Releasing the Blind Sheikh?

☆ QueenAline 2012/09/21 03:46:33

The Obama administration may give a get-out-of-jail-free card to an
Islamic terrorist whose group helped to ignite a wave of deadly attacks
last week against U.S. diplomatic missions in the Middle East.


The U.S. Department of State “is actively considering negotiations
with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar
Abdel-Rahman, also known as ‘the Blind Sheikh,’ for humanitarian and
health reasons,” The Blaze news website reported, citing a confidential source close to the Obama administration.






On September 10, the day before terrorists assaulted the U.S. Embassy
in Cairo and the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Abdel-Rahman’s
terrorist organization demanded
the release of the Blind Sheikh and all detainees in Guantanamo Bay,
Cuba. His group, Jamaa Islamiya (also known as al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya
or, in English, Islamic Group), is linked to al Qaeda. At least two of
the other groups that demanded Abdel-Rahman’s release — Islamic Jihad
and the Sunni Group— also have al Qaeda ties.


The new Islamist president of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, considers
Abdel-Rahman to be a U.S. political prisoner, and has asked the Obama
administration to release him.


The Arabic language newspaper al-Arabiya reported
more than six months ago that the Obama administration offered to send
Abdel-Rahman to Egypt as part a prisoner swap. Called the “Emir of
Jihad” by some, Abdel-Rahman is a spiritual leader to al Qaeda and other
militant Islamist groups. He would almost certainly be hailed on his
return to Egypt as a conquering hero for attacking America, the “Great
Satan.”


It was unclear at press time if the 74-year-old Abdel-Rahman,
convicted of “seditious conspiracy” in 1995 in connection with the 1993
bombing of the World Trade Center, was suffering from any particular
medical condition that might justify such a release. Now serving a term
of life imprisonment in the United States, early in life he went blind
after becoming diabetic.


The Blaze indicates the State Department has “neither confirmed nor
denied the report,” but Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the U.S. Department
of Justice, trashed the report. “The assertion that the Blind Sheikh may
be transferred to Egypt is utter garbage.” Boyd piled on the rubbish
metaphor adding that suggestions that there are “discussions to transfer
or release him are absolute garbage and completely false.”


Of course it might be wise to take Boyd’s remarks with a grain of
salt. Boyd works for the same Department of Justice that collaborates
with the George Soros-funded attack group Media Matters for America to
spin news deemed harmful to the Obama administration. Hard-driving
investigative journalist Matthew Boyle of the Daily Caller reported
yesterday that internal emails from the DoJ show that the pretend media
watchdog works with embattled Attorney General Eric Holder’s
communications staff “in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals
plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.”

    Oh yes, release him from his miserable old blind body with a lethal injection, then cremate the remains along with the remains from a pig roast then sprinkle them in a cesspool. Or does he deserve better?

    Seriously, these Al Queda linked terrorists should get shot. That would be the best message for these militant Muslims. After WWII, the treasonous War Crime criminals were swiftly brought to justice, why not now?

    The stupidity of "medical conditions" to send the terrorist back home is unbelievable. Even if they do have medical conditions, they can be taken care of in prison here. Remember the other one they sent back with "terminal cancer", not expected to live very long? & he lived another 10 yrs I believe, aiding the terrorists' cause, after killing 200+ people with the Pan Am bomb.

    I see Ovomit actively behind the aide he gave to Libya & Egypt to get the Muslim Brotherhood in control, & then those 2 countries attack our Embassies, & in libya kill our 4 AMERICANS! He's helping to set things up for these radical Islam extremists-& just look at his responses!

    It's freakin bad when we have to hear from an Arabic newspaper reporting that 6 MONTHS AGO, that Ovomit OFFERED TO SWAP THIS AL QUEDA LINKED TERRORIST MILITANT, & THEN THE STATE DEBT LIES ABOUT IT,using that piece of crap "The Blaze", which covers the atrocities that Obama is doing.

    Ovomit's foreign "policies" are dangerous to America-he apologizes to the terrorists when they kill our Ambassador, 2 ex-Navy SEALS, & 1 other, ...

    It's only Islam.

    We need to have Patriots for President & adm. Not Obama.

    We need Romney/Ryan.

    Oh yeah, our Muslim Sympathizer In Chief will release him.
    The only difference is that when I released him, it would be from a half mile up over the middle of the North Atlantic.

    Just like releasing the Gitmo detainees, this would be treasonous. The Obama admin would have blood on their hands as they do as far as Libya is concerned. WE DO NOT NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS!
