Non-Islamic Terrorists Get Special Privileges In Prisons

A Facebook acquaintance from California had a letter to the Washington Times editor published recently. It correctly questioned the Obama administration denying Islamic terrorists are, in fact, Islamic and the fact that some of these "non-Islamic" terrorists (as labeled by the President himself) receive all of the Islamic items required by their faith while in federal and military prisons?

Rick Reiss wrote to the Times:

The Obama administration would have America believe that killers such as Sept. 11, 2011, mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and U.S. Army “workplace violence” purveyor Nidal Hasan are somehow false Muslims because their terrorist crimes are not in accordance with the tenets of Islam.

If all this were indeed true, then the Obama administration should immediately confiscate the Korans, prayer rugs, halal meals and any other related articles of Islamic faith from all of these terrorists locked up in federal maximum security and U.S. military prisons. An incarcerated “fake” Muslim has no business possessing a Koran or dining on halal meals.

As Rick's letter accurately points out - if the President of the United States declares that those who murder in the name of Islam are "not Islamic," because Islam is a "religion of peace" and "no religion condones the murder of innocents," then why does his administration insist that these same terrorists receive benefits of their Islamic faith while in prison for their terrorist acts? In addition to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Nidal Hasan (who was given a pass on his terrorist act by the Obama administration and was charged with workplace violence instead of terrorism), there is also Richard Reid, the shoe bomber, Ahmed Ressam, the would-be “millennium bomber,” who plotted to attack Los Angeles International Airport, Faisal Shahzad, who tried to set off a car bomb in Times Square in 2010, and Zacarias Moussaoui, the man suspected of being part of the 9/11 attack on the United States and convicted of a terrorist plot.

So are Islamic terrorists not Islamic when they are murdering innocent people and blowing things up but suddenly become Islamic when they get arrested? 

None of these inmates, under President Obama's definition, are Islamic, yet they receive Qurans, prayer rugs, halal meals and various other privileges afforded Muslims in prison. If they're not Islamic why should they receive Islamic privileges at the expense of the taxpayers? Following President Obama's own words the Attorney General should immediately stop issuing any and all Islamic privileges to these particular inmates. They are not Islamic therefore they have no right to receive them.

Isn't that right, Mr. President?

By the way - Rick and I are both retired from the Federal Bureau of Prisons. We know a little bit about the subject.
