Blind Sheikh is Dead - Why was here ever allowed into the US?

He said: “America will go and be withered and this civilization will be destroyed”
Let us hope his cot was moved everyday and his toilet placement forced him to pee toward Mecca. m/r

World Trade Center bomber ‘Blind Sheikh’ dies in prison

Omar Abdel-Rahman, the fiery blind cleric who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, died Saturday in a North Carolina federal prison hospital where he was serving a life sentence for plotting terror.
The 78-year-old Islamist militant’s death was announced by his son and daughter in his native Egypt, and confirmed by spokesman Greg Norton at the Butner federal prison complex.
The sheik, who suffered from coronary heart disease and diabetes, died of natural causes, said Norton.
Known as “the Blind Sheik,” Abdel-Rahman was born to a merchant in a village in the Nile delta.
Diabetes had rendered him blind from infancy.
He was convicted in 1996 of planning “a war of urban terrorism,” targeting city landmarks including the Holland and Lincoln tunnels, the United Nations, the George Washington Bridge and FBI headquarters in Manhattan.
