UK Re-Arrests Osama bin Laden's Right Hand Man
Abu Qatada, who is on the U.S. Treasury's list of designated terrorists, has been re-arrested in Britain.Yeah, I know what you're thinking: re-arrested? WTF was he doing out in the first place? Blame the British equivalent of a left wing judge. He was on what we in the U.S. would call house arrest. That's right, Osama bin Laden's right hand man in the UK on house freaking arrest! Ealing Times:
Abu Qatada, who has been holed up in a large house in a leafy Acton street since he was released from prison in June, was arrested by immigration officers on claims he was planning to flee the country. Bail conditions placed on the 47-year-old, once described by a judge as Osama Bin-Laden's right-hand man in Europe, meant he had to spend at least 22-hours a day at the house, and was not allowed to meet with certain people.RELATED:
