The Joe Biden administration slammed a Pakistan court's decision to release Omar Saeed Sheikh, the terrorist convicted of masterminding the 2002 beheading of US journalist Daniel Pearl. Biden's chief spokeswoman Jen Psaki said US was "outraged by the Pakistani Supreme Court's decision." State Secretary Antony Blinken said Washington is ready to "prosecute Sheikh in the United States for his horrific crimes."
