The GOP has been out for Eric Holder's head for weeks over his handling of the Khalid Sheikh Mohammed trial.
It was tough work, Khalid said, translating what a man was saying when his nails were being pulled out.
When Khalid decided to make his mark as the new NDS chief, there was no need to look far for Khel.
A series of subsequent interrogations, including one of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, confirmed the courier's importance.
Then, one of the Joint Terrorism Task Force officers came back and pulled Khalid out.
And now, Khalid is neither dervish nor philosopher, 120 but a man of business with a capital of twenty-five dollars in his pocket.
After all, might it not be a literary hoax, we thought, and might not this Khalid be a myth.
During that memorable day, Khalid had nine sabres broken in his hand.
Now, of this high phase of education, Khalid was thoroughly immune.
But Khalid could sit there as immobile as the Boss himself, and he did so, billah!
