Skip to comments.The Blind Sheikh May be Released to Egypt

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.
