Bin-Laden's Son-in-Law to be Arraigned in New York

Suleiman Abu-Ghaith, the son of eliminated Al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama Bin-Laden, is scheduled to be arraigned, Friday in New York, on charges of conspiring to kill Americans. It was reported, Thursday, that the United States Central Intelligence Agency captured Abu-Ghaith as he made his way from Jordan to Kuwait, where he had been stripped of his citizenship after he appeared in videos praising the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States and threatened more violence.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said, in a statment, "No amount of distance or time will weaken our resolve to bring America's enemies to justice. To violent extremists who threaten the American people and seek to undermine our way of life, this arrest sends an unmistakable message: There is no corner of the world where you can escape from justice because we will do everything in our power to hold you accountable to the fullest extent of the law."
