So, terrorist Sami Al-Arian, fresh from hearing his light sentence (he will only have to do 1.5 years more in prison), has decided to challenge his sentence.
And guess whom he’s chosen for his attorney? None other than Peter Erlinder, a law professor who was a defense attorney for those responsible for the 1994 Rwanda Genocide. And he co-founded, with Al-Arian, the Erlinder, who co-founded the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom in 1997. That group also defended “former” terrorist and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) Special Agent-in-Charge Brian Moskowitz buddy, Imad Hamad.
Well, at least Erlinder is consistent in picking mass murderers for clients and allies. Despicable.
Thanks to our friend, Bill Warner, Private Investigator extraordinaire, for the tip.
BTW, that Al-Arian can even challenge the sentence is yet another example of the Justice Department’s failed–and incompetent–war on terror. They made a plea agreement, which should have included no challenge to the sentence, not just the count to which Al-Arian pleaded guilty. Where do we go to sue our Justice Dept. attorneys for malpractice?
