According to an article in yesterday's L.A. Times (also available here), the leader of a Pakistani Al Qaeda camp where two men recently arrested in California allegedly trained is not a Pakistani politician, as I suggested a couple of weeks ago. The Times explains:
The federal complaint identified the head of the camp as Maulana Fazlur Rehman, which is the name of a Pakistan government opposition party member. But several U.S. officials said that most likely, the leader of the camp is the similarly named Maulana Fazlur Rehman Khalil, the longtime Bin Laden associate and former leader of HuM [Harkat-ul-Mujahedin], who Pakistani authorities said has gone into hiding after news of the Lodi case broke.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman Khalil was arrested in May 2004 for allegedly sending militants to Afghanistan; he was released seven or eights months later and has reportedly gone into hiding in recent days. His organization, HuM, was subsequently known as Jamiatul Ansar; his near-namesake's political party is called Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam. I try, folks, but guess I screwed this one up.
