I received the following email:
Something to Think About:
If Barack Obama would apply for a job with the FBI or with the Secret Service (or the US Marshals Service or Transportation Security Administration / Department of Homeland Security), he would be disqualified because of his past association with William Ayers, a known terrorist. If he is elected President he would not qualify to be his own Body Guard. He can't even check his own bags for a regular airline flight right now.
If I used my position to stop the investigation of someone who I received money from I would be convicted of a crime.
Further reading if you are interested.
Many of us are not be qualified to be in the CIA, FBI, Secret Service, US Marshals Service, Transportation Security Administration, Department of Homeland Security or qualify to receive support or payments for work done for the CIA, FBI & etc.
Unfortunately a real “modern day” terrorist “worked” for OUR government's interests.
A quote from the previous wiki I find interesting: The Russian journal Demokratizatsiya has described U.S. support for the Afghan Mujahideen as "the model for state-sponsored terrorism."
I guess one country's terrorist is another country's freedom fighter. The previous article led me to this.
Most conservatives thought the missiles were an attempt to deflect attention from the Monica Lewinsky Scandal.
This led me to more interesting reading.
Today's politicians should focus on today's terrorists and leave yesterday's terrorists for the historians. There are more active terrorists in the Christian Identity Movements and Militias than Radical Leftists from the Weather Underground.
Ergo, Therefore and in Summation:
If Barack Obama's association with William Ayers leaves him unfit for political office then John McCain is certainly barred from the same office.
If Barack Obama's association with William Ayers brands him a terrorist, then any affiliation with a Christian denomination lumps the follower in with the Christian Identity Movement just like most Americans lump any affiliation with Islam in with Islamic Jihad.
That kind of thinking made every American guilty for every crime committed by any regime or group supported by the US and prompted some of today's terrorists to attack the USA, its embassys, its warships and its interests.
