US State Dept. Considers Releasing Blind Sheikh to Egypt
Breitbart - Big Peace ^ | 9/18/12 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 09/19/2012 10:55:26 AM PDT by jmstein7

The US State Department is actively negotiating with Egyptian President Morsi's government about transferring Omar Abdel-Rahman from US custody to Egyptian custody.

Rahman, also known as "the Blind Sheikh," is currently serving a life sentence in the US for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. But Egypt is pushing for his release for "humanitarian and health" reasons.

...

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy believes the deal to release Rahman has already been reached by the administration, and they are just waiting until after the election to announce it. McCarthy believes this is why the DOJ so strongly ruled out Rahman's "release" but said nothing against his "transfer."

McCarthy was lead prosecutor in Rahman's case.

No doubt all the enemies of the USA who are now in custody will be pardoned by the departing Obama in his lame duck session. He will do it for spite so they can regroup in their hellhole Muslim countries and attack us again.

Should he win, he’ll wait until after his inauguration in Jan.

0pology’s apology and appeasement foreign policy continues because its all been working out so well. Barky knows that if we just give the fanatics what they want they'll never ask for any more.

That would make sense, with the way this administration either flat-out lies or manipulates words so that the effect is the same as lying.

He recently released 3000 detainees in Afghanistan to “Afghan custody.” If he keeps it up, there won’t be anybody to pardon by the time January rolls around. Or even by November, for that matter.

You’d think people would be more upset about this. Although, of course, probably almost the only people who know about it are Freepers.

Better, he should say that there's a rumor that Obama will, and then DEMAND that he publicly - in front of 50+ million people - pledge not to do so under any circumstances. Hussein will likely hem and haw, not being prepared for such a question.

You are 100% right. Shove this in his face.

I predicted this

another obamanation awaiting us for “after the election”
the consequences of our potus sucking up to the MB for our national security? staggering

this blind sheikh is pure evil. He IS the guy who helped plan the “first” WTC attack in 1993. The one that was intended to kill tens of thousands. The one Clinton failed to even personally visit for months

Do you suppose KSM might also get a return ticket to Pakistan if obama gets a 2d term?

We should be releasing him at the gates of hell.

40,000 feet, 2000 miles off the coast of Virginia heading 100 degrees “out you go” blind sheik.

So if they riot and threaten us, we reward them by releasing prisoners? What could possibly go wrong?

This is why we need to execute terrorist, quickly, before their allies can attempt extortion.

Just. Wait. Until. Iran. Has. Nuclear. Weapons.
