Another was close to the Taliban while Osama bin Laden was on the rise in Afghanistan; a third was linked to a bank in the Bahamas involved in al Qaeda’s financial network; a fourth had a close connection to one of Saddam’s would-be nuclear-bomb makers.
Why isn’t this on the news? Why is Martha Stewart treated like a bigger threat to American security than Kofi Annon?
