Remem­ber the Under­wear Bomber? The guy who hated his gen­i­tals infi­dels so much that, in 2009, he got on a plane

and tried to det­o­nate plas­tic explo­sives which were stuffed down his tighty-​whities? Well, he’s still steal­ing oxy­gen and serv­ing four life terms in fed­eral super­max in Col­orado. And he’s suing the feds for allegedly vio­lat­ing his con­sti­tu­tional rights.

Umar Farouk Abdul­mu­tal­lab, a Nige­ria native who became an al-​Qaida oper­a­tive, alleges he’s being held in long-​term soli­tary con­fine­ment, has been forced to eat foods for­bid­den by his reli­gion, endured harass­ment yelled by white suprema­cist inmates say­ing things offen­sive to Mus­lims and has been pro­hib­ited from com­mu­ni­cat­ing with rel­a­tives, includ­ing nieces and nephews.

Prison walls do not form a bar­rier sep­a­rat­ing prison inmates from the pro­tec­tions of the United States Con­sti­tu­tion,” his 73-​page law­suit said.

It was filed last week in fed­eral court in Col­orado against U.S. Attor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions, the Fed­eral Bureau of Pris­ons and Joe Does 1 through 20. Spokes­peo­ple for the Bureau of Pris­ons and the U.S. Depart­ment of Jus­tice declined to com­ment on the case.

Mem­ory hav­ing served me cor­rectly, Abdulmutallab’s father strolled up to a CIA sta­tion in Nigeria’s cap­i­tal and warned them about his son; gave him up. How big of a loser do you have to be for that to happen?

A jury of any demo­graphic mix will dis­miss this case – even if it’s 12 Mus­lims. Who would want to be asso­ci­ated with such a pathetic crea­ture, one who couldn’t even cas­trate him­self properly?

His back­ground is unsur­pris­ing. His father is very rich by African stan­dards; he has a mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing degree from Uni­ver­sity Col­lege Lon­don. This is the stan­dard biog­ra­phy for the “old school” ter­ror­ists of ear­lier in the cen­tury. Can’t build up your com­mu­nity but you can build a bomb … except Abdul­mu­tal­lab couldn’t even do that.

So now he has to spend his life pre­tend­ing not to like bacon and get­ting laughed at by White Power ‘tards — and oth­ers, no doubt –when he could have been enjoy­ing his virgins/​Virginians/​raisins, iron­i­cally because he didn’t pay enough atten­tion to the func­tion of his fiz­zled feat of engi­neer­ing. Sad.

I’d sue some­body, too, if I were him, start­ing with my parents.

and tried to detonate plastic explosives which were stuffed down his tighty-whities? Well, he’s still stealing oxygen and serving four life terms in federal supermax in Colorado. And he’s suing the feds for allegedly violating his constitutional rights.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigeria native who became an al-Qaida operative, alleges he’s being held in long-term solitary confinement, has been forced to eat foods forbidden by his religion, endured harassment yelled by white supremacist inmates saying things offensive to Muslims and has been prohibited from communicating with relatives, including nieces and nephews.

“Prison walls do not form a barrier separating prison inmates from the protections of the United States Constitution,” his 73-page lawsuit said.

It was filed last week in federal court in Colorado against U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Federal Bureau of Prisons and Joe Does 1 through 20. Spokespeople for the Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment on the case.

Memory having served me correctly, Abdulmutallab’s father strolled up to a CIA station in Nigeria’s capital and warned them about his son; gave him up. How big of a loser do you have to be for that to happen?

A jury of any demographic mix will dismiss this case – even if it’s 12 Muslims. Who would want to be associated with such a pathetic creature, one who couldn’t even castrate himself properly?

His background is unsurprising. His father is very rich by African standards; he has a mechanical engineering degree from University College London. This is the standard biography for the “old school” terrorists of earlier in the century. Can’t build up your community but you can build a bomb … except Abdulmutallab couldn’t even do that.

So now he has to spend his life pretending not to like bacon and getting laughed at by White Power ‘tards — and others, no doubt –when he could have been enjoying his virgins/Virginians/raisins, ironically because he didn’t pay enough attention to the function of his fizzled feat of engineering. Sad.

I’d sue somebody, too, if I were him, starting with my parents.
