Posted on 04/16/2010 2:22:43 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
Ahmad Afzali, the Queens imam who pleaded guilty in March to lying to law enforcement officials about his relationship with Najibullah Zazi, the airport worker who planned to bomb New York's subways, was sentenced by a federal judge yesterday to time served.
Mr. Afzali, who left his native Afghanistan following the Soviet invasion, also agreed to "self-execute" removal from the United States in the next 90 days in order to avoid a deportation hearing.
Prosecutors alleged that Mr. Afzali warned Mr. Zazi and his father that they were under law-enforcement surveillance, then, as Assistant U.S. Attorney James P. Loonam told Judge Frederic Block yesterday, "lied repeatedly" to the police and FBI.
Mr. Afzali, 38, told the court, "I take full responsibility for my actions. But honestly, it was never my intention to help those idiots."

Sweet. Give him a revolver and a cartridge and lock him in a room until you hear the 'bang'.
“...removal from the United States in the next 90 days in order to avoid a deportation hearing.”
Why didn’t they put his sorry ass on the plane immediately. Are they keeping track of him during the 90 days that he is still in the country?
He still doesn't like those U.S Attorneys does he ?
The brave new contingency operation and those crazy non-nation state fighters...
Let the enemy run free and prosecute our guys..
What about all his followers?
Why stop with just him?
