Shoe Bomber Re-United with Pen Pals

Ralph Alter
The Boston Globe reports on the latest round of terrorist appeasement from that man-made disaster called the Obama Administration in a story revealing the removal of many of the restrictions imposed upon the nefarious shoe-bomber, Richard C. Reid.  Confined to life in prison in the Supermax prison in Florence,Colorado along with Ramzi Yousef and Zacarias Moussaoui, the bumbling Al-Qaedan cannon fodder had formerly been restricted "from associating or praying with fellow jailed Muslim terrorists, and (had) his access (limited) to the news media and pen pals."(ibid)

Counter-terrorism experts consulted by the Globe suggested that Reid is considered a "dim bulb" and not likely to be much of an influence on inducing any other acts of terrorism.  Still, restoring his crayons and construction paper remains an affront to the passengers of the American Airlines flight Reid attempted to destroy as well as to every passenger of every American plane flight required to de-shoe prior to boarding their flights.  I suppose we should be thankful that the Muslim moron wasn't trying to set fire to his pants.

The easing of restrictions appears to have Eric Holder's fingerprints all over it:

"Debra Burlingame, whose brother Charles F. Burlingame III was the pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, is reeling from the Reid decision. She wants to know what's behind the administration's about-face.

"Why is (Attorney General Eric Holder's) office or their representatives trying to hide what they are doing?" said Burlingame, a member of the board of directors for the National Sept. 11 Memorial Foundation. "If they have a legitimate reason to let a hard-core terrorist communicate with the media and everyone he chooses to communicate with, then I'd like to know what that reason is."

After all, the only thing that has changed during Reid's continuous legal appeals to have restrictions removed has been the Presidential administration.  Prior to Holder's assumption of office, the Justice Department has been steadfast in denying Reid's appeals.  Of course, Holder's office issued a denial regarding the Attorney General's possible role in the appparent appeasement.  One must admit this certainly smacks of the modus operandi of the facilitator of the Elian Gonzales fiasco and the dismissal of Black Panther voter intimidation charges.

Isn't it time we had some adult supervision in the Justice Department?
