Egypt’s new President announced he will try to have Omar Abdel Rahman (the blind terrorist plotter) who is serving a sentence in a North Carolina Prison freed and returned home to Egypt. How nice.
Kind of makes one miss Mubarak. As bucket lists go I can’t see any sane and rational person wanting to help Omar Abdel Rahman gain his freedom anytime soon. But of course there is no accounting for taste. Those who have unmitigated joy at the results of Arab Spring in Egypt might want to take another look at the results, unless of course they think that by being blind themselves they are further supporting Rahman.
If the new president of Egypt is signaling anything, it is that his priorities and sense of duty to the community of nations needs some work.
