In case the new $750,000 soccer field at Club Gitmo doesn’t do enough to encourage terrorists, our rulers are now reportedly offering to trade terrorists for kidnapped Americans, providing Islamists with both a get out of jail free card and a good reason to abduct Americans at every possible opportunity:
Al-Arabiya is reporting, in Arabic only so far, that the U.S. is talking with the Egyptian government to free the blind Sheikh and 49 other Egyptians currently imprisoned in the U.S. in exchange for the freedom of the 19 Americans the Egyptians are holding.
The blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman, is in prison for his role in masterminding the 1993 World Trade Center jihad terror bombing. If he is freed, it will be the apotheosis of Obama’s policy of appeasement toward the Islamic world.
Egypt was run by a US ally, until the Obama Regime helped dislodge Mubarak from power à la Jimmy Carter and the Shah of Iran.
By releasing Omar Abdel Rahman in exchange for hostages, the Obama Regime would officially cross the line between willful stupidity and treason.
