Why Did Obama’s FBI Just Release a Chicago Bomb Plotter and Narco-Terrorist?

Several years ago the FBI had arrested Emad Karakrah and charged him with a series of crimes. Karakrah was involved in several plots and crimes including narco-terrorism and a 2009 plot to bomb Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago TV studios. But for some inexplicable reason, the FBI just released this dangerous man out of prison.

This guy has a long history of terrorist activities. Karakrah was involved in a far-reaching narco-terrorism plot according to extensive reporting by Judicial Watch and when he had a ISIS flag waving from his car–the same car he threatened to use as a bob carrier.

But now, for some inexplicable reason the FBI announced that on January 7, Karakrah reached a plea deal and was released from jail.

“Karakrah,” Judicial Watch reported this week, “was reportedly recruited as an FBI confidential informant (CI) in 2009 after his plot to bomb Winfrey’s Harpo Studios and the Sears Tower (renamed Willis Tower) with a truck bomb was foiled. It wasn’t long before he broke contact with his FBI handlers, according to Judicial Watch’s sources, and for years he successfully evaded them.”

Yet, now they’ve allowed him to go free again despite the fact that he’s been able to evade them for years?

Worse, Judicial Watch also discovered that Karakrah “spent time this past summer as a truck driver for militant Islamists, delivering supplies and materiel to terror cells operating in Brooklyn, New York and Saddle Brook, New Jersey.”

This is the guy the FBI has allowed to get in the wind?

    Just wait and see how many terrorists he pardons just before he leaves office. This is the kind of idiot that would empty the jails.


    Because Obama hates America?

    Just spitballin’ here.

    • That makes him exactly like every other Democrat.

        There are plenty of dems that love America. Most of them are dead, however.

        • The Democrats who loved America were all dead by about 1980.

            Bill Clinton did more for America than one million Warner-type flapmouths.

            Those were the good times. Peace, prosperity and a balanced budget.

    Once again Warner uses a picture of a anti-Assad militia the US is supporting, the Palace Brigades, to illustrate his story.

    • It’s a stock photo in the Wizbang data base. Besides, if Obama supports them, I do not. Should we support any Muzzie? What do you think?

      • Commander_Chico

        Don’t make excuses and blame Kevin about the Wizbang database. You could have used the guy’s picture.

        The photo should have something to do with the story. What is the connection between a CIA-supported militia fighting Assad in Aleppo and this guy?

    Just consider him the Muslim version of Whitey Bolger.

    • Commander_Chico

      probably true.
