American hostage begs for his release

New video, released by Al Queda, shows an American hostage begging President Obama to meet the demands of the terrorist organization.

"My life is in your hands, Mr. President.  If you accept the demands, I live.  If you don't accept the demands, then I die," said Warren Weinstein.

70-year-old Warren Weinstein was kidnapped last year from his home in Pakistan.

He worked for a private company that deals with international aid issues.

The demands in the tape aren't clear, but the White House said there will be no negotiating with Al Queda.

Right now, it is unclear when the video was made, but some believe that the tape was released to coincide with the arraignment of five 9/11 conspirators.
