Jiddah Al, Hannoi Jane and Cong Kerry - Try 'em and Hang 'em

Former Vice President and unsuccessful Presidential candidate Al Gore distinguished himself this past Sunday by appearing before an audience of Saudi Arabians at the Jiddah Economic Forum and committing foul treason.

The U.S. government, Gore said, has committed "terrible abuses" against Arabs after the Sept. 11, 2001, by indiscriminately rounding up "and holding in unforgivable conditions" Saudi citizens. He added that the Bush administration was playing into al-Qaida's hands by routinely blocking Saudi visa applications.

"The thoughtless way in which visas are now handled, that is a mistake," Gore said. "The worst thing we can possibly do is to cut off the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States."

He didn't stop there. "Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it's wrong," he added. "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."

Mr. Gore should be challenged by the American media to produce evidence of these "terrible abuses." He did not provide that evidence in his talk, nor has anyone asked him to do so. As far as I can tell, the mainstream media has ignored his speech and has not even reported it.

Jane Fonda and John Kerry made similar accusations during the Viet Nam war and our soldiers were tortured and killed because of it.

It's time the American people held political activists and politicians responsible for their words and actions. This kind of treason during wartime should not only be brought before the American public but should tried and punished in a court of law.

I don't believe in ranting, Serberus. I believe in impassioned discourse but never mindless ranting.

Frankly, I don't think the treatment the prisoners at gitmo get comes anywhere near abuse -- they're allowed Korans, fed well, allowed to exercise, even watch TV. They should be held in tiny, underground, light-less cages and fed bread and water if fed at all. These prisoners were captured on a field of battle, trying to kill Americans. They were not imprisoned for traffic offenses.
