Tunisian Man Gets Plea Deal For Amtrak Terror Plot – New York Post
A Tunisian man charged in an unsuccessful plot to derail an Amtrak train en route from Penn Station to Toronto copped a plea Wednesday to less serious immigration charges.
Ahmed Abassi, 27, avoided terrorism charges by pleading guilty in Manhattan federal court to lying on his visa application and to immigration officials when asked why he flew to the United States in 2013.
“I stated on my visa application that my intention was to enter the United States to engage in business” as a real estate agent, Abassi told Judge Miriam Cedarbaum. “I lied because my entire purpose was to return to Canada.”
Abassi, who previously lived in Canada, “radicalized” one of the alleged train plotters, Chiheb Esseghaier, and met with him in New York City after traveling here in mid-March of 2013, prosecutors said last year in court filings. An undercover agent recorded both men discussing a plot to release bacteria in the air or water to kill up to 100,000 people. the feds said.
Abassi faces up six years in prison at sentencing on July 23 but could be released from jail and immediately deported if Cedarbaum agrees to a defense request for time served. His lawyer, Sabrina Shroff, claimed the undercover agent entrapped her client.
Abassi had faced up to 50 years in prison on terror charges.
The plea deal is a far cry from how Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara previously portrayed him in a statement last year in which he referred to Abassi as radical planning to “commit acts of terror and develop a network of terrorists here.”

BLS being my newest Liberal Malady Bitter lesbian Syndrome
A New Jersey waitress who claimed that a family left her an anti-gay message instead of a tip was faking the whole thing, according to the accused family.
Dayna Morales, a lesbian former Marine who works at Gallop Asian Bistro in Branchburg, said that she was given no tip on a $93.55 dinner bill for a family of four — a husband, wife and their two children.
To make matters worse, Morales claimed that she received a homophobic message that read “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.”
“I am THOROUGHLY offended mad pissed off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free,” wrote Morales in an email to Have a Gay Day, a gay advocacy non-profit.
“Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we never cross paths again,” continued Morales.
Seems like an outrageous thing for anyone to do right? Screwing over a server, and leaving an nasty message at the same time. But, we know Liberals will invent their own realities, and their own victim hood don’t we?
But the accused family claims that Morales is lying. They contacted NBC 4 New York on their own accord and provided documents to prove that they left Morales a generous tip, minus the nasty message.
The couple, who wanted to remain anonymous, provided NBC 4 New York a copy of their Visa bill as well as their copy of the restaurant receipt to show that they left an $18 tip on the $93.55 tab — or just shy of 20 percent.
As further proof, the time stamp on the receipt provided by the couple also matches that of the one Morales posted on Facebook. The wife also noted that she is left-handed and that the slash mark on the tip line seems to have been written by someone who is right-handed.
UH-OH! The waitress received thousands in donations after her story went viral, maybe this was all about scamming for money? Or maybe it is the dreaded BLS striking.
You ought to know who he IS a fan of. Via The Daily Caller
Los Angeles police launched a manhunt Thursday for former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, who is suspected of murdering two people last weekend and killing one person and wounding another in a shooting Thursday morning. A lengthy manifesto on Dorner’s Facebook page states his support for President Barack Obama and CNN host Piers Morgan, and his hatred of both the National Rifle Association and former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The manifesto, reportedly 22 pages long, expressed the suspected killer’s support for President Obama and anti-gun CNN host Piers Morgan.
“You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President,” Dorner wrote of those opposed to President Obama.
“Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama,” Dorner wrote.
“[G]ive Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card,” he added.
“Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws.”
No, I am not blaming the president, or Morgan, This guy is a nutcase, and he alone is responsible for his evil acts. I just wanted the TRUTH to get out before the Left starts blaming people like me.
