It's Not a Joke and It's Really Scary
"Lynne was convicted of conspiring to prepare to assist Sattar’s conspiracy and with actually preparing to assist Sattar's conspiracy. " So says Lynne Stewart's lawyer in an interview on Democracy Now this morning.
And for conspiriing to prepare to assist, Ms Stewart faces the possibility of being imprisoned for the rest of her life.
By the way, the so-called conspiracy for which she was tried was the reading of a press release to Reuters! No secret meetings in the dark corners of coffee shops and bars. Just a telephone call to a major news outlet to make a public statement.
If you aren't a "card-carrying member" of the ACLU yet, nows the time to become one. This is terrifying stuff.
