The imprisoned al Qaeda spiritual leader known as the "Blind Sheikh" suffered a "medical emergency" at the Springfield federal prison last week, and the FBI is warning his death could lead al Qaeda to launch terror attacks against the United States in reprisal.
According to an FBI bulletin, obtained by ABCNews.com, the 68-year-old Omar Abdel-Rahman began to spit up blood on Dec. 6, and was rushed from prison to the emergency room of St. John's Regional Hospital in Springfield, Mo.
Excuse me, but why are we wasting time rushing this animal anywhere? Oh, that's right, we're a compassionate people, and we wouldn't want anyone to hate us.
"He accepted a needed transfusion to replace lost blood. While he was under examination, medical authorities also discovered a tumor on his liver," the FBI situational awareness bulletin noted.
Sometimes, tumors are just meant to metastasize.
The FBI bulletin reminded authorities that the sheikh had previously called for reprisal attacks in the case of his death in prison.
So his followers plan to memorialize his death by ... killing people!
It would be a nice two-fer if he and Castro drop dead on the same day.
