The Stench Of Hypocrisy

Va. Man Expected to Plead to Helping Terror Group

"A Virginia man is expected to enter a plea bargain on charges he helped produce an Internet video for a Pakistani terrorist group.

Twenty-four-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge, Va., has been jailed since his September arrest. A plea hearing has been scheduled for Friday in federal court in Alexandria.

Prosecutors allege Jubair produced and uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube last year on behalf of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Pakistani group the U.S. has designated a terrorist group since 2001."

ABC News Exclusive: The Secret War Against Iran

"A Pakistani tribal militant group responsible for a series of deadly guerrilla raids inside Iran has been secretly encouraged and advised by American officials since 2005, U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sources tell ABC News. The group, called Jundullah, is made up of members of the Baluchi tribe and operates out of the Baluchistan province in Pakistan, just across the border from Iran. It has taken responsibility for the deaths and kidnappings of more than a dozen Iranian soldiers and officials."

ABC Whitewashes History With That Last Sentence Above

"The Jundallah isn't just your standard, every day terrorist group. These guys are ruthless and fanatical.
In 2007, Dan Rather went to southern Pakistan for a first-ever interview with Abdolmalek Rigi. During the episode, a video of Rigi personally cutting off the head of a prisoner was shown. The same year they proudly claimed to have bombed a girl's school.
The terrorist group is most known for the 2009 suicide bombings of the Zahedan Mosque that killed 20 civilians and the Pishin bombing that killed another 43 people.
Rigi and many of his followers in the Jundallah grew up in the same madrasahs that the Taliban went to. Iran has accused them of using the opium trade to fund their weapons purchases."

" The following year investigative journalist Seymour Hersh reported that the U.S. Congress had approved $400 million for covert operations inside Iran. One of the beneficiaries of that money was the Jundallah.

If you think the charge that we are supporting a former Taliban, drug smuggling terrorist is bad enough, hold on, it gets worse. In 2008, a former Pakistani Army Chief, retired General Mirza Aslam Baig, not only reaffirmed that the Americans were supporting the Jundallah, but that the Jundallah was linked to al-Qaeda. This charge is nothing new. Tariq Jamil, chief of the Karachi police, said the exact same thing back in 2004 when the Jundallah was planting bombs in Pakistan and trying to kill Americans.
Put another way, the U.S. is using al-Qaeda to attack Iran."
