American Arrested Near Afghan-Pakistan Border
A 20-year-old American man was arrested late Monday at a checkpoint near the Afghan border in a tribal region where Pakistani troops are fighting Taliban and Al Qaeda militants, police said.
Apparently the guy’s name is Juddi Kenan and his passport says he’s from Florida. Police in Pakistan report that he said he was in the area to visit a friend.
Immediately your mind jumps to the presumption that he’s trying to get to Al Qaeda redoubts in Pakistan to offer his services as an American, but let’s wait to see what’s additional information is forthcoming.
