EXCLUSIVE: Abdulmutallab Lawyer, Prosecutors, Obama US Atty Mocked 9/11, Joked re Flying Planes Into Bldgs
Tomorrow at the Federal Courthouse in Detroit, it’s expected to be a madhouse, as mobs of people, protestors, and press will be there for the first hearing in the federal case against Northwest Flight 253 Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
But what should be getting a lot of attention is how a tax-paid federal public defender on the Abdulmutallab team and the two federal prosecutors and Obama U.S. Attorney prosecuting him all mocked the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and posted jokes about flying planes into buildings at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Michigan. Below is a “joke” sent to Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric M. Straus, the lead federal prosecutor of Abdulmutallab by Richard M. Helfrick a/k/a Rick Helfrick, a federal public defender on the Abdulmutallab defense team. He is the Managing Attorney of the Federal Defender Office in Detroit, and his salary–around $150,000 a year–is paid by you. (As I noted previously, both Mr. Helfrick and Abdulmutallab’s lead attorney, Miriam Siefer, stole a federal judge’s stationery, forged his signature and impersonated him in the Detroit terror cell trial.)
Mr. Straus thought this “flying lessons gag” about then-convicted Islamic terrorist Karim Koubriti was so “funny” that he posted it in the break and luncheon room of the U.S. Attorney’s office for months.
Both Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Tukel (more about him here) and Barack Obama’s newly appointed Islamo-pandering U.S. Attorney, Barbara McQuade a/k/a “Barb,” saw this “joke” and did nothing. Sources said they laughed along with it. Tukel–who previously outed a loyal Islamic government informant in terrorism and drug cases to the media–is also prosecuting the Abdulmutallab case, and McQuade is overseeing it.
Rick Helfrick & Eric Straus: Tax-Funded Federal Public Defender & Prosecutor of Abdulmutallab Think Islamic Terrorism is Funny
As I noted above, the “Mr. Koubriti,” referred to in the letter from Helfrick, is Karim Koubriti, an Islamic terrorist who plotted to blow up the U.S. Air Force Base in Incirlik Turkey, as well as Disneyland and hotels in Las Vegas. (More details about him here.) Though two federal juries said he was an Islamic terrorist, Mr. Koubriti now lives free in the Detroit area, where he is on the fast-track to become a U.S. citizen, and has a Commercial Drivers License (he drives a truck–just what you want Islamic terrorists in the U.S. doing as a profession). Mr. Straus worked with Mr. Helfrick and Mr. Abdulmutallab’s lead attorney, Miriam Siefer, to overturn Koubriti’s conviction and let him walk free. And, as I previously noted, Straus is known for posting a dartboard in his office, with the face of the FBI Detroit’s chief counterterrorism intelligence agent, Paul George, as the “bull’s eye.”
If there are any “mistakes” in the prosecution of Abdulmutallab, don’t be surprised. These two cretins–Straus and Tukel–don’t make “mistakes.” They deliberately work to set free the terrorists their office is “prosecuting.”
