CAIRO - In his first public speech addressing tens of thousands of mostly Islamist supporters, Egypt's president-elect Mohammed Morsi has vowed to free the blind sheik jailed in the U.S. for a plot to blow up New York City landmarks.

Morsi, Egypt's first Islamist and civilian president-elect, promised Friday to work to free Omar Abdel-Rahman, the spiritual leader of men convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

He also promised to free detained Egyptian protesters facing military tribunals.

Plenty. But it will come on the eve of his lame-duck pardons.

Obama will release him, but only if/after he wins in November. He's old, he's blind and Obama will claim his release will be a “good will gesture” aimed at making the Muslims like us. Yet another reason to vote against Obama.

Not only will Obama agree to release him, but no doubt he will increase the $2 billion in aid we send every year to our good friends , the Egyptians. (sure the Chinese won’t mind if we divert a little of the money they are lending us)

I bet the Muslim Brotherhood gets their guy out before Obama even tries to get the Pak Doc that told us where Osama was.

It’s amazing and unfortunate that Barack Obama isn’t impeached, by now. Let Barack Obama, even, try to get away with all that he does, prior to the existence of political correctness!

[Abdel al-Rahman] Haggag said he believed Osama bin Laden routinely funneled $5,000 payments to [1993 WTC bomb conspirator] [Sheikh Omar Abdul] Rahman through [Abdurahman al] Amoudi and his organization, the American Muslim Council. Bin Laden's funds were allegedly used to pay Rahman's rent and phone bills in New Jersey and Brooklyn, a source said. ---------http://www.nypost.com/news/worldnews/6954.htm

And the American Muslim Council was the donor to Hillary Clinton's Senatorial campaign that the Hillary team reported, falsely, as being the "American Museum Council." The best Secretary of State money can buy.

"Why do we fear the word terrorist? If the terrorist is the person who defends his right, so we are terrorists. And if the terrorist is the one who struggles for the sake of Allah, then we are terrorists.
We . . . have been ordered with terrorism because we must prepare what power we can to terrorize the enemy of Allah. The Qur’an [calls on us] “to strike terror,” therefore we don’t fear to be described as “terrorists.” . . .
Let them say what they wish to say. They may say, “he is a terrorist,” “he uses violence,” “he uses force.” Let them say that. We are ordered to prepare whatever we can of power to terrorize the enemies of Islam.

--------- blind sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman

The blind Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman is the poster child for why the US criminal justice system does not work in dealing with foreign terrorist groups waging war on American soil. While imprisoned in the US, the Sheikh has at our expense been able to operate rather efficiently in directing his followers abroad... and if we think this stopped with the arrest of his messenger Lynne Stewart, we are mistaken- apparently he is still allowed to call his wife from time to time and can communicate through her. And now we have Obama's little Cairo speech Muslim Brotherhood buddies demonstrating this all too well in Egypt.

Not only will Obama free him, but he’ll probably throw in Major Nidal Hasan and also agree to build a shrine in the US to the 19 hijackers.

It’s worse than political correctness, I suspect.

obama, and the minions assisting him, use the thug tactics that got him elected in Chicago.

If those being blackmailed, threatened, etc. would realize the survival of our country is at stake, their personal embarrassing foibles pale in comparison to the downfall of the USA. They need to band together in “solidarity” of sort, and expose this terrorizing regime in the White House.

All he has to do is ask Obama. I am sure Obama would be happy to hand him the blind sheik.
