Alleged terrorist financier was donor to Republican Party

Reasons to roll your eyes:

Tuesday, February 20, 2007 A man charged with trying to help terrorists in Afghanistan has donated some $15,000 (€11,410) to the campaign committee of Republicans in the House of Representatives, and a resume in his name indicates various other links to the party.

Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari pleaded not guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in New York City to charges that include terror financing, material support of terrorism and money laundering.

From April 2002 until August 2004, the man, also known as "Michael Mixon," gave donations ranging from $500 (€380) to $5,000 (€3,805) to the National Republican Congressional Committee, according to Federal Election Commission reports and two campaign donor tracking Web sites, and

A resume listed in his name and posted on an MSN group Web site on Jan. 8, 2007, identifies him as being an "industrialist and philanthropist" and references previous connections to the Republican Party.

And further reasons to fret.

New film of JFK moments before assassination

A film of President Kennedy in Dallas moments before he was assassinated has come to light. But it seems unlikely to shed much light on the unending speculation as to who shot him.
