#2 Dont negotiate with terrorists.
I think Obama should have chosen a more secular ally in Egypt not the Muslim Brotherhood.

#4 Obama nominated Hagel and in all likelihood will get his will.
What adverse consequences would he have to fear if he pardoned and deported the Sheikh?
Democrats and some Republicans would rationalize this move as a reaching out gesture to a MB that is becoming more moderate. Plus Islam is Peace!
Ed Koch admitted that Obama managed to intimidate him. Why wouldn't others be scared as well?

#5 The release of Sheikh Rahman will coincide with some other event which the Champ will wish to camouflage via media swarming.
Interesting how the weekly 'crisis de jour' have relocated Benghazi as well as Fast & Furious to the rear burner. If he ever leaves office, Champ could easily be retained as a guest lecturing senior psychological operations planner/mentor at Fort Bragg. I must admit, while painful, it is indeed instructional to watch this administration in action.
