The father of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and brutally beheaded in 2002 by alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, was outraged when he heard the news that the Obama administration planned to prosecute his son’s muderer in a Manhattan court.
“I don’t want to hear every morning in the papers what KSM did,” said Judea Pearl to the New York Post, adding that he “was sick to his stomach” over the decision that would allow an admitted terrorist to “boast about his cruelty” in a public forum.
“Danny was killed once. Now he will be killed 10 times a day. Leave him alone.” (NY Post)
