"The post-9/11 war on terrorism has many mysteries buried deep inside.
1. "The first mystery is about Omar Sheikh, the alleged master-mind behind the kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl, the journalist of the 'Wall Street Journal'.
"He was sentenced to death by a court in Pakistan, but his sentence has not been executed.
"The hearing on his appeal against the sentence has been adjourned over a hundred times till now.
"He is the fittest case for interrogation in Guantanamo Bay, but, for some strange reasons, the US authorities have shown no interest in getting hold of him and taking him to Guantanamo Bay for interrogation to find out the real truth about the kidnapping and murder of Pearl.
2. "The second mystery is about the arrest by the Pakistani authorities in August 2006 of Rashid Rauf, a Briton of Mirpuri origin, who is related by marriage to Maulana Masood Azhar, the Amir of the Jaish-e-Mohammad.
"He was projected as one of the master-minds of the Bojinka-2006 plot and as the man, who tipped off the Pakistani authorities about the plot.
"No serious attempt was made by the British police to get hold of him, take him to the UK and interrogate him.
"He escaped from Pakistani custody in December, 2007."
Pakistani President, Pervez Musharraf, in his book In the Line of Fire stated Omar Sheikh was originally recruited by British intelligence agency, MI6, while studying at the London School of Economics.
He alleges Omar Sheikh was sent to the Balkans by MI6 to engage in jihadi operations. - aangirfan: Omar Sheikh
