NLG Lawyer’s 10-Year Sentence For Aiding Terrorist Approved; Obama Might Release Terrorist to Egypt

Earlier I had posted about Lynne Stewart, a lawyer who worked for the NLG, the National Lawyer’s Guild. The NLG pays particular attention to helping the Occupy Wall Street maggots by giving them free legal advice and representation.

It was through their intercession that the Occupy LA degenerates had a slap on the wrist while causing tens of millions of dollars of damage to Los Angeles.

Stewart, as one of the NLG’s lawyers, represented Abdel Rahman, otherwise known as the “Blind Sheikh” during his trial for ordering the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center in New York, that resulted in six deaths and injured more than a 1,000.

NLG lawyer Lynne Stewart was convicted for, “conspiring to provide material support to the conspiracy to kill and kidnap persons in a foreign country, and with conspiring to conceal and disguise Abdel Rahman’s service as personnel to prepare for and carry out that conspiracy.”

Stewart had originally faced up to 5 years in prison, and was only given 28 months, but it was just announced that the extension of her sentence to 10 years has been approved despite her protestations:

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said Thursday that it disagreed with Stewart’s claim that her sentence was “shockingly high.” It is accusing the now-disbarred lawyer of exhibiting a “stark inability to understand the seriousness of her crimes.”

Now compare her treatment to that of the Blind Sheikh. In March of this year, it was reported that Obama was in negotiations to release Rahman to Egypt:

The Arabic-language newspaper al-Arabiya reported on Tuesday that the Obama administration has offered to release Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman to Egypt. Abdel Rahman is the infamous “Blind Sheikh” who was convicted in 1995 for masterminding a terrorist war against the United States that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a plot to bomb New York City landmarks. According to the late Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda’s founder, Abdel Rahman is also responsible for the fatwa — the necessary Islamic edict — that green-lighted the 9/11 attacks.

Supposedly Obama was using Rahman’s freedom as a bargaining chip to try to have Egypt release Americans they had accused of spying and were threatening to prosecute. While the crisis was averted and buried with the overthrow of Mubarak, it showed Obama’s willingness to hand freedom to dangerous terrorists in his foreign policy dealings.

Frank Gaffney describes how such a deal would be brokered:

 Abdul Rahman’s return to Cairo – a jihadist triumph that would likely make the Islamists’ rapture at the return of Ayatollah Khomeini to Iran in 1979 pale by comparison – has been urged most recently during high-level meetings in Washington by Hani Nour Eldin. Eldin is a member of the Blind Sheikh’s designated terrorist organization, Gama’a al-Islamiyya. An incredulous House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King (R-NY) has written Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano asking why such a dangerous individual was granted a visa by the Obama administration and for her position on the release Abdul Rahman.

Just today, it was reported that the new Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi vows to have the Blind Sheikh freed from US custody:

Egypt’s president-elect Mohamed Morsihas vowed to free the blind sheikh jailed in the US for a plot to blow up New York City landmarks.

In his first public speech, addressing tens of thousands of people in Tahrir Square, Morsi promised to work to free Omar Abdel-Rahman, the spiritual leader of men convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Let’s connect some dots – Obama has shown a willingness to negotiate the Blind Sheikh’s freedom to gain concessions from Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood gains control of Egypt and the president immediately promises to win the freedom of  that same terrorist.

So, the naive idiot lawyer who helped a convicted terrorist pass notes to his friends in order to continue to organize their evil deeds against America has had her prison sentence extended to ten years, while the exact same evil terrorist who helped murder 6 of our citizens and injure a thousand more might be released to Egypt to score some political points for Obama.

Thank goodness the media is reporting on these ridiculous events and pressuring Obama not to act stupidly.


The other thing to be said about this for those who keep harping on the moderate nature of the Muslim Brotherhood and how all people just want freedom – what does it say about President Morsi and the Egyptian public that his promise to free a terrorist that ordered an attack on America gains him political points?

Not anything good.
