O eyes ‘blind sheik’ release (GOPers blast idea to appease Egypt)
NY Post ^ | 9/20/12 | Josh Margolin

The Obama administration is weighing the release of blind Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman — the spiritual adviser to the 1993 World Trade Center bombers — in a stunning goodwill gesture toward Egypt that has touched off a political firestorm, officials said yesterday.

The Egyptian government “asked for his release,” an administration source told The Post — and Rep. Peter King (R-LI) confirmed the request is being considered.

The White House, State Department and Justice Department each issued statements denying any deal is in the works, but, “There’s no way to believe anything they say,” said Andrew McCarthy, the former assistant US attorney who prosecuted Abdel-Rahman. “I believe there may already be a nod-and-wink agreement in place.”

It's unbelievable, except for, well, you know ... it being totally believable.

The "Neville Chamberlain" of US Presidents.

If Obama is defeated he will pardon him next year otherwise the Sheik will have to wait another four years. Maybe someone will give him the shiv before that happens.

I guess Little Boy Zer0 is feeling pretty confident about coasting to reelection.

Mr. BS (Blind Sheik, aka "The Great Muzzie Santa Claus Impersonator) should be released.

We owe Egypy nothing. They owe us billions.
This is looking like the Lockerbie bomber senario only worse.

Neville Chamberlain was a naive fool who didn't want to rerun Somme and Passchendaele.

He didn't spend every waking moment coming up with new ways to destroy Britain.

They let the ambassador-killer go from Gitmo to a Libyan prison, and despite there being an (wink, wink) agreement in place to keep him there, guess what!?!

The administration sees that they haven't had to endure any uprising of the citizenry for that one, so why should they for the (deaf, dumb and) blind guy (Who?).

They'll let him go, and assure us he'll be kept in a prison in his "home country" for humanitarian and health reasons.

We're witnessing a multitude of serial acts of treason, abetted by the media.

Come to a compromise with Egypt. Keep the Blind Sheik’s body in the U.S. and send his head back to Egypt.

It is outrageous that to compare Obama with Neville Chamberlain.

Neville Chamberlain was an honorable man who misunderstood his adversaries while seeking peace. Though he was working with a flawed model for diplomatic conduct, Chamberlain genuinely believed that he was acting in Britain’s interests.

Obama, on the other hand, is more like Quisling.

The blind appeasing the blind...may they both fall into a ditch.

And may the spikes at the bottom be anointed with excrement.

Holding murder's and those who elicit war against the USA and West is a stupid policy; maybe we should execute these Cretans so that their followers may know what fate awaits them. Detaining the enemy shows a certain weakness in that our two-party system is always exploited for political gain at the expense of the Country's security. Kill the SOB.

I had also heard that Eygpt wants the producer of the “Innocence of Muslims” as well as Terry Jones turned over to an Islamic court.

Absolutely not surprising and I expect it will be done. Let us not forget: This is a President whose first and foremost concern is assisting Islamic terrorists which is why on his very first day in office, the very FIRST thing he did was try to close down Gitmo. Above EVERYTHING else, this was his #1 priority the minute he stepped into the Oval office on January 20, 2009.

And what has been doing ever since? Nothing else but assisting radical Muslims while doing his utmost to destroy the USA. He has been doing NOTHING ELSE! He killed Bin Laden? BS, he tried to prevent it and it would never have been done if it weren’t for Hillary Clinton putting him on the spot. This POS has done NOTHING else but help radical Islam since day one! Like the question states: “Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?” Well radical Islam certainly is, isn’t it? They now control two new countries and can attack our embassies and kill our Ambassadors without any retribution. Iran is certainly doing better aren’t they? They sure been mouthing off a lot because they have no fear. They got the Kenyan backing them.

He SHOULD be released back to Egypt.

From 30000 feet. From a B 1. In a zipped-up mummy sleeping bag.

Um, better would be to immerse him in a vat of liquid nitrogen then ‘release’ him from 30,000 feet for a nice million point landing in Egypt.

David Burge (Iowahawk) has the right idea. We want him and they want him so let’s send them half of him and we keep the other half.

My nephew, Sgt. Evan Vela Carnahan, one of The leavenworth 10, political scapegoat, political prisoner, just had another parole hearing in D.C.

That parole was granted.

Sec. of the Army John “The Asshole” McHugh shot it down.

Our boys are rotting in our own prisons and obama wants to let ANOTHER muzzy go?

F@#K THAT.
