Remember Rashid Rauf, the (alleged) mastermind of the Heathrow airline bombing plot from this summer? He pretty well drew his interrogators a map of the whole operation.

Remember how he was going to walk?

Well, if I read this and this correctly , a higher court has ruled that he’s going to face trial after all, under a special anti-terrorism court. This probably wouldn’t be possible under U.S. law, since my first thought was that jeopardy had attached. Apparently that won’t be a problem in Pakistan.

Whether or not he’ll also be extradited to Britain is still up in the air.
