The US Department of State has issued multi-million dollar rewards for two senior Taliban leaders and an al Qaeda leader and propagandist.
Up to $5 million dollars has been offered "for information leading to the location and/or capture" of Pakistani Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud or Taliban and al Qaeda ally Sirajuddin Haqqani. A $1 million bounty has been offered for information leading to the capture or conviction of al Qaeda propagandist and ideologue Abu Yahya al Libi.

It worked on Ben. (sarc)
I guess they haven’t heard, $5 million just isn’t $5 million any more.
I thought offering a herd of goats worked better?
Guantanamo was a violation of the Geneva and Hague Conventions, but this Bounty is NOT??? LOL. What a joke!
“...and the bounty stands at two cents!”
“Abu Yahya al-Libi: The Real Brains Behind AQ”
SNIPPET: “This means that the whole ballgame has changed. Revolution against the Pakistani government is no longer an internal matter. Abu Yahya tries to put the need for global involvement in Pakistan on par with other global fronts like Iraq and Afghanistan.
In other words, Abu Yahya uses this essay to fundamentally reconceptualize the nature of warfare in Pakistan. It is no longer about Pakistan simply having apostate leadership, it is about Pakistan being ruled by the religious equivalent of non-Muslims foreign occupiers.
Uggh..this guy is good.”
