As will forever be the case with Islam:

NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED.

It really just shows how this house of cards built on lies and greenbacks,the American Empire, is collapsing before our eyes.

The Achilles heel,U.S. interference in carving up Israel to the greedy,intolerant,bloodthirsty Arabs is the last straw.

Why are the tax dollars of US citizens going to support these Islamo-nazi baboons? Are US politicians getting kickbacks?

Yes, I'm sure the "Kosovian" government will cooperate at least until it gets its hands on the witness list. Whereupon all those witnesses will turn into involuntary organ donors, and CoE will shrug helplessly that they have "no evidence".

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail is suggesting that Belgians are harvesting organs from euthanized patients (I am taking this with a chunk of salt, but still)...

In a way, yes. There is a well-established pattern being seen within America's State Department and other diplomatic circles whereby a disturbing number of its outgoing top analysts and policy-makers find lucrative six-figure employment as Saudi Public Relations mouthpieces but only so long as they have NOT ONCE raised any hue and cry about Islam and its doctrinal policy of global terrorism during their tenure in government service.

You can be sure that a similar "retirement plan" exists for our leading politicians. Just look at Jimmy Carter. [spit]

An excerpt: The extent of Carter's financial support from, and even dependence on, dirty money is still not fully known. What we do know is deeply troubling. Carter and his Center have accepted millions of dollars from suspect sources, beginning with the bail-out of the Carter family peanut business in the late 1970s by BCCI, a now-defunct and virulently anti-Israeli bank indirectly controlled by the Saudi Royal family, and among whose principal investors is Carter's friend, Sheikh Zayed. Agha Hasan Abedi, the founder of the bank, gave Carter "$500,000 to help the former president establish his center...[and] more than $10 million to Mr. Carter's different projects." [emphasis added]

@ Zenster,

So it's basically bribery after the fact eh? Bribery after services rendered rather than before.

I've read some ugly stuff about the Clintonistas and their "foundation" vis-a-vis Islamo-nazi petro-states as well.

Time to bring back ABSCAM, time to bring back the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities (but not for Communism this time around).
