A little justice is better than absolutely none.
It’s been a while, but you may remember Lynne Stewart. She’s the “lawyer version” of John Kerry – read traitor who should be hung from the nearest tree.
By way of some history, Ms. Stewart is a very liberal lawyer who has a lifetime of history defending every possible anti-American cause you can imagine. And some you can’t. For the purpose of this particular story, she was the attorney of record for the “Blind Shiek” – the guy who planned and was convicted of the first World Trade Center bombing. FoxNews reported on today’s developments…
Rahman [the BS] was sentenced for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and given extra “special administrative measures” to limit his contact with the outside world. Stewart, who defended Rahman, and two others involved in his case were charged with violating the SAMs by smuggling messages to his followers in Egypt, which resulted in the Islamic Group rescinding its support for a cease fire of terror attacks.
Stewart, in her typical role as a latter day John Kerry, couldn’t wait to help Rahman and his cohorts do everything they can in their attempts to destroy America. And she got caught.
Stewart was found guilty in February 2005 of conveying messages for Rahman from his prison cell to his terrorist network, the Islamic Group. The seven counts included material support to a conspiracy to kill and kidnap individuals in a foreign country, conspiracy to defraud the United States and making false statements.
Got that? Found guilty of working with Rahman’s terrorist network against the US. Today is the 16th of July 2010. 2010. Five years plus since she was found guilty and she finally is going to prison. If that’s not enough to completely outrage you, chew on this for a while. Her original sentence was [drum roll please] 28 months. And how did she react?
…Stewart’s scoffing at her original sentencing by saying in 2006 she could do the time “standing on her head.” The statement won her a standing ovation at the time.
Even the NYT couldn’t find anything good to say about Stewart. Their article concluded this way…
Before Judge Koeltl ruled, Ms. Stewart tried to backtrack from those statements. She said that prison was worse than she could ever have imagined. “Over the last eight months, prison has diminished me,” she said. “Daily, I confront the prospect of death.”
If there was real justice, those offering the standing ovation would have been arrested to subordination of treason. Anyway, today she was finally sent off to NeverLand, and thanks to the appeals court who sent the case back and demanded a bigger sentence, she’ll be going away for ten years and even at that it’s a gift, she could have gotten thirty. And should have. The only bright spot is that she is 70 and reportedly in “poor health” so hopefully she’ll die in an isolation cell someplace after serving most of her sentence. Dying alone. Abandoned. After having been “worn down” every day by bad food and complete isolation. It’ll be good practice for Hell.
