Rep. Peter King and terrorism

Rep. Peter King and terrorism March 13, 2011

You might have heard concerns about Rep. Peter King's credibility as anti-terror inquisitioner given his own sketchy past as an apologist for the IRA. Well, it turns out that "hypocritical" really doesn't do this man's inconsistency justice. During the 1980s, the guy was associating with IRA operatives at the same time that they were receiving "hundreds of tons of arms and explosives, including Sam-7 missile launchers, mortars, heavy machine guns, 1000's of AK-47, 5-7 tons of Semtex, millions of rounds etc., provided gratis by Gaddafi."

Peter King is, in one sense, uniquely qualified to hold hearings on the "radicalization" of young men to a terrorist cause: He may be the only member of the United States Congress to have undergone the process himself, at the hands of the Irish Republican Army.
