Imagine this a little differently

Extremist Taunts His Victims From Prison

Victims of Eric Rudolph Osama Bin Laden, the anti-abortion America extremist who pulled off a series of bombings across the South world, say he is taunting them from deep within the nation's most secure federal prison, and authorities say there is little they can do to stop him.

(snip)

But Rudolph's Osama's long essays have been posted on the Internet by a supporter who maintains a Army of God Web Taliban site. The Army of God Taliban is the same loose-knit group that Rudolph bin Laden claimed to represent in letters sent after the blasts.

In one piece, Rudolph bin Laden seeks to justify violence against abortion clinics Americans by arguing that Jesus Allah would condone "militant action in defense of the innocent."


Any of the prisoners in Gitmo get to send mail to their fans?

Terrorism is Terrorism, no matter which God you offer it up to.

Yes, but white homegrown terrorists are so much more PC than brown foreign terrorists. See?

Ah, but there's a difference. Homegrown terrorists get a trial by a jury of their peers. Foreign terrorists (and in this group I include alleged terrorists, political rabblerousers, and just people that got turned in for the reward money) never get one of those. They just stay in legal limbo ad infinitum.

And as I remember, didn't alot of citizens in the area aid and abet Rudolph in hiding?

Wonder if they all got hauled off to Gitmo for colusion? Ha.

But he's a white man, so it's OK! (At least it is with the GOP/Media Complex that tries to tell us what to think.)

How often does a prosecutor not seek the death penalty when prosecuting a cop-killer?

Very good point anon. I don't know, but I would bet it isn't very often.

I'll never understand ANYONE defending this piece of human trash. EVEN IF you accept that it is morally defensible to bomb abortion clinics; EVEN IF you accept that it is morally defensible to kill abortion providers - how could you defend Rudolph's actions? He set secondary explosives for the clear purpose of killing or injuring first responders - police, EMS, firemen - to the bombing of clinics. He attempted to bomb Atlanta during the Olympics, in the hope of maiming homosexuals, with no consideration for anyone else who might be injured. No matter how hate filled and prejudiced his politics, it seems to me that only a completely psychotic,anarchist nutjob could possibly see Rudolph as heroic.

Just ask Jose Padilla. But he's brown and Muslim, not white and Christian.

Why do the AP even use the word "extremist" in the headline? Shouldn't it be "murderer"?

GeeBee

Of course Eric Rudolph isn't a terrorist. Neither are Timothy McVeigh, Clayton Waagner, John Salvi, James Kopp, and Michael Griffin. They're all fine, upstanding, conservative, Christian, white men. Only Muslims, dark-skinned people and liberals are considered to be terrorists in Bush's America. Get with the program, people!

I agree with your basic point, but you should have read through the whole article:

"A Justice Department report last fall criticized the prison for not properly screening inmate mail. It determined that three men convicted in the World Trade Center bombing were able to send dozens of letters overseas to suspected terrorists."
