London Tube Bomber Trainer Freed By USA

He apparently helped US intelligence so much that he got released early.

An American jihadist who set up the terrorist training camp where the leader of the 2005 London suicide bombers learned how to manufacture explosives, has been quietly released after serving only four and a half years of a possible 70-year sentence, a Guardian investigation has learned.

The unreported sentencing of Mohammed Junaid Babar to "time served" because of what a New York judge described as "exceptional co-operation" that began even before his arrest has raised questions over whether Babar was a US informer at the time he was helping to train the ringleader of the 7 July tube and bus bombings.

Aside: We should revoke citizenship for all American jihadists? If one so fundamentally rejects what America stands for then why not make them an ex-citizen?

I'd like to know what intelligence he provided that was so valuable that it justifies not locking him up for decades. I'd also like to know why we wasn't just killed along with anyone else involved in the London 7/7 bombings.

It makes sense. If these people are so unhappy with our country and culture, why not make them leave? They should find someplace to live that is more compatible with their beliefs.

So what exactly does America stand for nowadays? anyways?

Freedom or Safety?

Equality or Capitalism?

Bravery or cameras up the ass?

Honor or Profit?

Haaaawd work or obessity?

Self Achievent or Divine Providence? (whatever that means)

Let's be specific, What does America stand for?

Is it fast food?, x-ray screens?, wild west?, brotherly love?, kick ass?, foot-ball?, base-ball?, basket-ball?, immigrants?, non-immigrants?, indians?

We should never have let them in in the first place. Islamic violence within Western nations is just a manifestation of the violence of the policies of racist colonialism the elites of the west are committing against their own nations and peoples, as is wide-spread criminal violence by foreigners in these nations. Does the "Guardian" staff qualify as a group involved in the bombings? In a larger sense they do.

For a neat little example of what I was talking about above read this story from the U.K.:

Four men slashed teacher's face and left him with fractured skull 'for teaching other religions to Muslim girls'
