Just Effing Wonderful: Jordanian Courts Find Abu Qatada Not Guilty Releases Him

Some days you just can't win:

Radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada has been released from prison after being found not guilty of terrorism offences by a court in Amman, Jordan.

Judges said there was "insufficient evidence" to convict him of planning a thwarted terrorist plot against tourists and diplomats during Jordan's Millennium celebrations.

He was deported from the UK in 2013.

His supporters erupted in applause when the verdict was read out in court.

Britain's Home Office said he was "not coming back to the UK" as its courts agreed he was a threat to security.

Oh well at least he's not living off the UK taxpayers any longer.

Are you sure about that? UK provided a private jet (commissioned by the home office) to fly him to Jordan for this trial. http://tinyurl.com/k26tzzj

His family remains in the UK and continue to collect the dole http://tinyurl.com/pqd7fzz
