British Member of Parliament puts $16 million bounty on Bush, Blair, (Obama?)
By Jamie Weinstein | DailyCaller.com
British Lord Nazir Ahmed put a Ł10 million ($16 million) bounty on both President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush Friday, according to The Express Tribune, an English language Pakistani newspaper.
Nazir, who is of Pakistani heritage and a member of the British House of Lords, reportedly made the comments while at a reception in Haripur, a Pakistani city 4o miles north of Islamabad. Nazir told the audience that he was putting the bounty out for the capture of the American leaders in response to the bounty placed on Hafiz Muhammad Saeed by the United States.
“If the U.S. can announce a reward of $10 million for the captor of Hafiz Saeed, I can announce a bounty of 10 million pounds on President Obama and his predecessor George Bush,” Nazir reportedly said.
Saeed is widely believed to be the head of the Pakistani based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which was responsible for the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, India that killed more than 160 innocents including six Americans. After the 2008 attacks, Saeed denied being connected to the terrorist group. In April, the U.S. government announced a $10 million reward for information leading to his capture in connection to the attacks.
According to The Express Tribune, Nazir said the bounty on Saeed was a grave insult to all Muslims and that he would sell his house if necessary to obtain the funds necessary to pay the bounty he placed on Obama and Bush.
The Pakistani report was brought to the attention of The Daily Caller by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Sterling offer: Lord Nazir suspended by Labour Party
"The Lord also offered a similar incentive for the capture of former US president George Bush in response to a US reward for the capture of suspected terrorist Hafiz Muhammad Saeed."
Britain’s Labour Party suspended Lord Nazir Ahmed after a report on Sunday quoted him as offering Ł10 million ($15.9 million) for the capture and trial of UK and US leaders in retaliation to the $10 million offered by the US for the capture and trial of religious leader Hafiz Saeed.
“If these comments are accurate we utterly condemn these remarks which are totally unacceptable … The international community is rightly doing all in its power to seek justice for the victims of the Mumbai bombings and halt terrorism,” a Labour party spokesperson said, referring to the arrest of Hafiz Saeed, who is alleged to have masterminded the Mumbai attacks.
“We have suspended Lord Ahmed pending investigation,” she said.
Lord Nazir denied passing these remarks immediately. His denial was partially accurate, given that he never mentioned the name of current US President Barack Obama or the word “bounty”, as the The Express Tribune had reported. Instead, he made an “offer” for bringing to justice former US president George W Bush and former UK prime minister Tony Blair for what he termed to be their war crimes.
Likening the two cases, he said that if the reward for Saeed was ok, then his offer for Bush and Blair was also ok.
Whether his suspension was for mentioning President Obama’s name, or the nature of the comments itself is unclear.
