"Supporting Al Qaeda"

Since September 11, the US Republicans have been constantly alleging that by not backing their political program for wealth transfer and endless war, their political opponents have been "supporting Al Qaeda".

It now turns out that the exact opposite was the case. Mark Siljander, a former Republican Congressman, has been charged with laundering money for and obstructing a federal investigation into a charity with ties to Al Qaeda. I guess that's what happens when you put personal enrichment ahead of all other goals.

Somehow, though, I don't think this will silence the Republican sewer in its allegations and insinuations of "disloyalty".
