(CNN) -- A New York imam who pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents as they investigated an alleged terror plot left the United States on Monday as part of his plea deal, a government spokesman and the imam's attorney told CNN.

Imam Ahmad Afzali and his wife left on a 2 p.m. flight to live in Saudi Arabia, said Afzali's attorney, Ron Kuby.

A government spokesman confirmed Afzali's departure.

After his guilty plea earlier this year for lying to federal agents in the case involving Najibullah Zazi's alleged subway bombing plan in New York City, Afzali had 90 days to "self-deport" from the United States and was required to wear an ankle monitor until his departure, according to Kuby. The ankle monitor was removed before Monday's flight, Kuby said.

Sigh..... if only Martha Stewart had been Amish too!

Catch and Release for many offenders does not work but it’s a core belief of progressives.

Would hanging them not have been a better idea?

Hanging would have been better, but as a second choice he can go live in the islamic uptopia of Saudi Arabia.

A few more Jihadists among millions in Saudi Arabia is a good deal, considering it costs us $40K a year to feed a scumbag. A bullet is cheaper but lawyers might have complained

Now we will get to hear the familiar chorus
of how this was a great victory for Allah,
etc, etc, etc.

Does this administration believe he will
somehow see the error of his ways and not
seek vengeance on the Great Satan?
That he will not continue to spread vile
hatred to believers?

It will be interesting to see what happens now.
