Obama Frees a Terror Lawyer


stewart“Oh, Muslims everywhere!” Omar Abdel Rahman wrote from his American prison cell. “Cut the transportation of their countries, tear it apart, destroy their economy, burn their companies, eliminate their interests, sink their ships, shoot down their planes, kill them on the sea, air, on land.”

This fatwa, or one very similar to it, was distributed to Al Qaeda terrorists in terror training camps while Mohammed Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind sheikh’s son, lectured them on their duties as Jihadists.

While Al Qaeda was working on terror plots that would eventually develop into the attacks of September 11, the blind sheikh was producing threatening sermons from prison warning that America would bring “destruction” on itself if it interfered with the forces of Islam.

On September 2000, a year before the attack, Bin Laden released a video together with Rahman’s son, vowing to free the blind sheikh while Rahman’s son urged Muslims to “move forward and shed blood.”

A year later they did.

It wasn’t easy for the blind terror chief to remain relevant in prison. His devoted attorney Lynne Stewart helped keep Omar Abdel Rahman relevant by helping him pass messages to his followers from prison. After Stewart’s crimes were exposed and this lifeline was cut, the blind sheikh became so forgotten that Bin Laden talked of avenging his death even though Omar Abdel-Rahman was still among the living.

Omar Abdel Rahman’s followers carried out the first attack against the World Trade Center. Ramzi Yousef, the perpetrator of the World Trade Center bombing, was a follower of the blind sheikh, and his uncle, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, was also the architect of the September 11 attacks.

Afterward, the blind sheikh’s followers unspooled a terror plot larger in scale than September 11 targeting New York landmarks.

Lynne Stewart didn’t just conspire to aid any terrorist. The man she was aiding was a crucial figure in a wave of terror rolling around the world from Egypt to Afghanistan. Islamic terrorists, including Al Qaeda, hung on his words and derived inspiration from his incitement to violence.

Stewart was present when Rahman was told that the bombing of the USS Cole had been carried out in his name and that there were plans to carry out further operations unless he was released. While the sheikh and his follower talked of terror, Lynne Stewart sat and scribbled, pretending to take notes so that the prison guards would not become suspicious.

In an interview, Lynne Stewart suggested that maintaining the blind sheikh’s “exchange value” was part of her job. “It could be very important that that person is still perceived as worth exchanging, perhaps, for someone else,” she suggested.

“Once he… becomes a non-person on the international scene, he loses currency, he loses credibility. He is no longer someone who perhaps would be viable for people to consider in some kind of swap or exchange.”

Stewart was admitting that her goal was to maintain Omar Abdel Rahman as a viable terrorist kingpin whose release his followers would want to obtain through a prisoner exchange.

A year after Rahman was sentenced to life in prison, terrorists from his Muslim Brotherhood splinter organization, the Islamic Group, carried out the Luxor Massacre in Egypt. European tourists had their ears and noses cut off before being killed. The attack had been carried out to take hostages to exchange for Lynne Stewart’s client. A note calling for the release of Rahman was found in a disemboweled body.

When asked about the Luxor Massacre, Stewart accused Americans of being “two-faced about violence” adding that, “The basic desire of people to be free hasn’t changed. And I’m not sure that I want to second-guess what methods other people use.”

In the massacre that Lynne Stewart refused to second-guess; the methods included the murder of Shaunnah Turner, a 5-year-old girl.

Rosemarie Dousse, an elderly survivor of the massacre, said, that the killers “took all the young women, the girls, and disappeared with them. I don’t know where they went with the women, but they hurt them. We could hear screams of pain.”

Stewart continued to work for Rahman even after his conviction and played her part in helping him pass along messages of terror.

Finally a year before the September 11 attacks, the terror lawyer went too far and held a press conference confirming that the blind sheikh wanted an end to the temporary ceasefire between the Islamic Group and the Egyptian government that had been brokered the year of the Luxor Massacre.

