I was surprised when I heard that the terrorists in the Algeria siege had demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui. Killing innocent people as they did , I have no empathy with these cold blooded murderers but the disgusting treatment of Aafia and any attempt to free her should be applauded in other circumstances. Her family have rejected any association with the Algerian terrorists and have indeed completely condemned their actions.
Aafia Siddiqui’s plight has been largely ignored by the mainstream media and if they have reported on it , they have put her in a negative light even though the facts surrounding her case and the extraordinary claims by the Americans would lead us to a different conclusion.
A long overdue review should be ordered in this lady’s …. And the soldiers who claim that a frail half dead woman could try to seize a weapon from them be brought to book over their lies.
