Watch VIDEO: Al Qaeda-abducted U.S. Citizen Warren Weinstein's Message for President Obama

WASHINGTON, DC (Mon, May 07) - An American hostage held by Al Qaeda has asked U.S. President to help save his life by accepting the demands of Al Qaeda.

In a recently released video message Warren Weinstein says:

"My life is in your hands, Mr. President. If you accept the demands, I live; if you don't accept the demands, then I die."

The demands by Al Qaeda against the release of Warren Weinstein are:

1. Stopping U.S. airstrikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen,
2. And release of all Al Qaeda and Taliban prisoners.

Associated Press reports further:
Al-Qaeda's media arm, Al-Sahab, shows U.S. captive Warren Weinstein in a video. He tells President Obama to answer al-Qaeda's demands or he will be killed. ...

Weinstein was abducted last August in Lahore, Pakistan, after gunmen tricked his guards and broke into his home. The 70-year-old from Rockville, Md., is the country director in Pakistan for J.E. Austin Associates, a Virginia-based firm that advises a range of Pakistani business and government sectors.

In a video message posted on militant websites in December, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri said Weinstein would be released if the United States stopped airstrikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. He also demanded the release of all al-Qaeda and Taliban suspects around the world.
