It turns out that a month ago, the United States tried to apprehend Haroon Rashid Aswat, the terrorist suspected of involvement in the London bombings and just arrested in Zambia, only to have the British Government say no.
UPDATE: FoxNews reports that a "U.S. official insisted that a formal request was never made to the South African government or the British government" for Aswat to be detained. This, if true, just stuns me. The guy was wanted for questioning, why wouldn't we ask for him to be taken into custody?
Good question. Let's see if the answer is forthcoming.
