    FRANKFURT, Germany An Islamic extremist who killed two U.S. airmen bound for Afghanistan at Frankfurt airport last year and injured two others was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison on Friday.

    The state court in Frankfurt convicted 22-year-old Arid Uka of two counts of murder. It also found him guilty of three counts of attempted murder and serious bodily harm for wounding two other servicemen and taking aim at a third before his 9 mm pistol jammed.

    Uka, an ethnic Albanian from Kosovo, killed Senior Airman Nicholas J. Alden, 25, of Williamston, S.C., and Airman 1st Class Zachary R. Cuddeback, 21, of Greene County, Va., in the March 2 attack on the Afghanistan-bound servicemen as they were boarding a bus at the airport.

    Judge Thomas Sagebiel ruled that Uka bears "particularly severe guilt," citing the nature of his ambush on the soldiers, the fact he shot unarmed people from behind and the severity of the injuries he inflicted.

    That means he won't immediately be eligible for parole after 15 years as is usual in Germany.

    Maybe they could have him serve the sentence at Gitmo. I'm sure it wouldn't be too long of a life sentence.

    I look for Al-Qaeda to use him as trade bait, in return for no terrorist acts against German targets. Angela Merkel will cave to those threats. Ari Uka will not serve very long. After his release the threats will still be there.

    The crazy thing is that he will eventually be eligible for parole.

    I was down the road from there when he shot the Airmen.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
