Leland Yee A Terrorist?
I don't believe in kicking a man when he's down but the question this writer from the Contra Costa Times brought up never occurred to me: Why wasn't California State Senator Leland Yee brought up on charges related to terrorism? He is accused of arranging arms deals and transferring money to a known terrorist group.
The answer seems to be that terrorist group isn't included on the official U.S. list of bad terrorist groups:
"The group is not among the 56 foreign terrorist organizations designated by the U.S. State Department, although its three-decade reign of terror, including bombings, kidnappings and killings of civilians mirror other designated groups."
Maybe like the same sort of groups we're supporting in Syria?
