Al Qaeda Video Shows U.S. Hostage
A video showing Warren Weinstein, a 70-year-old American citizen who was kidnapped in Pakistan last year, surfaced on Islamist websites Sunday. β€œMy life is in your hands, Mr. President,” the al Qaeda captive said in the video, addressing President Obama. β€œIf you accept the demands, I live. If you don’t accept the demands, I die.” A development consultant who was kidnapped in the city of Lahore, Weinstein referenced his children and Obama’s daughters in the three-minute impassioned plea for help, asking that the president fulfill a list of eight demands laid out by terrorist leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. The demands include the release of any person charged with belonging to al Qaeda and the Taliban and an end to strikes in Pakistan.
