Public Court

Daniel Pearl’s Dad 'Sick' Over Trial

Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was executed by captors in Pakistan in 2002, and now that one of the admitted 9/11 masterminds is going on trial, Pearl’s father says the idea of an open court in New York City makes him “sick to the stomach.” Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who publicly took credit for Pearl’s murder, is set to begin a public trial, which Pearl views as an opportunity for Mohammed to “boast about his cruelty.” Pearl added, “I don’t want to hear every morning in the papers what KSM did. Danny was killed once. Now he will be killed 10 times a day. Leave him alone.”
