Will Prof. Sami Al-Arian be released?

That's the speculation being raised recently since his lawyer rested without presenting any more arguments in the trial that's been conducted against this terror-supporting professor who worked in South Florida, who also happens to have been a guest in Dubya's White House in 2001 (and had his picture taken with both George and Laura during the 2000 presidential campaign). As Debbie Schlussel, one of the first to write about his terror-connected activities, revealed last Friday:
Yesterday, Al-Arian's defense lawyer rested without presenting a case in the ongoing trial against him. Speculation is that he didn't have to. After months and months of testimony, media reports say jurors eyes are glazing over daily. Clearly, prosecutors bored them and didn't stick to the meat of the case against Al-Arian. It will be a travesty of justice if Al-Arian walks. He is responsible for the murder of many civilians, including the bus-bombing murder of American college student Alisa Flatow.

But while it will be a travesty, if Al-Arian walks, it will be no surprise. The Justice Department has a terrible record post-9/11 of prosecuting terrorists, losing most major cases. It's as if they really want to lose and are just putting on a show for the post-9/11 audience who pays their salary, but whom they secretly disdain. The one terrific victory, in which prosecutor Richard Convertino obtained a guilty verdict against terrorists, Justice Department officials and a questionable judge did whatever they could to overturn the verdict and ruin Convertino.
There was a report a couple of months ago in The Washington Post that told that there were very few convictions in 9-11 investigations. If Al-Arian walks, it'll be another betrayal of the American public.

God I hope the guy rots in prison...or gets stuck by some convict's knife...

Great post. Thank you for exposing the Justice Department, which shows more energy going after Libby and Rove than after true thugs like al-Arian. Bush is NOT a tough guy when it comes to the "War on Terror"(sic) -- he is a softy. His lefty sidekick at DOJ, Al Gonzales does not impress me at all in the way he seems to be "blase" about the borders and about prosecuting domestic terrorists.
