The ACLU Urged to Free the Terrorist... Who Shortly Thereafter Pled Guilty!

Let the record show that it was only a few months ago that the ACLU urged the Federal Government to drop all efforts to retry Florida Professor Sami al-Arian on charges that he helped fund a notorious Islamic terrorist organization.
In a letter to federal authorities, the director of the Florida ACLU wrote: "In light of the jury's [partial] acquittal ... on the most serious charges and in light of reportedly spending millions of dollars in a trial that led to no convictions, a decision to retry (Dr. Al-Arian) would appear to be pointless and vindictive."
This week, al-Arian plead guilty as charged to one count of engaging in a conspiracy to provide services to a terrorist organization and agreed as part of a plea bargin to be deported from the United States. In other words, if it were up to the ACLU, this terrorist would now be walking free in the US and teaching an audience of captive, impressionable young university students. Thanks ACLU.
