Pro-Pakistan tribal leader 'would shelter Bin Laden'

Don't act all surprised when a bomb hits your house then.

A pro-government tribal leader hailed by Pakistan for expelling foreign militants from a troubled frontier region said Friday he would protect
Osama bin Laden if he sought shelter with him.

Better build a bunker.

Mullah Mohammad Nazir told a rare press conference in Wana, the main town in South Waziristan tribal district, that he had never met the Al-Qaeda chief but would help him in line with local traditions.

Many people don't know this but it is apparently custom in the Pakistani tribal belt to shelter the world's most wanted criminals.

"Bin Laden has never come to this area but if he comes here and seeks our protection then according to tribal laws and customs we will protect him," the 32-year-old former Taliban commander said.

Did you know that it is American custom to scatter your body parts all over the sand? While I do cringe at the thought of innocent people being killed in US bombings, some people are asking for it. I present the previous as exhibit A.