When Lynne Stewart announced an end to the ceasefire, she was doing nothing less than calling for the murder of more Shaunnah Turners and she has never apologized for it.

Lynne Stewart was no longer functioning as an attorney. Instead she was acting as the spokeswoman for a terrorist organization. After September 11 fulfilled the fatwa of her client, she expressed her support for Osama bin Laden and said, “I’m pretty inured to the notion that in a war or in an armed struggle, people die.”

The people in the World Trade Center ”never knew what hit them. They had no idea that they could ever be a target for somebody’s wrath, just by virtue of being American. They took it personally. And actually, it wasn’t a personal thing.”

Lynne Stewart’s career of defending domestic terrorists had prepared her to take this callous view of the lives of the men, women and children murdered by her clients. Stewart had defended Weather Underground terrorists not for money, but because she agreed with their views.

“I am guilty of no crime,” Stewart has said. And she has gone on playing the victim while showing not an ounce of remorse.

“Oh, I would do it again in a minute,” she told an interviewer. And now that Obama has decided to set her free; she may get the chance.

Stewart has cancer and the Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Attorney’s office asked for her compassionate release. The request has been granted.

Compassionate releases are rare, but the old radical has friends in high places. Less than a dozen prisoners are granted compassionate release each year. Lynne Stewart won the lottery, but it’s doubtful that luck had anything to do with it.

Holder has filled the Justice Department with terrorist sympathizers and made it a place where Lynne Stewart would feel right at home.

The American Taliban’s lawyer is now the Acting Associate Attorney General and the Principal Deputy Solicitor General was the lawyer for Bin Laden’s driver. They join at least seven other lawyers who have defended terrorists. Lawyers whom Attorney General Eric Holder declared were “patriots” for representing terrorists.

The Second Circuit Court wrote that Stewart suffered from a “stark inability to understand the seriousness of her crimes.” But Lynne Stewart did understand. What she did not accept was that they were crimes. That is something that she has in common with Attorney General Eric Holder.

In her opening argument for the blind sheikh, Stewart contended that ”he has advocated for the suffering of his people at home, in Egypt. He has advocated by any means necessary, and that is not acceptable to this government.”

Omar Abdel Rahman’s idea of advocacy was mass murder. So was Lynne Stewart’s.

Now Stewart is being treated with the compassion that she denied his many victims; including Shaunnah Turner. And if Lynne Stewart lives to continue her crimes, she will repay that compassion the same way that her favorite terrorists always have.

    This is the face of evil. Stewart is evil. Holder is evil. Obama is evil. And like the the great perpetrators of evil throughout human history, they are all incapable of seeing themselves for who they are. They hide behind ideologies that offer the cover of tautological rationalizations for any evil they commit, but their delusions, ideological or otherwise, can’t exonerate them from their actions and the consequences of those actions.

    Obama, Holder, et al. are sneering at America. They obviously believe the revolution is complete enough that they have nothing to worry about. Will America continue to tolerate these warped, depraved enemies of all that is good or sane? The hour is getting late.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      The socialist hag lynne stewart has the blood of the dead of the 1993 truck bombing of the WTC on her wicked hands.

      If the pig lynne stewart is dying, why did she walk out of prison. She should be wheeled out on a stretcher with an IV in her wicked arm.

      The wicked judge behind this “compassionate” release spit on the families of the victims of the 1993 bombing.

    • timpottorff

      Very well said. These people are evil. They are frozen solid in their own smugness, convinced of their correctness, with no remorse for the deaths they are responsible for.
      My solace is knowing that they cannot escape the final judgement of the truly Righteous Judge. They are mortal and their time is drawing near.

      • truebearing

        Thanks.

        By now I would hope that the majority of people in this country are aware of the evil residing in the Whitehouse. What more does Obama have to do to wake people up… hold a press conference where he announces all Christians and Jews will be crucified?

      • Guest

        And, unless they’ve lied (as they are so frequently wont to do), Stewart will be getting hers. Sooner, one would hope, rather than later.

