Congressional Dems. Invite Spokesman for Designated Terror Group to Brief them on "Drone Strikes"

Luckily the guy was denied a visa, but doesn't the fact that Congressional Democrats invited a guy who is a spokesman for an al Qaeda-like group say volumes about them?

Then again, who would no more about drone strikes than al Qaeda?

Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office.

Ahmady, who also serves as a top official in an al Qaeda-linked Yemeni political party, did not attend because of visa issues. The State Department said it could not comment on visa matters.

Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karama’s founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a terrorist and al Qaeda supporter by the U.S. Treasury Department in December, along with the group’s Yemen representative Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani. Al Karama’s legal director, Rachid Mesli, is currently wanted for terrorism charges in Algeria.

The Democratic Congresscritters when asked why they invited a guy who works for a designated terrorist organization to come tesitfy on Capital Hill, plead ignorance. Which if you think about it kind of sums their existence up quite nicely.
