Skip to comments.The Blind Sheikh May be Released to Egypt
Posted on 09/17/2012 7:45:15 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
The Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, is serving a life sentence for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Since becoming the new Egyptian President, Mohammed Morsi has vowed to secure his return to Egypt, as a "nod to his base" of "hard-line Salafi Islamists," as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The bomb in 1993 killed six Americans and injured more than a thousand. Omar Abdel-Rahman's terror organization masterminded the assassination of former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, and he was reported to have a "close association" with Osama bin Laden. would Americans want to see this man walk free? Under President Obama, it just may happen.
According to Erica Ritz from TheBlaze, "The U.S. State Department is currently in 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," conflicting with the statement from the Department of Justice, that insists his release is not a consideration.

What is wrong with us. The bastard planned an attack that killed 6 people and injured 1,000.
What are they thinking to even discuss this?
Saw Glen Beck predict this last Friday.
Osorry wouldn’t really be that weak, stupid, or frightened to actually pay this ransom, or could he???
Nothing surprises me in Bizarro world!
Give him a dose of polonium-210 and let him go.
And second, I don't think the Sheikh is going anywhere soon. After the heat Obungler's taking over his [mis]handling of the Middle East, he's not just about to do something this stupid in an election year.
This guy is unreal!
He will if it contributes to more chaos here. His job for the last four years has been to get in the way and gum up the works so that our government and businesses cannot function.
If Obummer turns him over to the Egyptians, who knows, they might just execute the sob for offing Sadat.
Osorry wouldnt really be that weak, stupid, or frightened to actually pay this ransom, or could he???
yes he would
Be a Muslim but NOT an Islamist (political Islam, sharia law advocate) and you can stay at home like the rest of us.
Islamists are starting to act a little too aggressively here and they need to be put where they cannot do us anymore harm.
I'm sick of hearing Islamist crap like.. "We're against all forms of violence.. whether it's from Christians, Jews, or criminals who claim to be Muslim. Let us teach you about Islam."
Where is the Egyptian “Coptic Christian” Salafist who was taken into custody? Are they threatening to make war all over the country if they don’t get their blind sheik released? Hmmm. We don’t negotiate with terrorists. It would be too bad if the sheik had a heart attack in prison.
The transparent muslime is becoming more transparently muslime!
This is not my country.
Does the Vatican accept refugees seeking political asylum?
All enemies foreign and domestic. We are dealing with the domestic type where odummy and his administration are concerned. Enemies within.
The GOP needs to ram this down Obama/Dems throat...and not go pro-terrorist like they did with Huma Abedin/Muslim Bro’hood connection (McCain, Graham, Rubio, etc, attacking House members bringing Abedin/Mo Bro’hood up)
This would be surrender to Islamic Terrorists if they release the Blind Sheikh. They need to execute the Sheikh, and make it messy
Obama’s motto with muslim terrorists: “Appease, appease, appease.”
I can’t imagine the frustration felt by those working behind the scenes on behalf of the Constitution, the Citizens, the West.
Hussein just f_ _ ked himself...
and Clint Eastwood said that wasn't possible..
Mark my words, if Obama wins, the Blind Sheikh WILL be released.
I suspect that at this moment, negotiations are indeed taking place.
What the heck, send the cat back to a hero’s welcome.
Just make sure all of his shots are up to date before release - you know -
Hep a, Hep B, Hep C, AIDS, Herpes (all variants), TB, did I miss that he could take home with him as a gift that keeps giving?
What heat is Obozero taking for the Cairo and Benghazi debacles or anything else in the Middle East?
The lapdog media is ignoring everything...State isn’t providing any more details, the UN beyotch just lies through her pie hole and the only people even commenting are on Fox.
The 75% brain dead in this country get everything from CNN and Jon Stewart et al.
Journalism is D E A D.
Obama’s hate for America runs sufficiently deep to commit such a treasonous act.
He is so blind, he can’t see the risk.
If the State Department denies it, you can bet the farm that they are going to do it. Each day that dawns I despise the sons of bitches that inflicted that bastard on me more than the previous day.
No, the Egyptians who offed Sadat are now in charge. Rahman is a hero to them.
Stand corrected, it was the Ambassador to Libya.
BUT the Muslim Brotherhood now controls both. Do they not?
He will probably do more stupid things this year because he does not expect to be re-elected. He will shock us with his audacity and he will burn down the financial house before he leaves in January.
If they were to pull this stunt, I'd bet part of the reason is to insult Israel - Releasing the Egyptian terrorist while continuing to imprison Pollard.
Each should have been hung, imho.
Why wouldnt a Man who is a Muslim, and Hates America, set free a Murdering Killer of Americans?
Obama Is such a Man.
He is out to do as Much Damage as He Can Get away with...and He will do More as we approach His Firing.
... and Ronald Reagan bombed Libya following Pan-Am Locherbie. The enenies have played this well.
Nahhh. The Muslim Brotherhood had no use for Sadat. Sadat was a great man and not an Islamist.
That is why they killed him.
You’re kidding, right?
Well, it isn’t the first time I let my sunny optimism get in the way of cold hard reality. :)
What are they thinking to even discuss this?
Here is who "THEY" are:
What has the president of Egypt promised Obama if he turns over the Blind Sheik — peace in our time? Appeasing dictators is the road to ruin.
Are we sure Bin Laden's really dead and not living comfortably on some Caribbean Island under Federal protection?
If a$$hole looses he will release that blind bastard as a way of getting even with us, who voted against him!
Libya STevens was the ambassafor to Libya. At least our side cam get the facts straight....k?
Anyone STILL thinking that Treason charges are “over the top”?
My loathing of the illegitimate, bisexual, Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper requires a stiff drink. And a pulled pork sammich.
There are not enough lampposts in this country. Not near enough.
Shove a gps up his arse and launch the drones two days after he’s back amongst his terrorist buddies...
See my post #28
I will have more flexibility after the election
Bet they give him an absentee ballot before he goes.
If he loses he might do it. He can pardon anyone he wants.
Good luck with that...
Probably make him a Vice President of Egypt.
