Questions Continue Over Five U.S. Men Held In Pakistan

December 27, 2009

Pakistan (ChattahBox) – Five American men have been caught and detained in Pakistan, where it is now believed they were planning on attacking a nuclear site.

The five men, hailing from Washington D.C., were allegedly looking for materials and planning an attack on the site.

The entire case is straining the already tentative relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan as Pakistani authorities move to open an investigation and charge them with planning and attempting terrorist activities.

U.S. officials want to bring the men home, where they will likely face charges in our own investigation. While they will almost certainly be extradited back to American soil, a charge from Pakistan could significantly slow the process.

It is not completely clear if what they are being charged with is the case, and the official story has been changing a great deal, leaving many worried about the state of local politicians who are pushing for an investigation.

It has also created fears of Americans going overseas to train as terrorists.

    They should get questioned by Pakistani gov/forces before they get shipped back home and if they ve committed offence they should get prosecuted in Pakistan.
    Same way how they would deal with threat to there country.
    for example GONTANAMO BAY prison.
