What's Going Rate For Helping Terrorists These Days?

28 months. That's how long Lynne Stewart will be in prison for helping the blind sheik correspond with his buddies back home.

She acknowledged that she zealously tried to save a blind Egyptian sheik from life in prison for plotting to blow up New York City landmarks.

She could've faced 30 years, and while the woman's treatment for breast cancer was most likely a factor in the reduced sentence, I still can't help but feel this is the judicial version of a U.N. resolution.

Prosecutors have called the case a major victory in the war on terrorism.

Indeed. Let the wrist-slapping now begin in earnest.
