Posted on 09/28/2012 8:46:45 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Just weeks after TheBlazes exclusive report that claimed the U.S. State Department was actively considering transferring Omar Abdel-Rahman, or the Blind Sheikh to Egypt, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi publicly called on the U.S. to allow the convicted terrorist to serve out the rest of his sentence at home in Egypt, state media reported on Thursday, according to AFP.
I will do everything in my power to secure freedom for detainees, including Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman, Morsi said.
What I want is to intervene for humanitarian reasons, not to interfere in a court ruling, Morsi reportedly told members of the Egyptian community in New York while he was in the U.S. for the UN General Assembly.
The Blind Sheikh was sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, plotting to bomb other New York sites and plotting to assassinate former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
We want his family to be allowed to visit him and to serve his sentence in Egypt as part of a prisoner swap between Egypt and the United States, Morsi said, according to the official MENA news agency.

The Blind Sheikh aka BS.
Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi asks Egyptian Consulate to “monitor Eltahawy case”
He is a dictator with no parliament. Obama is Morsi only supporter. Not even the Egyptian military. Only the MB and the Taliban..al Queda in Egypt. America’s allies.
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."
Both of them need to reach room temperature.
If the islamist in the White House is reelected this will be a done deal.
I LIKE that. A lot.
Doesn’t the pres usually pardon people after they lose the election and before they leave office? Just saying.
I would have no problem whatsoever with that.
The sad fact is: who would miss the mid-east Muslims if they disappeared off the face of the earth? They contribute virtually nothing as far as science and technology....only strife, misery, and persecution of women and non-Muslims.
Sadly, most in the world would breath a sigh of relief. Some would cheer. Know that there are hundreds and hundreds of millions who are innocent that would be eliminated also. I think supporting rebellions such as the one in Iran is the way to go. That and forced religious freedom would go a long way to correct the problems in the area.
And for all those people who claim that eligibility for POTUSA depends only on being born on USA soil the children of Morsi born in the USA while he was ‘professoring’ here are eligible to come back and spend some/enough time to gain eligibility. I don’t believe the Founders intended such to happen and that is why the parent’s USA citizenship was also to be required. The Founders were way ahead of the times in their determinations. All citizens dedicated to the Constitution should be thankful to Them and to God for their prescience.
