Obama administration may concede to terrorist demands, Muslim Brotherhood and release The Blind Sheikh
The Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, is serving a life sentence for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Since becoming the new Egyptian President, Mohammed Morsi has vowed to secure his return to Egypt, as a “nod to his base” of “hard-line Salafi Islamists,” as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
Even though he is serving a life sentence, The State Department may be conceding and negotiating with Egypt to release the Sheikh.
According to Erica Ritz from TheBlaze, “The U.S. State Department is currently in 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,” conflicting with the statement from the Department of Justice, that insists his release is not a consideration.
The US Embassy in Egypt was attacked, reportedly as a response to the insulting Muhammad video, but later was revealed to be an organized protest by Jamaa Islamiya to add pressure for the release of the Blind Sheikh.
The bomb in 1993 killed six Americans and injured more than a thousand. Omar Abdel-Rahman’s terror organization masterminded the assassination of former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, and he was reported to have a “close association” with Osama bin Laden.
