Labour Party leader announces 10 million dollar bounty on Obama
These days anyone can announce a bounty on anybody's head - a British peer Lord has reportedly..

NOW THIS is a reverse bounty – a British peer has been suspended from labour Party for his reported ‘£10 million bounty’ on the head of the US president Barack Obama and his predecessor George W. Bush.
53-year-old Lord Ahmad who became the first Muslim life peer in 1998 has reportedly made his comments at a conference in Haripur, Pakistan, in the presence of a Pakistan’s former foreign minister, the Daily Telegraph reported.

A Labour Party spokesman said: "We have suspended Lord Ahmed pending investigation. If these comments are accurate we utterly condemn these remarks which are totally unacceptable." The bounty, according to Pakistan’s Express Tribune newspaper has been offered in response to the US bounty on Jamat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed. “If the US can announce a reward of $10 million for the (capture) of Hafiz Saeed, I can announce a bounty of £10 million (for the capture of) President Obama and his predecessor, George Bush."

After receiving a rousing reception at a conference, organised in his honour by Haripur business community is reported to have said that ‘he will arrange the bounty at any cost, even if he had to sell his personal assets, including the house.'

Though Lord Ahmad has denied the accusations, maintaining that he told the meeting that "Mr Bush and Tony Blair should be prosecuted for war crimes."

"I never said those words. I did not offer a bounty. I said that there have been war crimes committed in Iraq and Afghanistan and those people who have got strong allegations against them - George W Bush and Tony Blair - have been involved in illegal wars and should be brought to justice,” Lord Ahmad told Associated Press of Pakistan.
