Outrage builds as Egypt presses for release of blind sheik behind '93 WTC attack (July 2012)
FoxNews.com ^ | July 03, 2012 | Perry Chiaramonte

Egypt's new government is sparking growing outrage in the U.S. for its attempts to win the release of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind cleric behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. In Cairo, President-elect Mohamed Morsi proclaimed to hundreds of thousands of supporters in Tahir Square on Friday that he will gain the release of Rahman, who is in a federal prison in North Carolina after having been convicted of masterminding the bombing that killed six and unsuccessfully plotting to blow up other landmarks, including the United Nations. Although a U.S. official told FoxNews.com the sheik will never be freed, the fact that Egypt's newly-installed Muslim Brotherhood government is asking has top elected officials here seething. “It’s disgusting for a head of government to state in his inaugural speech that a man who attempted to commit mass murder should be freed,” Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told FoxNews.com. “The fact that he said this in his first speech says to me that this is from the heart, and the Muslim Brotherhood has been trying to convince us that they have changed. “We need to be more on guard than ever,” King added. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., weighed in, calling Morsi's speech "an insult." “President Morsi’s offensive statements are an insult to the memories of the victims of the World Trade Center bombing. ... Rest assured, (Rahman) will stay right where he belongs – in jail for the rest of his life,” Schumer said.

The Won will commute the sheik’s sentence, saying he has prostate cancer and a life-expectancy of only a few weeks.

Barry will release him and Keith Ellison will makes excuses for why.

plotting to blow up other landmarks, including the United Nations.

This was certainly a mitigating factor.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day ~ but he still ought to be set on fire and tossed off a tall building.

My bet is that he will be released by the end of the year. Obama might not dare to do it right now, but it will happen after the election is over.

Now we can see the deal obama's working out:

He'll offer up the scapegoat filmmaker to the egyptians in place of the blind shiek.

For o to tell morsi anything forceful or manlike is beyond him. He's simply looking for a soft landing spot.

Odummy will personally meet the murderer at the airport, escort him to the plane, and wave to him when the plane departs. All this will be done while Biden and Clinton sing “Amazing Grace” as back-up.

Too compassionate. Put him in a closed room with the “Innocence” movie audio playing and loose a swarm of yellow jacket bees.

Provide bee sting medicine as needed and repeat the procedure daily.

They ask because the know Obozo is going to be defeated in November.

They know the window of opportunity is closing for them.

Middle East Blood money bought his election and ascension to power. They are trying to get the most effect from what they bought.

I pray for the day when honest men will turn over the rocks under which this hides. Daylight exposure is needed. SOON

I’d recommend “Manos: The Hands of Fate”.

That’s some real torture, of course, he’d only get half the effect as he’s blind, but perhaps provide someone to interpret the action (or lack thereof) on the screen.

Hell, I only wish I was blind after seeing that film.

I'll tell you what's disgusting Representative Peter King, R-N.Y., and all other Republicans and Democrats in Congress, is that you all couldn't be bothered to remove the billion+ dollars in taxpayer money that is being given to Egypt.

You and all your buddies in Congress piss and moan about Egypt, but I don't see anybody outside of Rand Paul getting serious about trying to remove the aid to Egypt. Very hollow words on King's part.

I say release the sheik...with one between the eyes and two in the chest. Have him delivered in the casket with remains of debris from 911. We would complete two tasks: one satisfy the demands of the egyptian gov,t and two send the message that only a terrorist corpse will be released going forward.

Oh I forgot, deduct the cost of freight and ammo from the billions in aid they receive from the US.

Clinton? Holder? Terrorists? Yeah, they’ll be released just like the 15 FALN members were towards the end of BJ’s 2nd term.

If Morsi keeps making these stupid demands, I’d make a point of taking the blind goatviolator out and shooting him. Then fly a plane over Morsi’s residence and dump the body on the grounds. “Here’s your sheik” we could then announce to Morsi. Just before we drop a bomb on him.

Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman should have been executed. At this point the only thing to release is his rotting carcass.

I think it’s time for the blind sheik to be executed for his part in killing Americans. And it needs to be public.
