#1 I Will Do Everything in My Power to Secure Freedom’ For the Blind Sheikh09-30-2012, 12:06 AM
Just weeks after TheBlaze’s 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.

I have no doubt in my mind that Obama, in one way or another, will release this guy. If he is re-elected, he'll send him to Egypt but if he loses to Romney, he'll commute his sentence.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

Shades of Libya and PanAmIt's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

I say execute the guy and send him back to Egypt in a body bag with a note attached to him stating that we will do the same to any terrorist who tries anything with us.
I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....
