From 9/11 to Pearl Project

Monday, January 24, 2011

In Washington, a journalistic investigation funded by an Oklahoma City foundation concluded a link between the terroristic acts of 9/11 and the 2002 kidnapping of the late Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

After a much awaited three years of research, Georgetown University students have finally come to a verdict of the killer of Daniel Pearl. al-Qaeda leader Khalid Sheikh Mohammed confessed to murdering Pearl almost nine years ago in Pakistan. The reason his story is so significant is because they broadcasted his beheading to the entire United States.

They identified Mohammed as the man behind the knife while looking back at the actual murder video and comparing veins on both hands of the unknown killer and that of Mohammed's.

Along with this horrendous act, Mohammed is also known as the man who helped plan the attacks of 9/11. He currently is being held at Guantanamo Bay, but has not currently been charged for the murder of Pearl.

I for one am happy to know that the man that has affected thousands of American lives has been caught and put away. It's amazing how people would go to so much trouble and effort to bring pain upon others.
