The basic facts are known. Nine years ago, on Jan. 23, 2002, Pearl, the 38-year-old South Asia bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal, was kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan, while checking out leads on a terrorist network. While Pakistani and United States officials were still frantically scouring Karachi, a video came to light one month later, showing in gruesome detail that Pearl had been beheaded. In May 2002, Pearl’s dismembered body was discovered.
