Many highly dialed in and intelligent analysts claim that the whole reason behind the choreographed riots of 9/11 2012 was to apply pressure on the US to release ‘The Blind Sheikh’. In fact, some argue that the US ambassador to Libya was killed in a botched attempt to kidnap him for trade for Abdul Rahman, (TBS). It seems that the Muslim Brotherhood is getting ready to make another push for his release.
If the Obama admin does accede to this request, any ambiguity as to it’s allegiance or ambitions should be settled in my opinion. It will at least, settle any residual doubts.
For anyone who would like a clear picture on who this man is, please watch one of two documentaries, The Path to 911, and the other one I am trying to source now. I hope to have the link later.

The release of an Egyptian blind sheikh, jailed in the United States for the 1993 World Trade Center attack, will be urged by Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi during his upcoming visit to the U.S., the leader said on Monday.
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.
Sheikh Rahman is the spiritual leader of Gama’a al-Islamiya, which was involved in the 1981 assassination of President Anwar Sadat but renounced violence in 1997. The group has entered mainstream politics since former President Hosni Mubarak was toppled.
In September, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland stressed there was no plan to release him following his trial and conviction.
Mursi told CNN in an interview aired Monday that he was hoping to travel to the United States before the end of March 2013, and he planned to raise the case of Sheikh Rahman with U.S. President Barack Obama.
