10 Years Later: Rep. Nadler Duped By Weather Underground Terrorist Once Again

“By Senator Clinton’s own vetting standards, I don’t think she would make it, since President Clinton pardoned or commuted the sentences of two members of the Weather Underground.”
- Barrack Obama, responding to Hillary Clinton's criticism of his relationship with Bill Ayers, April 17, 2008 ABC News debate


Linda Evans, who (along with Obama/Holder released terrorist Marilyn Buck) bombed in the Capital building, and Susan Rosenberg, who (along with Obama/Holder released terrorist Marilyn Buck) coordinated the getaway for the Weathermen/Black Liberation Army 1981 Nyack Brinks robbery, in which they killed two police (in this attack, the only black officer on that police force was murdered by this so-called "Black Liberation Army") and a Brinks security guard, and in 1979 Rosenberg (along with Obama/Holder released terrorist Marilyn Buck) broke cop-killing terrorist Joanne Chesimard AKA Assada Shakur out of prison and helped her flee to Cuba.

These two terrorists' sentences were commuted by Bill Clinton at the request of Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-New York), who petitioned for them on behalf of his Rabbi, who was approached by Rosenberg's family with a request for assistance. (It should be noted that the Weather Underground was very anti-Semitic.)

Now, with the tenth anniversary of Evans and Rosenberg's release, Nadler was asked about Susan Rosenberg's just published "memoir". Within the bizarre back-and-forth was this exchange:
AB: And she was held in an unusual prison at one point.

JN: It comes out in her book. I was just reading this last night. I didn't really know this too much. She and others were held under terrible solitary confinement in very severe conditions; there were three women held, in a three-woman jail, essentially, in Lexington, Kentucky. They built the jail specially for political prisoners. Hauling dynamite over state lines is not a political crime - it's a real crime, but they did it for political reasons. In any event, these so-called political people were kept in this prison, which was painted all white, sensory deprivation, separated from everybody else, in conditions designed to produce mental deterioration

Well, judging from an excellent review of the book in Commentary, Nadler isn't done with the book. Get a load of this:
And then there was the Dapper Don, John Gotti, whom Rosenberg says she met in an early post-arrest stint in the Manhattan Correctional Center. It was something akin to love at first sight. “We had in common a strong code of principle,” she writes. “We would not snitch, not in our cases, in our lives, or inside the jail itself. In that respect, our honor united us. John Gotti had never witnessed such loyalty before in a group outside the mob.” He liked what he saw so much that he paid for Rosenberg’s surprise 30th birthday party. “It was one of the best birthdays I ever had,” she proudly relates.

Whether the party actually took place as described is beyond a book reviewer’s capacity to tell, but amid the bottles of scotch and wine and plates of eggplant, veal, and chicken, a couple of important facts can be discerned. The first is that Rosenberg is tickled pink to get—or imagine she got—the respect of a psychopathic killer from the big leagues of organized crime. It fits perfectly with the sense of grandiosity, self-centered entitlement, and cosmic significance—whatever the earthbound rules might ordain—that drips through the pages of An American Radical.

The second is that this is sure some kind of prison hell, where a high-security terrorist in the early stages of incarceration can get takeout scotch and eggplant parmigiana ordered in by the Mafia. And the barbed-wire room service did not stop there. No sooner does Rosenberg get thrown into her next American gulag stop in Tucson than she is able between alleged anal rapes to order up a phone book and get in touch with sympathetic outside support groups, convivial law professors who stop by to offer legal and moral support, and her own attorneys.

When transferred to a serious high-security unit (HSU) in Lexington, Kentucky—which the ACLU later successfully sued to have shut down—Rosenberg finds that things have become really grim. “Every day was filled with confrontations . . . over every human need: getting hot water for a cup of instant coffee, taking a shower, going outside, getting medical attention, getting a book.” Yes, “the HSU brought new heights of control, harassment, denial of basic human rights, attacks on our gender, and terrible cruelty.” Then, in her next hellhole, in Marianna, Florida, Rosenberg had access to cable TV, could wear her own clothes, and had unlimited access to books. She became an AIDS-awareness activist.

In fact, incarceration was Rosenberg’s equivalent of the G.I. Bill. She picked up a master’s degree from far-left Antioch College, now defunct due to lack of enrollee interest. She taught Marx-influenced black history to black prisoners. She began writing screenplays and execrable poetry. Eventually, her friends orchestrated a sympathetic 60 Minutes segment with a producer who was a former member of the left-wing Students for a Democratic Society.

As the reviewer writes, the implausibility of the majority of this tale "ought to convince most common-sense readers that a freshly arrested facilitator of terrorist bombing attacks who was also a gun-toting fugitive-at-large on cop-killing and robbery charges, and who refused to cooperate in any way with law-enforcement authorities, might also be a spectacularly crude and blatant liar."



It's worth mentioning that among the witnesses at Representative Peter King's Hearing on "The Threat of Muslim-American Radicalization in U.S. Prisons" before the House Committee on Homeland Security was Mr. Patrick T. Dunleavy Deputy Inspector General (Ret.) Criminal Intelligence Unit New York State Department of Correctional Services. Within the text of his opening statement, he said the following:
In 1999, two years prior to 9/11, several law enforcement agencies received information regarding radical Islamist activity in the prison system. The first of these incidents occurred in February 1999.
At that time, both the FBI and the Inspector General’s Office for the New York State Department of Correctional Services received information specifically detailing recruitment efforts within prison.
The information, from confidential informants, named individuals associated with the 1993 plot to destroy New York City landmarks and the first attack on the World Trade Center, along with several members of a domestic terrorist organization already serving time for the Brinks robbery. The intelligence also implicated a Pakistani national and a Yemeni who were in prison for murder. The informant went on to say that this group had formed an alliance with a singular goal. He called the group the “Talem Circle” and stated that; “The Talem Circle was tasked with training incarcerated members to work with Middle Eastern Muslims to perform acts of Jihad.”
