US Judge backs Palestinian Authority's bid to conceal memo linking it to 2002 bombing
NY Post ^ | January 14, 2013 | BRUCE GOLDING

Posted on 01/14/2013 8:13:42 AM PST by ilcenter

A Us judge has ruled that the Palestinian Authority has the right to cover up a memo linking it to a suicide bombing that killed two teen American citizens in Israel, The Post has learned.

The document — accidentally handed over to lawyers suing the authority for $300 million on behalf of the teens’ parents — reveals a “close relationship” between the bomber and a captain in the Palestinian Authority security forces who planned the terror attack, court papers say.

The two-page memo, written in April 2012 by Maj. Ziad Abu Hamid of the authority’s General Intelligence Service, also details “at least six other critical facts” about the 2002 bombing and “clearly establishes the defendants’ material support and liability,” the federal court filing says.

“But Washington, DC, federal Judge Richard Leon
(helping terrorists murder innocents)
ordered the memo returned or destroyed
after the TERRORISTS’ lawyers claimed
it was “privileged and protected” information.”

I don’t get it. How could a document they have already turned over, mistake or no, be retroactively considered privileged information? Attorneys have already seen it.
What kind of a judge is this?

Justice in America died a long time ago. Liberal lawmakers and lawyers killed it.

Extending that principle, if a suspect accidentally hands over the murder weapon, with his finger prints all over it, it should be returned to him so he can destroy it. What am I missing?

Oh America, when will you hold these treasonous judiciary accountable.

There is no "sane" reason for this POS judge to be on the bench.

How long will God continue to hold us in grace before His perfect righteousness demands that He withdraws that grace.

And yet as a country do we not deserve His wrath?

“What kind of a judge is this?”

I wouldn’t feel badly if one of the parents decided to do away with this pos “judge”. I wonder if a jury could even bring itself to convict that parent? I wouldn’t.

The LORD rebuke Judge Leon, and strongly. There is no reason for him to do this other than to empower the USA’s enemies.

Well, of course. The Palestinian Authority is Fatah / PLO under another cloak.

It made me want to puke as I watched Arthur Blessit (the man who carries the Cross all over the world) yak on about meeting with Arafat and “praying” for him. It was on TV late last night, or more accurately, very early this morning.

Blessit is praying with Arafat that there would be no more killing in the region and Arafat opens his eyes repeatedly with a smirk on his face. Because death and terrorism were a way of “life” for Arafat. Arafat should have been taken out with a Hellfire missile, just like Sheik Yassin and Rantissi.

They all made “careers” out of jihad terrorism.

The difference between physical evidence in a criminal case, and a document made confidential by law in a civil case. If an attorney, or his/her secretary accidentally hits "CC all parties to this case" when trying to email a confidential document to one co-defendant (or co-plaintiff), it doesn't mean that the other side gets to introduce the confidential document at trial.

Of course they now know about it, and can try to get the document from another source, so that it can be admitted.

It’s privileged under the conspirator-confederate relationship.
