No One Knows What Goes On Behind Closed Doors...

Howdy, neighbor!  "A Chicago cabdriver who authorities say recently talked of bombing a stadium was arrested downtown today while on the job and charged with trying to send a few hundred dollars overseas to al-Qaida.  Raja Lahrasib Khan, 56, a Pakistani native who lives in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, sent a money transfer of about $950 to a contact in Pakistan last November and directed that $300 go to the leader of a Sunni extremist group with ties to al-Qaida, authorities charged."  Read the rest of the story in Chicago Breaking News.  Early media reports place his residence on the 4500 block of Clarendon, but that wasn't included in later reports.


  1. Public data sources place Raja Khan at what we locally call Twin Towers, the tenant owned and controlled former HUD high rise towers at 4550 N Clarendon, which is officially named Lakeview Towers. An international trading company owned by Raja Khan also backgrounds to that address. Mr. Khan’s phone land line also pops ------but cannot be possible -----at 4450 N Clarendon, the Alderman Shiller managed DCFS parking lot.

    Perhaps the defendant, Mr. Khan gave a false address on the arrest report, which Breaking News initially reported and then deleted from later, editorially checked articles. Lakeview Towers received grants from the City of Chicago last year and is getting $1,831,121 in 2010 federal stimulus funds to provide additional Section 8 rental assistance to low income families this year. If Mr. Khan lives in HUD funded property, the HUD approved management company can, and should, evict him for a felony, even though that never seems to happen in our Uptown community.

  2. This sounds like trumped up charges.

    I don't think a cabdriver who works 12 hours a day is a threat by sending 950 dollars to "Al Queda" .

    Al Queda doesn't exist. It's in the imagination of people who want YOU to spend all your tax dollars on absurd wars that are acknowledged to be based on WMD.

    When do people stop believing in lies?

  3. Stu Piddy, once again you have caused me to ruin another keyboard. I don't come here often but whenever I do, it seems that I always happen upon one of your posts and it's usually when I have just taken a sip of coffee. That's two keyboards you owe me.
