Source: Obama Administration in Talks to Transfer ‘Blind Sheikh’ to Egypt
The Blaze ^ | Sept. 17, 2012 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 09/17/2012 2:43:54 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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, a source close to the the Obama administration told TheBlaze.

Glenn Beck revealed the controversial news on his show Monday.

The negotiations are allegedly part of the ongoing discussions with the Egyptian government to resolve the crisis plaguing the Middle East, the source told TheBlaze. Calls to the State Department for comment referred us to the Department of Justice, and nothing has been confirmed.

The Blind Sheikh is serving a life sentence in American prison for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His release has been called one of the top priorities of the new Islamist administration in Egypt. Many have pinpointed the cause of last week‘s unrest in Egypt to be protests over the Blind Sheikh’s release– not an anti-Islam YouTube video.

This has all the earmarks of extortion.

Why on Earth would Obama agree to this now? With everything going on in the ME now? Unless, maybe someone has something embarrassing on Obama?

“for humanitarian and health reasons...”

Bravo Sierra.

They are placating and appeasing these Muslim Brotherhood terrorists and would be releasing a convicted terrorist murderr who tried to murder tens of thosuands.

This is sickening and digusting and I hope it is proclaimed from the rooftops so every American can see how soft on radical Islamics this administration is.

Actually, it surprised me. Obama is a disgustingly evil anti-American thug, but I thought he was smart enough to at least wait until after the election before taking the many actions of this nature that I have always assumed he would take as soon as he had the freedom to be more flexible in his actions.

2.) The up coming elections are going to be suspended due to a false flag

If elections are suspended then it's AR II, and there won't be enough brownshirts in the world to stop it.

If this is true, he just lost the election.

HUH? The clown in the WH could murder Moochele on Teevee and the loyal worshipers of this messiah will still give him their vote. He has just as loyal following as Bubba had, and the clown gets the white "slave guilt" vote to boot.

IMHO it makes no difference what he does - it is the GOP that has to win this thing and they sure are NOT going to do it by saying what a nice fellow the clown is that is currently destroying our country.

You'd be correct if he was ever held accountable for anything, like a real candidate would. Of course there's a first time for everything.

Obama is going to send Extremely Bad Santa where he wants and doesn't care what Americans think.

wanna take a bet? I doubt that he will be released (before the election) but I am almost certain that even if he was released, Obama would still very easily win NY.

Liberals hate Conservatives much more than they do the blind sheik or Osama.

I have no doubt the evil left will push this Republic into CW2 or Rev2.0 It's only a matter of time. The left is pure evil.

Where does a president get constitutional authority to do such a thing, short of pardoning the terrorist?

Since when can he does he get to over-rule lawfully imposed sentences without exercising the pardon power?

1993 World trade happened due to Blind Sheikh.
After his arrest US lost over 6000 citizens.

Now they want to release him to appease Morsi.
Cowards.

People have almost forgotten about the first attack. Heck, they’ve almost forgotten about 9/11.

The Obama-licking media has led that campaign. Remember, NBC News skipped the moment of silence on 9/11 to chat with some dumb celebrity about her fake boobs. When questioned, they expressed sorrow that affiliates had to deal with complaints.

The release of a terrorist complicit in an attack on American soil will get twenty seconds at 6:23 during the Nightly News with Katie Couric or Diane Sawyer or whoever. And those seconds will focus on his brave battle against a terrible illness with violin music in the background. Brian Williams will wipe away a tear.

I don’t suppose anyone will compare this to the guy convicted of the Lockerbie bombing, who was “transferred to Libya” because he was supposedly dying of cancer, and promptly disappeared.
