As you may know, Egypt’s new President Mohamed Morsi has called upon the United States to release Omar Abdel-Rahman (a.k.a. “The Blind Sheikh”) during his inaugural speech. The Egyptian born cleric is currently serving a life sentence for his involvement in planning the first WTC bombing in 1993 and planning terrorist attacks against other landmarks mostly situated in New York City.
It doesn’t scare me that Morsi would call for The Blind Sheikh’s release. That should come as a surprise to no one. But what scares me is that it isn’t inconceivable that U.S. officials could one day release him in some kind of misguided attempt to appease the Muslim Brotherhood. If the Brits were prepared to release the Lockerbie bomber then what is to prevent the U.S. government from releasing Abdel-Rahman?
