A 1998 memo written by al-Qaida military chief Mohammed Atef reveals that Osama bin Laden’s group had detailed knowledge of negotiations that were taking place between Afghanistan’s ruling Taliban and American government and business leaders over plans for a U.S. oil and gas pipeline across that Central Asian country.

Good thing Ron Paul took the principled stand and voted against the war in Afghanistan.

The e-mail memo was found in 1998 on a computer seized by the FBI during its investigation into the 1998 African embassy bombings, which were sponsored by al-Qaida.

I can't quite decide which element of this video is most galling.  Is it that a CNN and MSNBC regular decided to bring a camera crew along to capture her criminal act for posterity?  Or could it be that this one-time Reuters "journalist" clearly has absolutely no concept of what "freedom of speech" actually means?  Perhaps it's the equation of support for Israel and opposition to violent jihad with "racism."  Tough call.  I am, however, confident about the best part of this clip: The moment when the obnoxious, unhinged, aggressively ignorant Leftist gets dragged away in handcuffs as passers-by...
