R'uh roh! Rudy on air with 9/11 conspirator and KSM protector -*BOOM!*
Rudy's Ties to a Terror Sheikh
http://www.villagevoice.com/news/0748,barrett,78478,6.h...

Three weeks after 9/11, when the roar of fighter jets still haunted the citys skyline, the emir of gas-rich Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifah al-Thani, toured Ground Zero. Although a member of the emirs own royal family had harbored the man who would later be identified as the mastermind of the attacka man named Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, often referred to in intelligence circles by his initials, KSMal-Thani rushed to New York in its aftermath, offering to make a $3 million donation, principally to the families of its victims. Rudy Giuliani, apparently unaware of what the FBI and CIA had long known about Qatari links to Al Qaeda, appeared on CNN with al-Thani that night and vouched for the emir when Larry King asked the mayor: You are a friend of his, are you not?

Abdallah al-Thani remains a named defendant in the 9/11 lawsuits that are still proceeding in Manhattan federal court, but his Washington lawyers declined to address the charges that he shielded KSM, insisting only that he never supported any terrorist acts. Asked if Abdallah al-Thani ever supported any terrorists rather than their acts, his lawyer David Nachman declined to comment further. The Congressional Research Service report summarized the evidence against him: According to the 9/11 Commission Report and former U.S. government officials, royal family member and current Qatari Interior Minister, Sheikh Abdullah (Abdallah) bin Khalid Al Thani, provided safe harbor and assistance to Al Qaeda leaders during the 1990s, including KSM. While numerous accounts have named Abdallah as the KSM tipster, the report simply says that a high ranking member of the Qatari government is believed to have alerted KSM to the impending raid.

In other words, as incredible as it might seem, Rudy Giulianiwhose presidential candidacy is steeped in 9/11 iconographyhas been doing business with a government agency run by the very man who made the attacks on 9/11 possible. Read on

2. Yeah, this is BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!
Olbermann is covering it right now. It first aired during the GOP debate--this deserves to be shown at the weekend on MSNBC as well.
