He’s also the one who used his despicable lawyer to pass messages to his followers to perform terrorist acts. So sure, listen to Morsi about how much more humane it would be if Abdel-Rahman would be allowed visits by friends and family. Because it’s not like he used people before to bring messages of terror out of prison.
