Please Ignore the Fact We Admitted to Terrorism

Nathaniel Botwinick @ NRO:

Welcome to the unfortunate world of legal disclosure. In a lawsuit over a 2002 bombing in Israel that killed two Americans, the Palestinian Authority accidentally admitted to something everyone knows — that it is directly involved in terrorism. However, presiding judge Richard Leon has ordered the incriminating memo returned or destroyed. From the New York Post today:

A U.S. judge has ruled that the Palestinian Authority has the right to cover up a memo linking it to a suicide bombing that killed two teen American citizens in Israel, The Post has learned.

The document — accidentally handed over to lawyers suing the authority for $300 million on behalf of the teens’ parents — reveals a “close relationship” between the bomber and a captain in the Palestinian Authority security forces who planned the terror attack, court papers say.

The two-page memo, written in April 2012 by Maj. Ziad Abu Hamid of the authority’s General Intelligence Service, also details “at least six other critical facts” about the 2002 bombing and “clearly establishes the defendants’ material support and liability,” the federal court filing says.

    IIRC the bombers were rewarded by Saddam Hussain with $25,000 (approximately) for each death.
    Until he left power and went into hiding Saddam made sure to let anyone know he loved the death of a Jew.

    Totally unsurprising (that they’re terrorists, I mean). Well, maybe a little surprising that the judge would try to claw back the information once leaked.
    Keep in mind of course that the Pakistani intelligence service has about a hundred times as much evidence tying it to terrorism of various sorts and yet we send those guys $2 billion a year. Go figure.

    This in and of itself is very disturbing…

    @FAITH7:
    All the more reason the war against Islamic extremist terrorism must never be approached as if it were a law enforcement issue.
    With 4 years to play with, what are the odds Obama lets the Blind Sheik (who tried to bring down the World Trade Center in 1993) go?

    And the judge decided to help them cover it up. That is what happens when leftists take over the legal system.
