Top Conservatives Support Terrorism

www.salon.com Imagine if a group of leading American liberals met on foreign soil with — and expressed vocal support for — supporters of a terrorist group that had (a) a long history of hateful anti-American rhetoric, (b) an active role in both the takeover of a US embassy and Saddam Hussein’s brutal 1991 repression of Iraqi Shiites, (c) extensive financial and military support from Saddam, (d) multiple acts of violence aimed at civilians, and (e) years of being designated a “Terrorist organization” by the US under Presidents of both parties, a designation which is ongoing? The ensuing uproar and orgies of denunciation would be deafening. But on December 23, a group of leading conservatives — including Rudy Giuliani and former Bush officials Michael Mukasey, Tom Ridge, and Fran Townsend — did exactly that. In Paris, of all places, they appeared at a forum organized by supporters of the Mujaheddin-e Khalq (MEK) — a group declared by the US since 1997 to be “terrorist organization” — and expressed wholesale support for that group. Worse — on foreign soil — they vehemently criticized their own country’s opposition to these Terrorists and specifically “demanded that Obama instead take the [] group off the US list of foreign terrorist organizations and incorporate it into efforts to overturn the mullah-led government in Tehran.” In other words, they are calling on the US to embrace this Saddam-supported, US-hating Terrorist group and recruit them to help overthrow the

    the old adage, …the enemy of my enemy is my friend…. no longer applies. Today, the enemy of my enemy is going to sell him guns.

    Isn’t this hilarious?

    Republicans doing the exact opposite of what they say?

    “Terrorists hate your freedom!!” So what does Bush do? Get rid of those freedoms with the patriot act.

    @Lukeor It’s sad that “conservatives” still support the republican party, considering how unpatriotic they are.

    Jobs truth – To long to late sheeples FED UP tomorrow will a President address the UNION and implement the needed Glass–Steagall Act of 1933 or will Obama destroy America more? gambling and holding our children’s to debt bondage? playing the game of debate and rhetoric. Respect is not something you get, it’s earned, not taken. If you don’t listen to main street media you are uninformed, if you do, you are misinformed, cheats and thief’s.

    Here’s a before and after. I’m a fan of TYT and have been watching them for years, but I’m an independent. I haven’t watched this video yet; it’s about to start, but the title rings of a liberal spin story, even though I hate the conservative side more, but I hate unfounded smears the most. Let’s see if I’m right….

    …and I watched it. If it’s true, I’m ashamed of them.
    Terrorists on “our side” are just as much slime as the ones against us and it’s shameful ANYONE can support that filth.

    @wwe107 Meanwhile, on the other side of the states, there is a female porn star getting fucked in the ass, “fish hooked,” and slapped across the face. Then sells the movie for $39.95 (only to be boot legged for $1.99). God bless America!

    @wwe107 It makes me sick that I could have died fighting for this country and it’s stupid, rediculous laws. Espescially, Title 35 P.S. Section 6931 et. al. that basically says “criminals” cannot or are “not allowed” to save another life. Yet we are are pressumed to have a duty to care???

    You politicians and lawyers amaze me. If you’re not learning to be a defense lawyer, get out of my sight.

    We’ve had terrorists on our side before, but we called the “Freedom Fighters” and “Contras”

    @puddinggreg Or should I say, Republicans have had them on their side before

    Republicans are anti-american.

    All the allegations against the MeK have been disproved. They never killed Americans, or took them hostage at that. They’ve won legal battles around all these allegations. Why are some people so stupid to first believe the first things they hear, and second turn around and promote it?
