No one has claimed responsibility for the abduction. Sanuallah implied that Weinstein was a spy.
“We suspect that he was involved in intelligence gathering because we offered him a police escort, deployed police at his house, but he resisted our attempts,” he said. Express Tribune, Aug. 18, 2011
Suddenly, a lot is being made about the reported killing of U.S. citizen and al Qaeda “hostage” Warren Weinstein in Pakistan a couple months ago during a drone strike carried out by the CIA (see here, here, here and here).
President Obama through a statement has claimed his death was accidental and that they didn’t know he and a fellow hostage were being held in that building they targeted back in January. He says he is deeply sorry for the mistake.
I covered this story a couple days ago because at the same time they reported this “mistake” the White House also mentioned they killed a fake al Qaeda spokesman, a Jewish man by the name of Adam Gadahn who was born Adam Pearlman and lived with his paternal grandfather, a member of the ADL and a rabid Zionist.
So who was this “aid worker” who really worked as a contractor for USAID in Pakistan trying to bring the marvels of neoliberal economic austerity and fascism to the people of that country and why was he killed by the CIA?
