WASHINGTON -- One of the more elusive and mysterious figures linked to Al Qaeda -- a Pakistani mother of three who studied biology at MIT and who authorities say spent years in the United States as a sleeper agent -- was flown to New York on Monday night to face charges of attempting to kill U.S. military and FBI personnel in Afghanistan.
The Justice Department, FBI and U.S. military in Afghanistan said that Aafia Siddiqui, 36, was arrested in Ghazni province three weeks ago. She is accused of firing an automatic rifle at FBI agents and soldiers and is scheduled to appear before a federal judge in Manhattan today.

The FBI wasn't necessarily in Afghanistan. They probably tracked the woman while she was in the US and cooperated with the US military on some level. Another Al-Queda sympathizer caught! Quite the busy woman... PhD, mother of 3, time abroad helping Al-Queda...