  • Hank Rearden

  • Elizabeth Cape Cod

    I can only hope she dies real soon, unlike Megrahi, who was also granted compassionate release from a prison in the UK for his involvement in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103. He went on to live 3 more years in freedom.

    • defcon 4

      Was it established that Megrahi actually had cancer? Ditto for Lynne Stewart.

    • alericKong

      A year from now she announces she’s in remission and defects to one of the homelands of her beloved “freedom fighters” like Iran, Algeria, Libya, or Pakistan.

      They end up kidnapping her, none of her rich leftist lawyer buddies pay up, and her clients kill her.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” – Cicero

      I’ll bet there are many corrupt scumbags in the US federal government that would like to have anyone who supports the US Constitution and Bill of Rights declared a traitor.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        They’re called “socialists”.

        Coming soon, The US Constitution will be declared ‘unconstitutional’, and replaced with the declaration of dependence…

    It’s not really a compassionate release, it’s cruel and unusual punishment. Once she’s out she’ll have to treat her cancer using Obamacare.

    • MLCBLOG

      Ha ha ha!! Thanks for a good laugh.

      • Bert

        Unless Obama makes an exception and arranges for her to get top quality treatment at high taxpayer expense. I would volunteer to treat her for free as long a I am not accountable for any “mistakes”.

    And that is why a death penalty is important.
    Also, this is what happens when a country elects an affirmative- action president and his crew.

    • James Simpson

      It is also why Democrat politicans have recently introduced a bill that would ban the death penalty for treason. Are they worried? Yes, they are.

  • Mo86

    Why wasn’t this traitor given the death penalty and immediately executed?

  • Pat McBride

    We used to hang traitors.
    Now they sit in sit in the White House when they aren’t golfing or fund raising.

  • Infidel4Ever

    Nothing surprises me anymore. When you have an anti-American government led by a traitor like we do, it’s par for the course. Pun intended.

  • 11bravo

    There were many other charges that could have been brought against her. Maybe the next prez will bring her up on those – AND LET HER DIE IN PRISON!
    I hope someone asks Hillary, and what ever gaggle of presidential candidates thinks about this decision. Do they agree with it, or not?

  • West_Coast

    Obama and Co. are the most vile, evil, loathsome, insidious, racist, feckless, petulant, nefarious, narcissistic, arrogant, despicable, delusional, detestable, anti US Constitution, anti-military, pathological lying, integrity stricken, morally corrupt, divisive, destructive sociopaths to have ever soiled OUR Oval Office and government. I approve of my message even though pointing this out will label me racist.

  • Hass

    And just to rub it in, that picture shows this evil POS being released from prison as if she’s a national hero.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      She IS a national hero – in H E L L.

      I hope she makes a one way hajj to H E L L ASAP.

    No doubt Leftists regard this obscene gesture as furthering the legacy of Mandela’s perverse misconception of “reconciliation” which served to legitimate today’s modern age of terrorism.

    Mandela’s signature mendacity was perhaps best captured in 2002 (following the 9-11 attacks) when he lobbied tirelessly for “compassionate” release of the Lockerbie bomber who slaughtered 270 innocents (189 Americans).

    “Megrahi is all alone,” Mandela told a packed press conference in the prison’s visitors’ room. “He has nobody he can talk to. It is a psychological persecution that a man must stay for the length of his long sentence all alone.”

    Megrahi ultimately served a mere 8 years of his life sentence.

    Republican leaders – now is the time to speak up. Ask the question publicly why Obama considers Stewart worthy of release, and why she should not merely die in prison as should be the norm for old and sick inmates who have not served their sentences.

    I remember she was scheduled to be released after serving the original sentence a few years ago, but she mouthed-off to the judge and was given (five?) more years…I believe she only had a couple of years left on the extension. Correct me if I am wrong.
    No matter what, she is a horrible human being that deserves no mercy of any kind.
