Skip to comments.Will Obama Free the Blind Sheik? (Former AG Mukasey: Impeach and remove Obama if he does)

Are senior Obama administration officials considering transferring to Egypt a poisonously influential Islamist cleric serving a life term in federal prison for trying to unleash a war of urban terrorism in the United States? That's the impression several officials have given over the past three months, apparently out of fear that if the cleric dies in U.S. custody, American outposts in the Middle East could be overrun by vengeful mobs.
Omar Abdel Rahman, the so-called Blind Sheik, is one of the world's leading theologians of terrorism. Abdel Rahman, who has diabetes and is in his mid-70s, is confined at the U.S. Bureau of Prisons medical facility in Butner, N.C. He served as spiritual adviser to El Sayid Nosair (in connection with the 1990 assassination in Manhattan of Meir Kahane, a right-wing Israeli politician) and to the band of terrorists who carried out the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center that killed six and wounded numerous others (an operation undertaken in part to free Nosair from jail).
All of this plays out in the context of an Obama administration that hasn't hesitated to employ executive orders to get around Congress, led by a president who was caught on a "hot mike" assuring Russia's leaders that if he wins re-election he will have more "flexibility" to accommodate Russian demands that the U.S. curtail missile defense in Europe.
It appears that the only course open now is for Congress to demand an unequivocal statement from the State Department and the White House that the U.S. will not transfer or release Abdel Rahman under any circumstances. Absent such assurance, it may be time for Congress to make clear that such a transfer or release could be considered the kind of gross betrayal of public trust that would justify removal from high office.

after the election..I think he has already sold out Israel
The MSM pimps are avoiding this story like the plague.
...a president who was caught on a “hot mike”
Was he blowing hot mike or sitting in his lap?
So we cannot any longer keep these theologians of terrorism terrorist types in custody on US soil because they could die and we fear the blowback?
Can they impeach him for exercising his constitutional power of pardon. I wouldn’t put it past him to try this approach as opposed to releasing him to Egypt.
Obama denies plans for this, but we all know Obama.
That means nothing.
That’s where the saying, “robbing the cradle” comes from.
Child pornography should not be an offence in the muslim world and it won’t be in this country much longer judging by the speed with which Islam is spreading.
Yoo-hoo, y’all congresscritters wake up, wake up you sleepy heads.
As the Democrats demonstrated in 1998-99, impeachment is ultimately political. A simple majority in the House can impeach for any reason and if 2/3rds of the Senate vote to convict and remove that’s it. No Supreme Court review.
if reelected 10 seconds later.
Obama: " OK Abdel-Rahman, I got your one way to Cairo on e-bay"
Omar: "you may 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 my brother from another mother"
Obama: "And how was the American culture field trip to a noodling competition ?
Omar: ..."I caught an alligator."
“Are senior Obama administration officials considering transferring to Egypt a poisonously influential Islamist cleric serving a life term in federal prison for trying to unleash a war of urban terrorism in the United States?”
Impeach? The GOP impeach? Is this a joke?
Pardon him and tell him he's going home. Then fly him to Tel Aviv and tell him he's in Cairo.
obammy could be caught smoking crack and having sex with a 12 year old boy on tape and the media would still be 150 percent behind his re-election and as for impeachment? ya gots to be kidding and cause a race rebellion???
Wow, that guy said it better than anyone else ever has!
I am sending that to friends and family.

Could be a lot of “lame duck” presidential pardons coming if Obummer gets dumped.
