Lynne Stewart, who was convicted of smuggling messages from Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman (the Blind Sheikh who masterminded the bombing of the World Trade Center) to his terrorist followers in Egypt, has been released early from prison thanks to the Obama administration. She was released on grounds of compassion because she is terminally ill.
District Judge John Koeltl ordered the release based on a request from the director of the Bureau of Prisons through the office of U.S. Attorney. Judge Koeltl previously had denied Stewarts request for release because it was not supported by the Bureau of Prisons. In other words, Stewarts release is the handiwork of the Obama administration.
The Bureau of Prisons claims broad discretion in deciding whether to file requests for compassionate release, and it exercises that discretion to reject such release in all but a few cases. According to this analysis, the BOP, which is responsible for more than 218,000 prisoners, filed only 30 motions for early release in 2011. Since 1992, the annual average number of prisoners who received compassionate release has been less than two dozen.
Lynne Stewart has received extraordinarily favorable treatment.
Lynne Stewart is also a terrorist. Not because, as a lawyer, she represented a notorious terrorist, but because she enabled that terrorist to communicate with his terrorist operatives.
By enabling the extraordinary release of Stewart out of sympathy for her medical condition, did those in the administration responsible for this outcome among whom, presumably, are Attorney General Holder and President Obama show themselves to be terrorist sympathizers? That conclusion seems too sweeping. But I think its fair to say that they sympathized with this particular terrorist.

The White Hut lives for the Blind Sheik.
Manpads for al Qaeda? No problem.
Freeing his personal lawyer/terrorist. No problem.
Is it too late for the EXEMPT, hated, drunk, whoring
and treasonous, US Congress to awaken?
What’s the medical condition?
Liberals empathize with evil. Governor Dukakis allowed men in prison for life to have weekend passes. (Until it was shown Willie Horton was busy killing people on his hours outside.) Obama has given billions to terrorist related organizations and some that are supporting active terrorism against Israel; Hamas. (Most recently, $440 million.) I read an article that put forth the thesis that they do this because it’s not logical. For thousands of years, they “reason,” people have done the logical thing and we’re not living in utopia yet, therefore we must do the opposite of logic and reason and we’ll find utopia. Unfortunately, the rest of us have to live with (or die because of) the results.
Lots of people have that who haven’t even been diagnosed yet. It’s not a reason for them to be released for paying off their bills etc, and they haven’t been convicted of a treasonous crime.
And just why would the Obama ibn Obama NOT pardon this person?
Who was the terrorist released from prison who was supposedly being shown compassion because he had only 6 months to live and was alive some 18 months after his release. He was imprisoned in a foreign country, not sure which one but it was about 2-2.5 yrs ago.
Wait until odumbo’s last days and watch for the release of every political prisoner in Gitmo and it will be pardons all around.
He will get his last shots in and they too will be devastating to our once great country.
“Impeach” is too kind.
I give a d—n.
She’ll probably live for years like the Lockerbee bomber.
Britain released the Lockerbie bomber to Libya.
Lockerbie bomber ‘was released by Britain because of £400million arms deal with Libya’Tony Blair discussed air defence deal with Libyan dictator
Briefing note written by British ambassador said Libya was linking the contract with a prisoner transfer agreement
Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was released from jail in 2009 on ‘compassionate grounds’ because he had terminal cancer
Ultimately the defence contract was never signed by Libya
That was the Lockerbee bomber, and I believe he went to Libya.
Yeah, she'll experience an "amazing recovery," and then claim that prison conditions are killing people who would otherwise be fine.
Actually, I would rather see them hanged all together on one giant gallows at Michigan Stadium because it holds more spectators.
“I give a dn.”
I know you do and so do most of the rest of us, but no one with the authority to DO anything will.
Terrorists kill innocent people, and get sent home from prison when they get sick from cancer.
Gotti killed a lowlife like Paul Castellano, and died in prison from his cancer.
I don’t approve of Gotti, but who committed the more heinous crime.
