Former SUNY Oswego Professor Begs Obama For Aid In al-Qaeda Release
Posted December 27th, 2013 @ 1:46pm by Jim Donovan

A former SUNY Oswego professor, kidnapped by al-Qaeda over two years ago, is asking President Obama to help affect his release.

Warren Weinstein was seen on a brief video asking Obama to help get him released from the terrorist group. Weinstein says, "Mr. Obama, you're a family man, so you understand the deep mental anxiety and anguish that I have been experiencing for these past more than two years."

Weinstein taught political science at SUNY Oswego in the 1970's, and left the university to work with a group called US AID to assist people in developing countries.
