Has Obama Already Pledged With a "Wink and a Nod" to Release The Blind Sheikh, Mastermind of the 1993 WTC Bombing, When He Has More "Flexibility" After The Election?

Why is no one pressing him on this?

Can Congress pass a law forbidding such a release? I think they could. If Obama fights it... well, that's on him, isn't it?

The Egyptian government “asked for his release,” an administration source told The Post — and Rep. Peter King (R-LI) confirmed the request is being considered.

The White House, State Department and Justice Department each issued statements denying any deal is in the works, but, “There’s no way to believe anything they say,” said Andrew McCarthy, the former assistant US attorney who prosecuted Abdel-Rahman. “I believe there may already be a nod-and-wink agreement in place.”

Their denials are also extremely cramped and introduce extraneous words into the question, like "We have no plan to release him."

I didn't ask about a plan. I asked if there were communications about it. I asked if you would specifically promise to the American people that no such release would ever, ever take place.

Abdel-Rahman, 74, was convicted in 1995 of plotting terror attacks throughout the city and is locked away in the medical wing of the Butner Federal Correctional Institution in North Carolina.

He remains revered in his native Egypt, and his supporters have demonstrated throughout Cairo for his freedom.
