those demands listed by Al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri include:
The lifting of the blockade on the movement of people and trade between Egypt and Gaza
An end to bombing by the United States and its allies in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Gaza
The release of anyone arrested on charges of belonging to al Qaida and the Taliban
The release of all prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and American secret prisons and the closure of Guantanamo and the other prisons
The release of terrorists convicted in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center
The release of relatives of Osama bin Laden
Weinstein, a development consultant living in Pakistan, was reportedly kidnapped from his home last August. Al-Qaida later claimed responsibility for the abduction.
