The Mysterious case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui

Hey, Do you like a mystery? Then I have one for you. It’s the mysterious case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. This American educated, Pakistani neuroscientist, and her 3 young children disappeared in Pakistan in 2003. Did she go underground with al-Quaeda or was she kidnapped by the US and Pakistan? That question has never been answered.

What we do know is that she reappeared in 2008. Picked up by authorities in Afghanistan she was shot in the stomach and accused of attempting to kill US soldiers.

Tune in to learn more about the mysterious case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, a terrorist? Or a victim of the US War on Terror? My guest is Victoria Brittain, author and journalist who has covered this case extensively.
