I’ve bumped this up yet again because a NY judge has ordered the ‘compassionate release’ of terror lawyer Lynne Stewart.
A federal judge has ordered the release of Lynne Stewart, a terminally ill former defense lawyer convicted of assisting terrorism…
Why do we show compassion for monsters like this? Is this another of Obama’s slaps in the face to the current Egyptian government, and a love note to the terrorists in the Muslim Brotherhood?
I’ve bumped this old post in light of the Obama administration’s shocking decision to try the 9/11 terrorists in a New York civilian court. Does anyone remember what happened the last time we tried this? Also, see David Horowitz’s editorial, “The Worst Decision by a US President in History”:
The decision to try the jihadists in a civilian court is also a decision which will divulge America’s security secrets to the enemy since civilian courts afford defendants the right of discovery. It is also a propaganda gift to Islamic murderers who will turn the courtroom into a media circus to promote their hatred against the Great Satan — a hatred shared by their apologists at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the pro-Castro Center for Constitutional Rights who have pioneered the campaign against Guantanamo and whose influence in the Obama Administration is pervasive. (BTW, The newly appointed lawyer for the president is the husband of Obama’s recently departed Maoist communications director Anita Dunn.)
Does anybody remember Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman? He was the blind Egyptian cleric who was associated with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He was plotting numerous additional bomb attacks, which were thankfully prevented by his 1993 arrest and 1995 conviction. So we left him to rot in jail, and that was that.
Not quite. The Sheik was represented by radical lawyer Lynne Stewart, who was always ready to defend the constitutional rights of the scum of the earth. As part of her services, Stewart carried secret communications from the isolated Sheik Abdel-Rahman to his followers between 1997 and 2002. These included instructions to initiate a campaign of terror in Egypt. Last year Stewart, along with two others, were convicted of conspiring to materially assist terrorists. Her sentencing is next month, and she is, of course, claiming hardship due to age and infirmity. And as you can imagine, she is receiving encouragement and support from the usual suspects.
Certain classes of evil people must simply vanish away into a pit, never to be heard from again. Yes, this gives a dangerous degree of power to the government. But when there is danger on every path, we must choose between trusting the American government and trusting the Lynne Stewarts of the world.
