Mr Justice Fulford, at Snaresbrook Crown Court, east London, called for longer maximum terms in such cases.
Mr Fulford said Khan was a person of authority in Lashkar-e-Toiba - now known as Jammat-ud-dawa and banned in the UK - who could call on millions of pounds raised by UK supporters.
"You, Mohammed Ajmal Khan, in my view, are a committed terrorist," he said.
"I am of the view that greater maximum sentences are needed to enable judges to reflect more realistically the gravity of terrorism which does not need me to say is of great public concern."
What ? The maximum sentence, which the judge considered too low, is fourteen years.
So he sentences the guy to nine ?
