The “underwear bomber” who tried and failed to detonate a bomb during an international flight near Detroit almost eight years ago says his rights are being violated in prison. He is now suing the federal government in a 73-page court filing.
The Denver Post reported:
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who failed in a Christmas Day 2009 attempt to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253, with a bomb sewn into his underwear, is suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, claiming his First, Fifth and Eight Amendments rights are being violated.
On today’s show, Glenn reminded everyone of what this would-be terrorist tried to do. The Nigerian man is serving four terms of life imprisonment plus 50 years after being convicted on charges including “attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction on a commercial airliner.”
