Former Republican Congressman Indicted For Helping Taliban

My goodness

WASHINGTON (AP) – A former congressman and delegate to the United Nations was indicted Wednesday as part of a terrorist fundraising ring that allegedly sent more than $130,000 to an al-Qaida and Taliban supporter who has threatened U.S. and international troops in Afghanistan.
The former Republican congressman from Michigan, Mark Deli Siljander, was charged with money laundering, conspiracy and obstructing justice for allegedly lying about lobbying senators on behalf of an Islamic charity that authorities said was secretly sending funds to terrorists.

It looks like he’s given us a clue about his changed view earlier this year

Former Michigan congressman Mark Siljander will recount his spiritual journey in which he “discovered commonalities between Islam and Christianity” in Reconcilable Differences: The True Story of the Quest to Bridge the Divide Between Islam and Christianity, slated for a summer 2008 publication by HarperSanFrancisco. Siljander also served as US ambassador to the United Nations.

This should be interesting to watch.

    Executions in the US are not open to the public.

    What a load. If there are “commonalities” why you make with the money to the “kill infidels” crowd, huh Marq?
    It sounds like a case of “Some religions are more equal than others.”
