She's Right

Lynne Stewart, that is. The leftist lawyer who helped terrorist Omar Abdel-Rahman communicate with fellow terrorists while she represented him during his trial in 1995, despite very specific instructions from the court that Rahman was to be isolated from outside contacts.

Poor Lynne the terrorist abetter thinks her case has echoes of the Sacco-Vanzetti and Rosenberg trials.

Yeah, like the defendants in those cases, she deserves a lot more than the 30 years she may well get. She ought to have been charged with treason, which carries the death penalty.

HT and more details at Sentencing Law and Policy.

UPDATE: A measly 28 months. Much better than what Sacco-Vanzetti and the Rosenbergs got. The judiciary again shows itself clueless about what is at stake in this war. Sorry, Lynne, but that sentence is not one to make you a cause celebre with the lunatic fringe.
