'Blind Sheikh' Near Death; FBI Issues Terror Warning
FBI Issues Warning to Police as Terrorist's Health Fails
The FBI has sent a bulletin to state and local law enforcement warning of possible terrorist reprisals as the health of an incarcerated terror mastermind fails.
, the alleged architect of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, has called for revenge should he die in U.S. custody.
Last week, the blind sheik was given blood transfusions at a medical facility after spitting up blood in his prison cell.
If they know there are people here who will take reprisals for the death of this POS in US custody, they must have a pretty good idea of who and where they are. Why aren't they arresting and deporting them?

The imprisoned al Qaeda spiritual leader known as the "Blind Sheikh" suffered a "medical emergency" at the Springfield federal prison last week, and the FBI is warning his death could lead al Qaeda to launch terror attacks against the United States in reprisal.
According to an FBI bulletin, obtained by ABCNews.com, the 68-year-old Omar Abdel-Rahman began to spit up blood on Dec. 6, and was rushed from prison to the emergency room of St. John's Regional Hospital in Springfield, Mo.
"He accepted a needed transfusion to replace lost blood. While he was under examination, medical authorities also discovered a tumor on his liver," the FBI situational awareness bulletin noted.
Omar Abdel-Rahman, convicted in 1996 of conspiring to blow up New York City landmarks, has long suffered from diabetes and heart ailments and has spent much of his imprisonment at the Springfield Medical Center for federal prisoners.
The FBI bulletin reminded authorities that the sheikh had previously called for reprisal attacks in the case of his death in prison.
The bulletin cited what it said was his last will and testament distributed at an al Qaeda press conference in 1998.
"My Brothers...If they [the Americans] kill me, which they will certainly do hold my funeral and send my corpse to my family, but do not let my blood be shed in vain. Rather, extract the most violent revenge, and remember your brother who spoke the truth and died for the will of God...The Mujahid Sheikh Omar Abdel al Rahman. In the name of God the kind and merciful."
The FBI bulletin also notes, "During Ramadan of this past year, al-Qa'ida in Iraq (AQI) released a videotape encouraging all Muslims in Iraq to exert efforts in capturing Western personnel so that they may be exchanged for the release of the Blind Sheik, suggesting that the Blind Sheikh remains a significant source of inspiration for AQ and their sympathizers."
Something would have had to have been in the works for awhile to have anything major occur here. That said, US allies and interests around the world should be vigilant.
isn't this goat raper imprisoned here in MN ?
does this mean A.I. won't come to the T-Wolves?
Is this Mullah Omar, that Dead has had his eye out for?
Maybe they should have sent this warning around to all the US mosques as well. When I hear about stuff like this, I envision the entire US population as the cocked hammer of a gun with the safety on "off" and an extremely sensitive trigger.
Where's he kicking the bucket at?
Pork fat, not roast. Save the roast for the celebration gala!
Are they worried that Katie Couric will do something rash?
Oh Darn. I just feel soooo bad. Piss Be Upon Him. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
NOW works for me!
Eureka, it just dawned on me!!!!! It's these hard hearted evil ones going into hell at such a high rate that's behind global warming. And here I thought it was me, my jeep and the cows.
Ooops. Maybe someone already has.......
Nah, that's the former head of the taliban. He's only blind in one eye.
May swine pee on him for all eternity!
Well, if he is going to die anyway, and the Muzzies will have tantrums anyway, why not stomp him to death, starting with the feet?
What a waste of good pork. ;-) Pack him in chitterlings.
