Cons Supporting Terrorists (AGAIN!)

Wanted for arrest and prosecution: Rudy Giuliani and Bushites Michael Mukasey, Tom Ridge, and Fran Townsend. For violating U.S. law and providing material support to a U.S. designated terrorist organization:

EXCERPT: 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 U.S. 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 U.S. under Presidents of both parties, a designation which is ongoing? The ensuing uproar and orgies of denunciation would be deafening. (This will never see the light of day in the "Liberal" Press)

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.

GOPocrisy Knows No Bounds!

And remember that in June the SCROTUS Robed Reationary Political Hactivists ruled that the USA (un)PATRIOT ACT superceded the first amendment, criminalizing even speech in support of designated terrorist groups and even when it's done by humanitarian groups trying to get these organizations to use international law to resolve conflicts peacefully: (Cuz you know the Warrantless-Wire-Tapping-Cons just loves them a bounch O Constitution, hell they're reading it on the floor of the house today!)

Once again we see with the GOPsters that it's not about issues or principals, but about power and control and whose got it and who they want to keep it. The Mujaheddin-e Khalq (MEK) aren't terrorists anymore, they're Fricken Freedom Fighters!

I just know the FBI is gonna perp walk these creeps any minute now, right? Cuz in America we believe in the rule of law and equal justice under it. Yeah right. Freedom, Justice and Democracy, my ass!

sean, the MEK "was added to the [foreign terrorist organization] list in 1997 as part of an effort by President Bill Clinton's administration to reach out to Tehran." How's that out reach working out for ya?

It's also interesting that "a Washington federal appeals court in July ordered Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to review the listing, and cast doubt on some of the information brought forward to support it. " Now why would you leave that bit out of your post? How very unserious.

All quotes from:

They (Guiliani, Ridge, Mukasky) vehemently criticized their own country's opposition to these Terrorists and specifically "demanded that Obama instead take the group off the U.S. list of foreign terrorist organizations and incorporate it into efforts to overturn the mullah-led government in Tehran."

OH LOOK What the Bush administration concluded in 2007: Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK)
a.k.a. MKO; Mujahedin-e Khalq; Muslim Iranian Students' Society; National Council of Resistance; National Council of Resistance (NCR); Organization of the People's Holy Warriors of Iran; The National Liberation Army of Iran (NLA); The People's Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI); National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI); Sazeman-e Mujahedin-e Khalq-e Iran

The MEK advocates the violent overthrow of the Iranian regime and was responsible for the assassination of several U.S. military personnel and civilians in the 1970's. MEK leadership and members across the world maintain the capacity and will to commit terrorist acts in Europe, the Middle East, the United State, Canada, and beyond. (

Just HOW would the U.S. use this group to overthrow the Iranian regime, that would NOT constitute terrorism? How would this be different from Iran using Hezzbollah as their proxy to conduct terrorist acts against Israel? I await your calls for their arrest, lest ye by silence declare thyself a GOPocrit.

Grey. Many times the best solution in the realm of foreign policy is not a good one. The use of freedom fighters that use questionable methods to overthrow a terrorist state like Iran is not a clean solution, but it is an effective way to keep the body temperature of millions of humans in Israel well under 10,000 degrees Celsius. This is one of the many things that fall outside the black and white way of thinking that you are expert in. Someday you may gain the wisdom and maturity to understand. Until then remember: Socks first, then shoes.

Thank you for confirming that you support terrorism as long as you agree with the goal.

Your end justifies, you're mean.

I do support use of asymmetrical force if it minimizes suffering and bloodshed. I'm appalled that you support mass genocide. Not surprised, you're a leftist after all, just appalled.

Sean Cranley said...

I support nothing of the kind and your saying I do is just another one of your lies, revealing once again your lack of integrity.
