    Former Weather Underground radical Kathy Boudin - who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard - now holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University's School of Social Work, The Post has learned. Boudin, 69, this year won another academic laurel - being named the Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence at NYU Law School, where last month she gave a lecture on "the politics of parole and re-entry." Boudin's bounce-back into respectability after her 2003 parole comes to light a week before the release of Robert Redford's movie "The Company You Keep,"...

    NEW YORK (AP) - A federal appeals court on Wednesday took a sterner stance toward the upcoming resentencing of a former civil rights lawyer convicted in a terrorism case, saying it has "serious doubts" whether her sentence of just over two years in prison was reasonable. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals added new instructions for the judge who will resentence 70-year-old Lynne Stewart, who was convicted of letting an imprisoned Egyptian terrorist client communicate with followers. The court said the judge should consider whether Stewart's sentence should be increased because of the case's terrorism connections. "We have serious...

    Its 1981, New York City. Barack Obama is residing two blocks away from Weather Underground leader William Ayers. We know very little about Obamas life in NYC during that period; supposedly he transferred from Occidental College and completed undergraduate studies at Columbia University. Obamas academic records and, in fact, the records of his life from those years in New York are lost. [See references at end.] At Occidental, Obama belonged to Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), a radical socialist organization of which the Weather Underground was an off-shoot. Did Obama continue his SDS membership at Columbia? (I read recently...

    Publisher Peter Osnos, who admits to personally working with former Bush White House press secretary Scott McClellan on his new book, What Happened, began his career as an assistant to I.F. Stone, the pro-communist "journalist" named as a Soviet agent of influence who was the uncle of Weather Underground communist terrorist Kathy Boudin. But the connections don't end there. Boudin's son Chesa was raised by Barack Obama associates Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who were Boudin's comrades in the communist terrorist group, after Kathy Boudin went to prison for her involvement in an armed robbery and assault that took the...

    'The notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesn't make much sense.' Actually, what doesn't make much sense is how an intelligent man such as Barack Obama might not see how a relationship with Bill Ayers does in fact reflect on him and his values. Especially when Ayers' response to his "detestable acts" is simply, "I feel we didn't do enough." Oh, really? Of course, one can't blame Obama for being so surprised or offended by...

    On a brisk November morning, Cathy Wilkerson strides down one of the citys finest streets, 11th between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, her glance sweeping across the row of handsome town houses, alighting nowhere in particular. The street I remember, Ms. Wilkerson says, was a lot less polished. If streets had memories, this one would recall a far less polished incarnation of her. On the morning of March 6, 1970, Cathy Wilkerson stumbled onto 11th Street in tatters, bleeding and her clothes all but ripped off her body. Her fathers town house, 18 West 11th Street, which she had borrowed on...

By this, Nadler meant to defend his attacks on the alleged abuses of the (in fact)privileged prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Thanks to the efforts of the...

With the aid of clever handlers, she so successfully suppressed and spun her conduct in Hanoi that many Americans didnt know what she had done there, and, more important, the legal significance.Three years ago, our book, Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam (McFarland & Co.), laid bare...

    1010 WINS) NEW YORK A former radical serving 75 years in prison for the deadly 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored truck has asked to be released from prison. She claims she was not given proper legal representation. 55-year-old Judith Clark filed a petition for habeas corpus yesterday in Federal District Court in Manhattan. Clark argues that the judge at her 1983 state trial violated the constitution when he granted Clark's request to serve as her own lawyer. Clark was convicted of three counts of second-degree murder in the 1981 armed robbery, in which a guard and two policemen were...

Lynne Stewart is a hero of the National Lawyers Guild and a sought-after campus lecturer. While out on bail under indictment for colluding with a terrorist leader, she has been a sought-after speaker for law school audiences who relish her attacks on Attorney General John Ashcroft as a modern-day fascist and on her country for its imperialist and racist policies. Stewart made national headlines in April 2002 when she...

    This week, Kathy Boudin walked free after 22 years in prison. Back in the '70s, Boudin was a member of the radical Weather Underground. In 1981, after years on the run, she participated in the murder of a Brink's guard and two cops in pursuit of her revolutionary goals. Boudin now says she's sorry. She made a terrible mistake. As she told the Parole Board, "I had grown up wanting to be a doctor, and here I am and three people are dead, and I'm responsible for this." Boudin comes from a rich and influential family. In prison, she helped...

    Just about exactly as I am writing this, up in Westchester County, north of New York City, Kathy Boudin, aged 60, is being released from prison after 22 years. Back in 1981, she helped the Black Liberation Army, an extreme-Left terrorist group, rob a Brinks truck. A security guard was killed in the robbery. When the getaway vehicle was stopped at a police roadblock soon after, Ms. Boudin in the passenger seat, her companions gunned down two policemen. For her participation in this robbery and these three murders, Ms. Boudin was sentenced in May, 1984 to serve 20 years to...

    BEDFORD, N.Y. - Over bitter protests from law officers, 1960s radical Kathy Boudin was released from prison Wednesday after serving 22 years for murder in an armored car heist that left two policemen and a security guard dead. "I'm physically ill right now," said Brent Newbury, president of the Rockland County Patrolmen's Benevolent Association. "I can't believe I just saw Kathy Boudin walk out of prison." Boudin, 60, a former Weather Underground member, was granted parole last month despite heavy opposition of relatives, friends and colleagues of the slain men. On Wednesday morning, she walked out of the Bedford Hills...

    <p>September 17, 2003 -- It was hard from Day One to understand the rationale for paroling Kathy Boudin, the one-time child of privilege turned revolutionary urban terrorist. Apparently Gov. Pataki had some questions, too, because big changes at the state parole board are accompanying Boudin's walk to freedom this morning. While Pataki's office last night denied involvement, Parole Board Chairman Brion Davis is said no longer to be involved in its day-to-day affairs.</p>
