An 11-year-old boy detained with a Pakistani woman accused of trying to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan is believed to be her son, U.S. prosecutors said in a court letter obtained on Tuesday.
U.S.-trained neuroscientist and al Qaeda suspect Aafia Siddiqui, 36, was arrested in Afghanistan in mid-July and flown to New York earlier this month to be charged with attempting to kill and assault U.S. soldiers.
The details of what this woman was supposed to have done are still very unclear.
Notice that in the second paragraph she is charged with "attempting to kill and assault US soldiers", emphasis on attempting.
One thing is clear. Apparently, the days of Abu Ghraib are over, where parents were forced to watch the torture and humiliation of their children to get them to say what their interrogators wanted to hear are over; now, the US simply imprisons kids as "leverage" to get their parents to say whatever the interrogators want them to hear.
