Why not now? ‘Too soon after the attack on the Embassy in Libya …..’
What are they referring to? The “Release of the Blind Sheikh”, the bomber of the 1993 World Trade Center, 8 years before the 9/11 attack.
Rep. Bachmann and Clinton have been in a flap over the release – after the recent “mistake” of not protecting her employees (Ambassador Stevens, and the 3 others killed in Libya), Secretary of State Clinton is denying there are plans to release him, but the whispers continue to give credence to the whispers.
The Libyan Terror attack, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, was by one of the Blind Sheikh’s terrorist group, Jamaa Islamiya, is thought to be partially the reason for the administration’s continuing to deny that the fatal attack was actually another TERRORIST incident.
It was The Blaze that exposed the alleged plan to release the Terrorist ….. excerpts of their news release, below:
In a dramatic confrontation with a conservative lawmaker on Capitol Hill yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton flatly denied that the Obama administration is planning to send the 1993 World Trade Center bomber back to Egypt.
Frustrated after the Department of State refused for days to confirm or deny reports about a possible transfer of the Blind Sheikh to Egyptian custody, Bachmann wanted to get Clinton on the record on the issue in front of House members. In an environment described by the source as “tense,” the lawmaker asked Clinton if anyone in any department or agency in the federal government was negotiating, corresponding, or in any way moving forward with plans to expel the terrorist from the United States.
“No,” was Clinton’s terse reply.
Senators complained that Clinton stonewalled their requests for new information about the attack last week on the U.S. consulate in Libya that claimed the lives of four Americans including the U.S. ambassador.
“That was the most useless, worthless briefing that I have attended in a long time,” said Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.). “Believe me, there is more written in every major and minor publication in America about what happened.”
Andrew McCarthy, who led the prosecution team that put Abdel-Rahman behind bars, is worried about the Obama administration’s intentions. “There’s no way to believe anything they say,” he said. “I believe there may already be a nod-and-wink agreement in place.”
