House Members: Holder and Clinton Considering Release of ‘Blind Sheikh’
The Jewish Press ^ | September 20, 2012 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus

Posted on 09/20/2012 9:24:55 AM PDT by Zionista Feminista

In a strongly worded letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, eight members of congress have demanded that a request to release Omar Abdel-Rahman from federal prison be rejected. Abdel-Rahman, known as the “blind sheikh,” inspired the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and is serving a life sentence for his role in a plot to conduct assassinations and destroy bridges, tunnels and other landmarks in New York City.

It is believed that the unrest blanketing much of the Middle East last week was inspired at least in part by the demands that the Blind Sheikh be released, and that any consideration of such a request was inspired by an effort to quell the widespread anti-American fury.

The letter sent by Representative Pete King (R-NY), Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security and seven other key members of congressional leadership warned of the consequences of appeasing terrorism through such a blatant act of submission:

Yeah, that will show them how much the US cares about them and I am certain they will not attack the US again. /s

The blind sheikh was the first person convicted under this statute since the Civil War. Nonetheless, the newly-elected government in Egypt has indicated that his release is amongst its top foreign policy priorities.

What a bumbling bunch of foreign policy buffoons we have in the cabinet.

The same bunch who chastised Romney who spoke up and with Common sense!

If you release him, the mobs will then demand the release of KSM and maybe even Sirhan Sirhan.

Personally, I think it’s great if they release the guy.

As long as they kill him beforehand.

Preferably slowly and painfully.

Rest assured that Hillary is "deeply concerned" and is "monitoring the situation very closely".

My guess he will be released after the elections in November? No matter who wins. obamma does not have to be concerned what others think about him, either party.

Not a bad start. How about: have *female* jailers strip him naked, shave his beard and body hair with a straight razor, and then give him a pig fat soap bath, in cold water?

Dude’ll expire from a stroke on his own. :-)

Two points: Didn’t Hitlery have her hound-of-a-husband pardon some Puerto Rican thugs as she ran for a senate seat from NY?
Didn’t a Gitmo detainee we released to Libya wind up leading the assault on the US embassy in Benghazi?

Only one more full month left for these traitors to hurt our country without the label “lame ducks”.

Good idea, but I like this better. Chip him, track, wait until he stops moving, then drop a 3000 lb. bomb on him.

That way you get him AND a bunch of his friends - big gain for civilization.

Of course, this IS the administration that lost track of 2000 firearms in Mexico, so maybe not...

“...the newly-elected government in Egypt has indicated that his release is amongst its top foreign policy priorities.”

Says a lot about what the muz-brotherhood is all about. I’d argue is says even more about the Obama administration to even consider the notion of freeing this terrorist.

Over the last few years I’ve found myself saying that is seems like hardly a day goes by without being shocked, disguested, and/or alarmed with actions by this administration. Seems like a rational leader of the free world would tell the Egyptians that their request is absolutely not something we will even remotely consider. Period.

Holder and Clinton Considering Release of ‘Blind Sheikh’
The economy has damn near collapsed, Americans are still dying across the ME, our embassies are ablaze, gas is $4+ /gallon, the 47% (aka - the takers of society) are fast becoming a majority and the national debt is over $16 trillion.
If Romney can't beat this @ssclown in the WH and his minions, I swear I'm moving to, to, somewhere ... New Zealand or Costa Rica or ...

This will guarantee Romney wins if they do it and he calls them on it every single day afterwards until the election is over.

I’d like to see Romney challenge Obama to promise NOT to release this murderer. Of course, he’ll have to give some background, and to also talk a bit about the history of appeasement and the idiot moves that this particular bunch of morons have made since 2009. This is a great opportunity for Romney to speak about his foreign policy, and to make Obama look like (that much more of) a Moslem-sympathizing appeaser.

Obama meets with Omar (the Blind Sheikh for those in Rio Linda)

Obama: " OK Abdel-Rahman, I got your one way to Cairo on e-bay"

Omar: "you can call me Omar"

Obama: "Thanks Omar...and I got you a disguise as those pesky FReepers have an eye out for you"

Omar: "Let me consult with you later on that"

Obama: "I got it covered, what with the FEMA camps and a billion rounds of ammo"

Omar: "Keep up the good work brother from another mother"

I believe he should be released 30,000 feet over the Atlantic.

Send him back with a bullet in his head, wrapped in bacon, and a pork chop in his mouth.

We should fly him back to his country and as the plane passes overhead, open the door and release him to his believers.

After covering him with pig guts and strapping on a nuke vest of course.

No,no. They are not using the word ‘release’.

It’s ‘transfer’....

Bill Ayers is a big Sirhan fan. I'm surprised he hasn't been released already.
