Maybe they needed to free up a cell for Geert Wilders. “Court Cuts Jail for Plot to Kill US Troops in Iraq,” from AP, October 13:
Rotterdam, Netherlands (AP) — Prosecutors say a Dutchman convicted and sentenced to 25 years in the United States for plotting to kill American troops in Iraq is to be released after a court in Rotterdam slashed the sentence to eight years.
With time he has already served in jail and under Dutch sentencing guidelines, al-Delaema is expected to be released Wednesday.
Wednesday’s decision to cut Wesam al-Delaema’s sentence had been widely expected after al-Delaema was sent back to the Netherlands, where sentences are far more lenient than in the U.S.
Al-Delaema, who was born in Iraq, returned to his home town of Fallujah in October 2003, after the U.S. invasion. He videotaped himself showing off roadside bombs and praying to Allah that the explosives would kill American troops.
Another misunderstander of Islam!
