The Prince of Jihad is Dead. Will the Blind Sheikh’s passing create the first real national security crisis for Donald Trump?

His New York cell planted a bomb on the B-2 level of The World Trade Center in 1993, killing six and injuring a thousand. He was convicted in 1995 as the centerpiece of the “Day of Terror” plot to blow up the bridges & tunnels into Manhattan, the U.N. and the FBI’s New York Office.

His imprisonment directly inspired the October 2000 bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen, which left seven U.S. sailors dead.

He was cited in the infamous Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) to President George W. Bush in 2001 just, weeks before the 9/11 attacks, headlined “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” and as recently as 2013, the terrorists who held a group of hostages at an Algerian gas plant, demanded his release.

    If his plot to bomb the UN was successful I would have considered pardoning him.

      That is the only good idea he ever had.

    Trumpster should pre-emptively nuke some muzzie shithole to send a serious message.

    Don’t say anything about the Algerian gas plant job. Canadians were involved. If Trump gets wind of it we’re screwed.

      Gee, Algerian gas plant job sounds like a heist movie starring the Rat Pack.

    I imagine he is burning quite well down below.

    Let’s hope Jon Stewart kneels at the eternal flame of his grave-site on the grounds of the New York Times.
