BREAKING: NWA 253 Terrorist Led 2007 "Anti-War" Seminar In London

Kristinn Taylor at FreeRepublic.com has done incredible research after a story appeared in the United Kingdom stating that Northwest Airlines terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab led a 2007 "anti-war" seminar in London.
Keying off an article in the UK Times Online about Northwest Airlines flight 253 bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab organizing an antiwar seminar called "War on Terror Week", I did some quick research before the links get scrubbed.

From the Times:

According to isocnews.com, an online magazine for Muslim students, War on Terror Week at University College London was one of the events of the year in 2007. There was a slick video advertisement for the event, an eye-catching poster and packed lecture theatres for five days of discussions about Guantánamo Bay, allegations of torture and the subject of “Jihad v Terrorism”.

The website reported the week of talks as “informative, relevant and always entertaining — the audience got involved with a good mixture of Muslim and non-Muslim attendees asking tough questions of the speakers”. In a corner of the poster, the event is declared to have been “approved by Umar Farook, president of UCLU Islamic Society”. The speakers advertised included George Galloway, the Respect MP; Geoffrey Bindman, the human rights lawyer; and former Guantánamo Bay detainees.

The Nigerian student who organised “War on Terror Week” in January 2007 is now better known as Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the would-be suicide bomber who tried to blow up a transatlantic airliner last week.

Mr Galloway said last night that he did not attend any of the events in War on Terror Week and had no record in his parliamentary diary of any contact with UCL Islamic Society. Mr Bindman, a visiting professor at UCL, said that he could not recall the event or meeting Mr Abdulmutallab.
Taylor found a poster of the event in a 2007 post on Little Green Footballs, before it morphed into a moonbat blog. Here's a screenshot before Charles "Icarus" Johnson takes it down or adds one of his apologetic recants, as he's done to articles he posted debunking climate change, before the failed jazz guitarist became a glo-BULL warming true believer.

Umar Farouk's name is listed in the corner of this poster. Close up of bottom left hand corner of the poster: (Approved by Umar Farook, President of UCLU Islamic Society).

Amnesty International also had their logo on the poster.

In a related story, members of Democrat Underground (DUh) championed the foiled terrorist who would have killed Americans in mid-air...

...in a thread attacking former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge for saying the NWA 253 terrorist doesn't deserve full range of rights.
And you thought the so-called "anti-war movement" was about peace? Hardly. They, as well as many liberal Democrats, facilitate terrorism by pretending it doesn't exist and attacking those in our government who try to fulfill their Constitutional duty to protect Americans.
