Hook-Handed Pro-Terrorist Cleric Arrested in London (Abu Ghraib Update)

Finally:

May 27 (Bloomberg) -- Police in the U.K. arrested Abu Hamza al-Masri, a Muslim cleric, who has had his U.K. citizenship removed, Sky News reported.

A police statement said a 47-year-old man was arrested during a raid at his home at about 3 a.m. London time. The arrest came after a request from the U.S. government for Abu Hamza's extradition, Sky said, citing the police statement. The man is being held in custody and will appear in a London court today, the Sky report said.

Update! Indicted on eleven counts in US, including conspiracy to kidnap charge. May get the death penalty, or at least life in prison.

Update:

That's what he looks like after being incarcerated at Abu Ghraib.

Here's what he looked like before:

Niles. We tortured Niles.

Is there no limit to our savagery?
