Radical Islamist in Pakistan becomes bellicose

The Associated Press reports a very alarming story by Ishtiaq Mashud about a bellicose “threat” to the United States homeland by radical Islamist Baitullah Mehsud, who has a $5 million reward out for his capture. He claimed responsibility for a deadly attack against a Pakistani government police academy, and wants to avenge against US missile and perhaps drone attacks in the tribal border areas with Afghanistan. The link is here.

An earlier version by Babar Dogar was printed in the Washington Times March 31 on p A14.

Sara A. Carter and Eli Lake have a similar later story on the Taliban's latest rant in the April 1, 2009 Washington Times, link here. It says that the FBI has issued alerts nationwide.
