Statement of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales on Extradition of Baz Mohammad

WASHINGTON, Oct. 24 / -- Following is a statement by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales on the Extradition of Baz Mohammad:

"The extradition of Baz Mohammad, a drug kingpin with links to the Taliban, is an historic step in our work with the Afghan people to end the dual threat of narco-terrorism. This first- ever extradition from Afghanistan sends a clear message to drug lords around the world: Those who seek to destroy American lives will be brought to justice. I thank President Karzai for his leadership, and I thank the prosecutors and law enforcement agents of both nations whose dedication and hard work made today's announcement possible."
