Obama Commutes Sentence of Remorseless Terrorist Poster Child


Barack Obama commuted the sentence of terrorist Oscar López-Rivera, who fought for Puerto Rican independence with the terrorist group, FALN, and tried to overthrow the US government.

Oscar Lopez-Rivera, FALN terrorist

In federal prison since 1981, López-Rivera was convicted of seditious conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States and arms trafficking in connection with his leadership of the FALN. FALN is the notorious left-wing terrorist group that perpetrated more than 130 attacks on U.S. soil from the mid 1970s through the mid 1980s, killing six and wounding many more.

After his conviction, Lopez addressed Judge McMillen prior to his sentencing. “I am an enemy of the United States government.” Lopez also added, “I show respect for human beings but I don’t think it is reciprocated.” Judge McMillen called Lopez “an incorrigible law violator,” and then sentenced him to 55 years in prison.

He has shown no remorse.

No model prisoner, the terrorist tried to escape prison twice and attempted to secure weapons to kill his way out. The DoJ confirmed his leadership role and his boasting about it in the attempt to break out of Leavenworth prison.

Throughout his imprisonment, he maintained his deep ties to Cuba.

The government offered to free him but he would have had to swear off terrorism. He declined the deal.

By 2010, he began to petition for parole but, again, he only said he was sorry for his group’s actions, not for anything he did. He was to be released in 2023 though he had a 70 year sentence – 55 years for his crimes and 15 for his prison escape attempts.

Barack Obama decided to free him. He’s perfect! He’s a poster child for who you would want to have released!
