Haqqani asks "Why US wants to kill me?"

The Leader of the feared Haqqani Network, Sirajuddin Haqqani asks why US want to kill me? Citing he neither wears a turban nor carries a gun (i.e. in public). He accused the US of violating its basic legal principles by declaring an unarmed man as their enemy.

Speaking by satellite phone from an undisclosed location, Sirajuddin Haqqani said he’s absolutely clueless about the reason of US enemity towards him? "Arbitrary killing is not a solution to political problems," he said. 

"I neither wear a turban nor carry a gun, still they count me an enemy?"

According to the New American Database, at least a quarter of the Drone Attacks conducted by US since 2008 have targeted the Haqqanis. And about fifty five members of his family, including his brother, have been killed in Drone Attacks by US.

Yet he is far from being a desperate fugitive on the run.
