[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text](Investors.com) – More than 300 people attending a free-speech event in Dallas dodged a massacre by IS terrorists because of quick action by local police — and despite an Obama-appointed judge, who in 2011 freed one of the terrorists.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]At least one of the two AK-47-armed, body-armor-clad terrorists who tried to gun down the crowd gathered at the Muhammad Art Exhibit & Contest in the Dallas area was well known to the FBI. Agents had arrested Elton “Ebrahim” Simpson, a Muslim convert, in 2010 for lying to them about his plans to join al-Qaida in Somalia.
But then-U.S. District Judge Mary Murguia released him from custody the next year, despite recordings in which he made it clear he sought to kill himself and others in “jihad” and despite his ties to a former U.S. Navy sailor busted for leaking details about warship movements to al-Qaida.
Murguia, a liberal Democrat whose twin sister heads the radical, pro-illegal immigrant group La Raza, bought the defense’s argument that by “jihad,” their client didn’t mean to imply any violence and that jihad means things other than holy war.
The judge argued in her 2011 ruling that FBI agents made “inferential leaps” when they charged Simpson with involvement in international terrorism based on his statements that he wanted to go to the “battlefield” in Somalia to “fight” non-Muslims in a “martyrdom” operation.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Though his intentions seemed clear, Murguia ruled that Simpson wasn’t lying about engaging in terrorism. She concluded that he was simply a devout Muslim who was lying about things suspiciously terroristic.
