Why is John McCain Funding Terrorism?

John McCain is trying to smear Barack Obama with a relationship to Rashid Khalidi, a man he implies is a terrorist. But back in the early 90′™s John McCain headed the International Republican Institute, which funded Mr. Khalidi’™s academic pursuits. So why does John McCain fund people he thinks are terrorists, and why does he hate America?

I just finished writing about this, but I think it deserves another go. McCain is trying to smear Barack Obama with a supposed relationship to Rashid Khalidi, a US citizen and distinguished academic who used to be the spokesperson for the PLO. Turns out McCain, in his role as the Chairman of the International Republican Institute, granted Khalidi $448,000 to carry out a study concerning peace in the Middle East. I think that’™s money well spent. Evidently the McCain campaign thinks that is equivalent to funding terrorism.

Why is McCain funding terrorism? Why does he hate America?
