Egyptian Terror Leader Gives ‘Friendly’ Advice to Obama

Nageh Ibrahim, the leader of an Egyptian Islamist terrorist group, had some interesting words of counsel for his “friend” President Obama, at the end of Eli Lake’s great Washington Times article on Egyptian prisoner escapees today:

Mr. Ibrahim said, however, that he had no ill will toward the United States or President Obama. He said that he was urging Mr. Obama to release Abdel Rahman from prison so he can return to Egypt. “I am giving advice to our friend Obama, release the blind sheik for your own benefit. No, this is not a threat, it’s advice from one friend to another friend. This will save America’s reputation from the cynicism of George W. Bush,” he said.

It’s been three years since Bush left office, and terrorists still can’t stop using left-wing talking points against him.
