Amnesty International's long history of support for terrorism

Rósín McAliskey. Note that a) McAliskey was actually accused of carrying out a terrorist attack, rather than various purely notional and verbal crimes and that b) Rósín McAliskey's connection to organisations fundamentally opposed to the values of Amnesty International was a lot more obvious and direct than Moazzam Begg's - her common-law husband served time for being a member of the IRA. Nonetheless, I don't think there was much controversy at the time over the fact that Amnesty took up her case; apart, of course, from the usual crew of yahoos and bollixes who had been trying to pin the terrorists on the British human rights community ever since they pointed out that there was something unpleasant going on in Long Kesh.

Well the yahoos and bollixes crowd get very riled when their own wrong doings get exposed, the more correct the accusation the worse the crime, damn you again AI.

Policy makers would do well to learn from Wilson's bi-partisan approach, and commitment to American engagement in world affairs.

ROFL.
