Knock, Knock, Knockin' On Terror's Door: Osama's Security Chief Captured UPDATES


Remember that oldie but goodie tune with Paul McCartney? Let 'Em In?
Someone's knockin' at the door, Somebody's ringin' the bell. Someone's knockin' at the door, Somebody's ringin' the bell. Do me a favor, Open the door and let 'em in.

Bill Roggio at The Long War Journal, Pat Dollard and Fox are reporting that Osama's security chief has been nabbed and is in custody. The turban wearing turd was nabbed in Pakistan.

A senior al Qaeda commander has been reported to have been captured in the Pakistani city of Lahore, according to a Pakistani newspaper. Dr. Amin al Haq, the security coordinator of Osama bin Laden's Black Guard, "was apprehended from Lahore couple of days back," The Nation reported, citing "credible Afghan sources." Al Haq is said to be "under interrogation" at an undisclosed location. [...]
The alleged security coordinator and bodyguard for Al Qaeda terror chieftain Usama bin Laden was arrested in Pakistan sometime last week, the influential newspaper The Nation reported Monday.
Amin al-Haq, 48, also known under the alias Dr. Amin Ah Haq, was arrested last week in Lahore during a special police operation and is being interrogated by Pakistani intelligence, the newspaper reported citing an anonymous law enforcement source.

Pakistani officials have not yet confirmed the arrest.

The Jawa Report
I was just checking this out over at The Long War Journal when Birddog 26 e-mailed this Fox News report. Both Roggio's piece and the Fox News story are based on this unsubstantiated report from The Nation claiming that Dr. Amin Al Haq, who is described variously as a "bodyguard" for bin Laden and "security chief" for al Qaeda, was arrested.

But the most interesting part? He was arrested in Lahore. Any quick map search of Pakistan will show you that Lahore is not "tribal" Pakistan or one of the "lawless" regions where Pashtun is the main language making them ethnically related to the Afghans who made up the majority of the Taliban and their supporters. It is smack dab in the middle of Punjab and is the second largest city in the country.

The implication of this should be immediately obvious: if one of bin Laden's closest aides was busy hiding out in plain site in the middle of Pakistan's second largest city, and bin Laden is still alive, then maybe bin Laden is, as I mentioned just this morning, "in Karachi directing al Qaeda from the comfort of the top floor of a luxury apartment complex."
