Would be nice if UK diplomats worked nearly as hard for the release of British women held in Muslim prisons for being in the same room with a man as they did for a Muslim terrorist who happened to hold a British passport.
British diplomats recommended that a British man detained in Kenya 2 1/2 years ago on suspicion of attempting to join Islamic fighters in Somalia be freed, the lawyer who represented him said Thursday. The man was let go and last week allegedly helped butcher a British soldier on the streets of London.
Michael Adebolajo’s lawyer, Wycliffe Makasembo, said a letter from the British High Commission in Nairobi recommended that the man be released because there was no tangible evidence to link him to the crime.
“They noted that the suspects had not yet crossed over to Somalia and thus, there was no cause to charge them,” Makasembo told a reporter.
The good news is that there is finally cause. All it took was one dead British soldier. And that is what happens when countries tolerate Islamists and wait around until they finally go from talking to doing to doing something really bad.
