Outrage: Team Obama Secures Early Release of Terrorist Who Still Backs Killing Americans

I understand the concept of early release for cooperation in other terrorist cases, but how can you release a terrorist who still publicly backs the killing of Americans? Mohammed Babar only served 4 years and 8 months of what should have been 30 to 70 years in prison. Babar helped set up the terrorist training camp where Mohammad Sidique Khan, the leader of the 2005 London suicide bombers, learned to make explosives. After being caught, he testified against the London bombers.
(ABC News)The U.S. government formally requested the early release of a convicted terrorist from federal prison, even though the terrorist admitted that he continued to support the killing of U.S. soldiers serving in Muslim countries.

Mohammed Babar, born and raised in New York City, was arrested in 2004 and pled guilty to four counts of providing material support to al Qaeda and one count of providing funds to Al Qaeda. After Babar had served four years and eight months, he was released on bail in late 2008.

In late 2010, the government filed a sealed request for leniency for Babar because of his “extraordinary cooperation” in terror investigations, asking for an “appropriate reduction” in his sentence even though federal sentencing guidelines indicate a sentence of 30 to 70 years in prison. The letter, now unsealed, notes that he was critical in securing conviction in four cases in three countries.
After the request, a judge sentenced Babar to 10 years of supervised release and a court fee of $500.
