I sure hope my comment doesn't lead to this forum being shut down, but if he wanted to go to Somalia so bad why don't we just grant him his wish? We can drop him off on one of those Somali Pirate Vessels in the Gulf of Aden, or whatever they call it. Problem Solved!

Freedom Lover, maybe you should learn to actually read the story before making a retard statement like that.

Judge: "I am not sending a message to anyone"

Yes, you are. You're sending the message that you're soft on terrorism.

just going on a trip across the country with some guys I don't know, oh know i know their nicknames. But nothing else. Why? uhhhh.... what?

Don't know who paid for the car, oh yeah, my card paid for the car? uhhhh.... what was the question?

Just going to build a mosque next to ground zero. But we are not rubbing your face in it at all. We are all here trying to heal.

We lost a lot too on 9-11.

Never has there been an immigration of people that understand and exploit the generosity of the American will.

"I've learned a lot from this experience," he said. "You'll never see me in this situation again."

As well we shouldnt. If this man is NOT a citizen at this time than he should should be deported immediately upon committing a crime. ANY crime much less one so closely related to terrorism of any sort. Yes, we should NOT see this man in court again. But....... Im betting he is going no where.

Four months in jail?!? Lynne Stewart, the lawyer who passed messages for the terrorist 'Blind Sheik' got 10 years in federal prison. And she is a US Citizen. We need to deport any foreign national immediately who is convicted of abetting any sort of terrorism, no matter where it is to take place. Their whine that they are here in the US because their country isn't safe is a sham. It's this sort of trash that makes it so. Why would we want them here?

To do the jobs that Americans won't do, like driving Alcohol free cabs. And who will do the stoning of women, when Hussein declares Sharia law.
