    The embassy attacks were successful! All hail Islam and get used to that headgear! Obama rules!

    "
    The U.S. State Department is actively considering negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as “the Blind Sheikh,” for humanitarian and health reasons, a source close to the the Obama administration told TheBlaze.
    The Department of Justice, however, told TheBlaze that Rahman is serving a life sentence and is not considered for possible “release.” Previous calls to the State Department were referred to the Department of Justice and so far, the State Department has neither confirmed nor denied the report."


    All hail Obama! Allah is great!

    I would watch out about putting too much faith into unnamed sources.

    There have been a lot of rumors going around in the last few days, a lot of which have been confirmed false.

    Was this the same guy who Eric Holder said we need to bring to Justice in an American Court and NOT Guantanamo?

    No. The "Blind Sheik" was tried in an "American Court" back in 1995, and sentenced to Life.

    He was arrested around the corner from my grandparent's house in Brooklyn. I remember when it happened.

    Do you remember the month and year of his sentencing? I do, and what happened a couple of weeks before
