Always the victim.
In his 2012 guilty plea, Abdulmutallab wrote: “The jihadi is proud to kill in the name of God and that is exactly what God told us to do in the Koran.”
Now he is suing over supposedly not being able to practice Islam? By his own account, Islam is what led him to try to commit mass murder in the first place. Do prisons allow Nazi inmates to have Mein Kampf study groups? Shouldn’t prison officials be discouraging, not encouraging, his adherence to the belief system that landed him in prison?
“‘Underwear bomber’ files lawsuit over prison treatment, says Muslims harassed,” by Douglas Ernst, Washington Times, October 20, 2017 (thanks to David):
The infamous “underwear bomber” who nearly killed 289 people on an Amsterdam-to-Detroit flight on Christmas Day 2009 has filed a lawsuit over his treatment in prison.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was convicted in 2012 for an attempted terror attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253, which involved detonating explosives in his pants. The Nigerian, whose bomb fortunately malfunctioned, now says in a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Prisons and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that his rights in a Colorado Supermax facility are being trampled.
“The [Special Administrative Measures] imposed on Mr. Abdulmutallab prohibit him from having any communication whatsoever with more than 7.5 billion people, the vast majority of people on the planet,” his complaint reads, CBS News reported Friday.
Abdulmutallab claims that stints in solitary confinement and other measures “severely restrict his ability to practice religion” with fellow Muslims.
The inmate also claims that white supremacists regularly “harass Muslim inmates” in part of the facility known as H-unit.
“The jihadi is proud to kill in the name of God and that is exactly what God told us to do in the Koran,” Abdulmutallabmaintained during a guilty plea in October 2012.
