Here is what our paper says this morning:
"The PakTribune reported that members of [the scientist's] family had sought help from theTaliban after she was convicted Wednesday by a Manhattan jury of attempting to murder U.S. soldiers while in custody in Afghanistan in July, 2008.I am so, so sad. I do not even know him personally, but I think about the situation all the time. I am not even religious but I find myself saying little prayers for him during the day.
'Being Muslims, it becomes our religious and moral obligation to help the distressed Pakistani woman convicted by the U.S. on false charges,' the Taliban commander was quoted as saying. ... 'Since [Bowe] has confessed to all charges against him, our Islamic court has announced death sentence for him.'"
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
