Musharraf: CIA Paid Pakistan For Al-Qaeda Suspects

"The US Central Intelligence Agency paid Pakistan millions of dollars for handing over more than 350 suspected al-Qaeda terrorists to the United States, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has reportedly said. The assertions come in the military ruler's upcoming memoir "In the Line of Fire," serialized in The Times newspaper."

I didn't see it in the article, but how do we know these people were Al Qaeda? I mean they could just have given us criminals, and miscreants, or insane people, claiming they are terrorists. What does this do for us as a nation to prevent terror attacks?

I mean "bring out your terrorists", and the US government will pay for them? There seems to be a flawed logic here. As soon as money gets into the picture, everyone starts to go a little wacky.

I keep hearing this about paying for terrorists. Now I understand that the Taliban is just rounding up farmers and villagers and they are sent to our secret prisons abroad and torchered. hmmm, that sounds like the America my parents grew up in.
