Lynne Stewart: Another Shameful Act by the Justice Department

Gary Fouse

Radical New York attorney Lynne Stewart did much more more than represent the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman; she became his accomplice. The below puff piece by CNN does not do justice to her shameful actions. Stewart went way over the line of legal defense when she put herself at the service of a man who was behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing in 1993 that killed 6 people. Now, once again, Eric Holder and his gang at DOJ have sprung someone from prison who should have served her full sentence.

For a more sober assessment of what Stewart has done, watch last night's interview of Debra Burlingame, widow of the murdered pilot of the plane flown into the Pentagon on 9-11. She was interviewed by Fox's Megyn Kelly.

Dying or not, this woman is undeserving of compassion. This is a woman who knowingly facilitated communication between her "hero of the mujihadeen" and his terrorist accomplices in the Middle East. This is a woman who is unremorseful for what she has done.

Given this outrage, we can only thank God that the Egyptian military stepped in to remove Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood from power in Egypt. Don't forget that Morsi was scheduled to visit the US this year, where he had vowed to lobby for the release of Abdel Rahman.  Is there much doubt now that his efforts would have been rewarded by this president and this attorney general?
