Never let a crisis go to waste. This is how Obama agitates. How he tries to distract from his own failures on the economy, jobs, no budget four years running, inflation, record levels of food stamps, disability and poverty in the U.S. to name just a few. via State Department in Talks to Transfer Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman to Egypt, Source Says | TheBlaze.com.
The U.S. State Department is currently in negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as “the Blind Sheikh,” for humanitarian and health reasons, a source close to the the Obama administration told TheBlaze.
The Department of Justice, however, told TheBlaze that Rahman is serving a life sentence and is not considered for possible “release.” Previous calls to the State Department were referred to the Department of Justice and so far, the State Department has neither confirmed nor denied the report.
Glenn Beck revealed the controversial news on his show Monday.
The Blind Sheikh is currently serving a life sentence in American prison for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, but the newly-elected Islamist government in Egypt has been actively petitioning his release.
Make no mistake, he’d do this in a heartbeat. Just as he approved release of the Pan Am bomber and cut the sentence of an al Qaeda financier and is negotiating to release Taliban, he won’t hesitate to do this when the time is right. Right now, it is a convenient distraction.
Recall, it was just a few weeks ago that Obama hosted a known Muslim terrorist in the White House to discuss the release of the Blind Sheik. A week later Egypt’s new leader vows to free sheik jailed in U.S. for ’93 WTC bombing.
