There's never been such an opportune time to grant the blind sheik freedom to leave for the airport, IMHO. He's lost his sight hasn't he? We should make him go where he came from this way: Take the sheikh to a street corner with his carry-on satchel and send him over the intersection into the path of an oncoming van with a short-sighted truckdriver at the wheel. Hire a Muslim truckdriver, of course!

Muslim Brotherhood leader and Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi is scheduled to meet with President Obama sometime later this Spring. What's on his White House visit request list? Morsi wants Obama to free Omar Abdul Rahman, better known as the Blind Sheikh and the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center attack.

The announcement follows his pledge, during his presidential campaign earlier this year, to free Omar Abdul Rahman. The preacher is currently serving a life sentence and the planned request for his release appears to be gesture, by Mursi, to Gama’a al-Islamiya, a Salafi group.
