In 2006, federal judge Garland E. Burrell sentenced Hamid Hayat of Lodi, California, to 24 years in prison for, as the U.S. Department of Justice explained, a series of terrorism charges related to his 2003/2004 attendance at a jihadi training camp in Pakistan and his 2005 return to the United States with the intent to wage violent jihad.
As prosecutors charged, the man with a jihadi heart and a jihadi mind intended to target hospitals, banks and grocery stores. Hayat boasted about giving money to Sipah-e-Sahaba, a group that Pakistan declared a terrorist organization. The case was one the first major prosecutions of terrorism in the wake of 9/11.
Nearly 14 years later, judge Burrell, an appointee of George H.W. Bush, has vacated the sentence and conviction of Hamid Hayat, now 36. This action was based not on new exculpatory evidence but what amounted to a post-facto performance review of Hayats trial attorney by magistrate judge Deborah Barnes.

If this absurd ruling stands, other terrorists will also be free to do whatever they want.
The judge doesn’t give a damn. I’m sure he lives in his gated community.
Hayat will be someone else’s problem eventually.
They not only reaffirmed the judgement from more than 10 years ago they did it TWICE and then some appellate judge interviews some non-citizens in another country without cross examination and that hearsay is enough to overturn the conviction?!
Its a miscarriage of justice.
They do it because the RINOs let them get away with it.
I believe these judges are scared out of their minds and that’s why they are/will go easy on these people.
Turning potential jihadi terrorist loose, while trying to disarm law abiding citizens. What could go wrong with that?
example number 1,275 in the gradual Islamic take over of the US
Won’t be long before he can start blowing up things and cutting off heads, and perhaps shooting up a few places.
Such judges are either dems/commies and luv them some mohammedans, and/or they’re getting paid in the back pocket.
Hmm, can feds fight this, I wonder.
