Release of the Blind Sheikh
Last night at 5:31pm, Glenn Beck and The Blaze.com broke the story of the Obama and the State Department are “actively considering” the release of the terrorist, the Blind Sheikh. The Blind Sheikh is being held in an American prison for his 1993 attacks on the World Trade Center. The Blaze reported that;
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.
A former intelligence officer who now works for The Blaze spoke with a high level official who has access within the Obama administration and told The Blaze that releasing the Blind Sheikh to Egypt might be a “solution” to help calm the current Middle East Crisis. The State Department and the Obama administration see this as a three part solution. First, continued Muslim out reach in order to advance the view of America throughout that part of the world. Second, it might help calm the middle eastern riots that are currently taking place. Third, it will be a good faith humanitarian action that will assist in the Obama administrations out reach doctrine of appeasement. This “release” would also not take place UNTIL after the election.
The Blaze report;
A veteran intelligence analyst and researcher for TheBlaze said he met with an official within the Obama administration who told him the transfer of the Blind Sheikh to Egypt is something that is being “actively considered” by the administration as a solution to the ongoing crisis in the Middle East. His source asked not to be identified.
When asked if the transfer of the convicted terrorist was being seriously considered, the intelligence analyst said yes, according to his source, who stressed that the move, if executed, was not intended to take place or be announced until after the presidential election.
The official from within the Obama administration who wishes to remain secret at this time, told The Blaze that; “When radical Islamists in Egypt were calling for the burning down of the U.S. embassy this past weekend, before the riots took place this week, they said they were going to do this to push for the release of the Blind Sheikh,”
