You won’t believe who wrote a letter to the sister of Pakistan’s daughter! The newly-reincarnated Tehrik-e-Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud, who according to Dawn News, sent a letter to Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s sister Fouzia Siddiqui.

Take it away Dawn. (whose report makes the same jump and skip that Hakimullah must be involved in the Times Square car bomb plot)

According to a copy of the letter received exclusively by DawnNews, Hakimullah Mehsud threatened a memorable response against the United States.

The summary of the letter states that Hakimullah Mehsud declared the sister of incarcerated Dr. Afia Siddiqui, Dr Fouzia as her (sic) own sister and assured her of every cooperation.

Now that two of Aafia’s children have apparently been recovered, the family has been fairly quiet. Even if the kids weren’t quite as inclined to believe it, according to this great conversation overheard by Fahad, who was at Fouzia’s house when Aafia’s daughter turned up.

Hakimullah also mentioned Aafia in his latest video update here.
