    Britain's Lord Nazir Ahmed Offers £10 Million Bounty for Obama, Bush

    A member of the House of Lords puts up a bounty for the capture of one former and one sitting US President:

    During a recent visit to Pakistan, Lord Nazir Ahmed, a member of the British House of Lords who originally hails from Pakistani Kashmir, announced he was putting up a bounty of £10 million for the capture of U.S. President Barack Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush. The announcement, made at a conference held in the Pakistani town of Haripur, came in response to a recent U.S. announcement offering a $10 million reward to anyone providing information leading to the capture of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, founder of the Pakistani jihadi organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), and emir of LeT's charity arm, Jamaatud Dawa.[1]


    Stressing the seriousness of his offer, Lord Ahmed said he would back the bounty at any cost, even if it meant selling his house. Qazi Muhammad Asad, minister for education in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial government, was among those present at the conference at which the announcement was made.

    If it's true then I hope the CIA or Secret Service does something about it. Such things inspire terrorists and this man should be severely punished if what was quoted is true.

    Oh, I'm sure he does. At the link above, there are excerpts from the Pakistani press, however:

    Following are excerpts from a report on the announcement that appeared in the Pakistani daily The Express Tribune:[2]
    "In an expression of solidarity with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, British parliamentarian of Kashmiri origin Lord Nazir Ahmed has announced a reward for the [capture] of U.S. President Barack Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush.


    "He made the announcement at a reception arranged in his honor by the business community of Haripur on Friday [April 13, 2012]. Former [Pakistani] foreign minister Goher Ayub Khan, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl's (JUI-F) central leader Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, and [Khyber Pakhtunkhwa] Provincial Minister for Education Qazi Muhammad Asad were also present [at] the occasion.


    "Lord Nazir said that the bounty placed on Saeed was an insult to all Muslims, and [that] by [offering it], President Obama has challenged the dignity of the Muslim ummah.


    "'If the U.S. can announce a reward of $10 million for the [capture] of Hafiz Saeed, I can announce a bounty of £10 million [for the capture of] President Obama and his predecessor, George Bush,' Lord Nazir said, adding that he would arrange the bounty at any cost, even if he was left with the option of selling all his personal assets, including his house..."

    No, it's not the same thing, but why would a Pakistani paper make such a thing up? Those quotes are awfully specific.

    Who knows? Why would a British paper hack into the voicemail of a murdered schoolgirl? There are some scummy journalists out there. Mind you, I'm not prejudging this matter. He might have said it, but I'm not going to take a journalist's word for it that he did.

    Most definitely, Bush needs to stand trial, Obama needs to answer for extralegal droning in pak.

    .... Why would Islamist media make this up? The media in Islamist countries never makes anything up.

    This guy is pretty outrageous. A few years back apparently he was texting at the wheel, and had an accident which killed someone. He spent 16 days in jail, then strings were pulled and he was released. I suspect he said exactly what is being alleged. I also doubt they'll be able to prove it, since witnesses are all in Pakistan.
