Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

If This Doesn't Kill Giuliani's Chances . . .

Check out this article in The Village Voice . They connect Giuliani to the royal family of Qatar -- the same royal family that the "9/11 Commission" identified as protecting Khalid Sheikh Muhammad (KSM),the terrorist that planned 9-11.

Rudy Giuliani appeared on CNN with al-Thani [right after 9-11] and vouched for the emir when Larry King asked the mayor: "You are a friend of his, are you not?" . . .

. . . Giuliani Partners, the consulting company that has made Giuliani rich, feasts at the Qatar trough, doing business with the ministry run by the very member of the royal family identified in news and government reports as having concealed KSM—the terrorist mastermind who wired funds from Qatar to his nephew Ramzi Yousef prior to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, and who also sold the idea of a plane attack on the towers to Osama bin Laden—on his Qatar farm in the mid-1990s. . . .

Abdallah al-Thani is also said to have welcomed Osama bin Laden on two visits to the farm, a charge repeated as recently as October 10, 2007, in a Congressional Research Service study. Abdallah al-Thani's interior ministry or the state-owned company it helps oversee, Qatar Petroleum, has worked with Giuliani Security & Safety LLC, a subsidiary of Giuliani Partners, on an undisclosed number of contracts, the value of which neither the government nor the company will release. . . .

. . . Abdallah al-Thani has been widely accused of helping to spirit KSM out of Qatar in 1996, just as the FBI was closing in on him. . .

I wonder if Fox will be able to spin Rudy out of this relevation as just a "mistakes were made" faux pas? Too bad the writers guild is out on strike -- Rupert Merdock sure could use a couple of good writers now.

    This will be the end of Rudy if he is held accountable by the corporate media. We cannot allow this story to be confined to the blogosphere. It's time to speak up, folks!
