Jailhouse rock

Here are a couple of dispatches from the jailhouse front. Prisons are probably the most critical domestic front in the War on Terror.

Were Gitmo "suicides" really suicide missions? An investigation into 3 apparent suicides at Guantanamo Bay may have uncovered a broader plot after intructions in Arabic on how to carry them out were found. Investigators want a judge to review the prisoner’s correspondence, including letters from attorneys to determine whether the deaths were part of a conspiracy. However, lawyers for the detainees have objected. (Fox))

Lynne Stewart receives 28 months for aiding terrorists.

Lynne Stewart, 67, was convicted in February 2005 of helping her imprisoned client, Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, to contact the Islamic Group -- listed by the U.S. government as a terrorist organization -- with messages prosecutors said could have ignited violence in Egypt. (Nothing follows)

More prisoners should be encouraged to practice their faith in this manner.

Lynne Stewart should have been dragged before a firing squad or immediately hung until dead! Outright treason by a professional that knew without a doubt what she was doing is the worst form and to show mercy to her is a fatal mistake that will haunt us in the future!

If widespread inmate communication is inevitable there ought to be a system of registering the missive signatures of terrorist suspects in a secure database to prevent correspondence transferred to and from terrorist coordinators by assigning the responsibility of any attack using those materials to the terrorist suspects' attorneys :)

Stewart abused her privileges as a lawyer and US citizen, and deserves far worse than she was sentenced.
