SOURCE: STATE DEPARTMENT IN TALKS TO TRANSFER ‘BLIND SHEIKH’ TO EGYPT; DOJ DENIES
The Blazs ^

Posted on 09/17/2012 3:20:05 PM PDT by TigerClaws

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.

The Department of Justice, however, told TheBlaze that Rahman is serving a life sentence and is not considered for possible release.  Previous calls to the State Department were referred to the Department of Justice and so far, the State Department has neither confirmed nor denied the report.

The last ‘humanatarian’ transfer of a convicted terrorist worked out not so well.

I doubt Obama would commit political suicide before the election. Afterwards, maybe.

There’s one way I’d agree to this.

1. Our blind Pres__ent Resident goes with him in the deal.
2. Our deaf, blind, and dumb Vice-President accompanies them.

Work this out, and I’m in...

Definitely something the Romney campaign should jump on if true. There's an old Rudyard Kipling poem "Danegeld" that applies:

"We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that plays it is lost!"

Not even Obama’s political advisers are stupid enough to allow this to happen before the election. If they win, I think Obama could very well do this.

I can see him doing only if he loses the election and is a lame duck...

Time to watch for release is after election if Obama wins. Or in days post election, pre inauguration if he looses.

Instead of protecting America,
the American people and the US Constitution,
the DOJ and State Dept.’s FIRST INTEREST is otherwise.
They have helped free the Cole Bombers,
then free the Bomber of a loaded airplane,
then weaponize terrorists entering America,
and then free the WTC1 Bomber.

First, if THIS is not treason, what is?

Second, this is CERTAINLY the ‘tip of the iceberg’
of antiAmerican, proterrorist individuals
(Hasan-class or higher)
at the HIGHEST levels, America.

Obama can do what ever he wants because the willing news media will cover up or spin anything that looks bad.

The American people would never buy that one. And Obama would never take such a risk before the election. What could he possibly gain with such a move?

Like he said in an unguarded moment, he will have more "flexibility" after he is reelected.

He’s been committing political suicide since he first stepped into the Oval office, literally. On his very first day in office the very first thing he did above everything else was to try and close down Gitmo. Assisting terrorists was the #1 priority for this fool. The problem is the zombie media does everything in its power to not report it or explain away his constant attempts to destroy this country which is why he is neck and neck with Romney in the polls. If we had a partial media in this country even Charles Manson would be kicking his butt if he ran for office, this Obama is THE worst President this country has ever had bar none, but thanks to the media we may very well have another 4 years of this freakin nightmare of which we may never recover. The media in this country can go and do to themselves what the Obama empty chair told Clint Eastwood to do. They are treasonous pond scum and I hope they choke on themselves and die when they see how bad it’s going to get if this idiot wins a 2nd term.

I certainly believe that. He could make the deal pre election so Morsi tames the mobs in Egypt and Obama can take credit for it before the vote and then after he wins or doesn’t win, it doesn’t matter, he releases the blind sheikh.

You know what sucks? Say Obama does lose the election. He’s still in power until January and he could do a lot of damage until he leaves.

And no doubt he will. Obama will give us plenty of Marc Rich types who will be pardoned. And he will try to infiltrate the career civil service to leave his imprint. Anything that can be done by Executive Order will be done.

Of course, there will be a huge battle about going over the fiscal cliff January 1.

If Romney wins the WH, he can issue one EO that can negate all of Obama’s EOs with the stroke of a pen.

"I doubt Obama would commit political suicide before the election. Afterwards, maybe."

Glenn says this transfer WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION. That way if Obama is re-elected he could care less what people think as he has his agenda. BUT if Romney gets in the nieve people will BELIEVE it was Romney who did this and he will be voted out after one term.

If it doesn't happen while Obama is in office, it won't happen. Romney would not let it happen if he is the WH.

Remember the vote is November 6th. That is when Obama or Romney will be voted in. Obama’s plans will be to make the transfer minutes after the oath is taken.
