Big GOP doner now an accused terrorist?

Hmmmm.

And what do you all make of this? A man named Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari gave $15,250 to the National Republican Campaign Committee between 2002 and 2007.

As of last Friday, Mr. Alishtari stands accused of gifting over $125,000 for the purchase of night vision goggles by an international terrorist ring.

Among Mr. Alishtari's accomplishments was being listed by the NRCC as New York State Businessman of the Year in 2003 and 2004.

ABC's Brian Ross had a few things to say about the NRCC's Businessman of the Year program not so long ago. Apparently it is little more than a telemarketing scam.

Mr. Alishtari's wife insists he is innocent, and he very well may be.

But it is interesting that the NRCC refuses to acknowledge this man gave to them, or that he was ever given an accolade by the group.

But then again, he did donate over $15K to the GOP. Perhaps the accusation that he funded a terrorist campaign is not without merit.

But if he is not innocent, and really is in cahoots with a terrorist group, one must wonder what his motivation would be for propping up the Bush agenda with so many dollars.
