The United States has launched a campaign on Pakistani television and radio in the past week to advertise multi-million dollar rewards for information leading to the arrest of Usama bin Ladin and other al-Qaida leaders.



A 30-second television commercial shows pictures of Bin Ladin, his deputy Ayman al-Zawahri, who both have $25 million rewards on their heads, and 21 others, including Mullah Muhammad Omar, the leader of Afghanistan's vanquished Taliban militia.

"State-run Radio Pakistan is running these commercials since last Wednesday in Urdu, Pashto, Baluchi and Sindhi languages," said Greggory Crouch, press attache of the US embassy in Islamabad.

"The American propaganda proved effective in Afghanistan and helped them to catch many Taliban. It can also work here," said Muzaffar Khan a resident of Wana.

so i guess the search for the elusive world wide terrorists number one is still on!
dont think that the bush goverment forgot about him.
he "seems" to be hiding in the border zone between pakistan and afganistan, in a high mountain area.

pakistani reactions to this reward are very mixed:
some say that the american propaganda could work,
yet others find it very insulting:
"These advertisements are an insult to Muslims. Pakistani television and radio channels and newspapers should not stoop so low for the sake of money."
