Al Gore American Traitor

In a time when America is staring down the fundamentalist Islamic world, Al Gore steps in to let them know these is still a soft underbelly in America. The former Vice-President told a mainly Saudi audience on Sunday that the U.S. government committed "terrible abuses" against Arabs after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and that most Americans did not support such treatment.

Gore said Arabs had been "indiscriminately rounded up" and held in "unforgivable" conditions. The former vice president said the Bush administration was playing into al-Qaida's hands by routinely blocking Saudi visa applications.

The fact that Gore would make these assertions (which never seem to be followed up with example) is bad enough. Making them before an audience desperate to believe them is another matter altogether. Gore needs on one hand to satisfy the fringe left while making sure that the majority of Americans don’t hear his treachery. If this were only Al Gore, maybe it would pass as the simple-minded ranting of an angry ignorant man. It isn’t only Al Gore; it’s John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, and John Kerry who will look for any opportunity to gain political points, even at the expense of our war effort.

"Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it's wrong," Gore said. "I do want you to know that it does not represent the desires or wishes or feelings of the majority of the citizens of my country."

Worse abuses come in the form of irresponsible drivel that further serves to inflame those who really don’t need a reason to be inflamed to begin with. What Islamic fanatics need are the useful idiots on the left so they can claim that they are not alone in their views of the west. In a sick and twisted way this also serves to elevate the value of the life of an Islamic over those who are not. Gore chooses innuendo and wild accusations about the treatment of Arabs over any sort of call for those who fund and support the killing of innocents.
It wasn’t so long ago that this kind of behavior would be rewarded with handcuffs and prison sentences.
