McCain sent his own money to terrorists and supported them through right-wing fringe organizations, through Congressional votes, through lobbying the President, and by visiting them personally at their terror camps. Watch the video and read on.
The Washington Post reported in 1988 that John McCain had sent his own money to the Nicaraguan terrorist organization known as the "contras."
What AP reported yesterday is that now many writers are investigating John McCain's support of a right-wing organization that sent arms to the Nicaraguan terrorists.
The contras targeted and killed both Ben Linder, an American volunteer engineer in Nicaragua, and an American nun Sister Maureen Courtney.
McCain visited the contra camps illegally less than five months after the contras killed Ben Linder of Portland, Oregon, and the contras killed Sister Maureen Courtney just three years after McCain made his friendly visit to the child-raping, civilian-castrating terrorists.
After McCain returned from his friendly visit with the contras, he lobbied the Reagan Administration to boost funding and arms to the contras.
The contra terrorists killed tens of thousands of civilians in order to maintain their control over the rural, farming communities in their region.
Here is newest news on the McCain-Contra Scandal:
McCain linked to private group in Iran-Contra case
By PETE YOST, Associated Press Writer
GOP presidential nominee John McCain has past connections to a private group that supplied aid to guerrillas seeking to overthrow the leftist government of Nicaragua in the Iran-Contra affair.
McCain's ties are facing renewed scrutiny after his campaign criticized Barack Obama for his link to a former radical who engaged in violent acts 40 years ago.
The U.S. Council for World Freedom was part of an international organization linked to former Nazi collaborators and ultra-right-wing death squads in Central America. The group was dedicated to stamping out communism around the globe.
The council's founder, retired Army Maj. Gen. John Singlaub, said McCain became associated with the organization in the early 1980s as McCain was launching his political career in Arizona. Singlaub said McCain was a supporter but not an active member in the group.
McCain of course lied about his participation in the terrorist organization (when you send arms to terorists to help their violent cause, you are a terrorist):
McCain has said he resigned from the council in 1984 and asked in 1986 to have his name removed from the group's letterhead.
"I didn't know whether (the group's activity) was legal or illegal, but I didn't think I wanted to be associated with them," McCain said in a 1986 newspaper interview.
Singlaub does not recall any McCain resignation in 1984 or May 1986. Nor does Joyce Downey, who oversaw the group's day-to-day activities.
"That's a surprise to me," Singlaub said. "This is the first time I've ever heard that. There may have been someone in his office communicating with our office."
"I don't ever remember hearing about his resigning, but I really wasn't worried about that part of our activities, a housekeeping thing," said Singlaub. "If he didn't want to be on the board that's OK. It wasn't as if he had been active participant and we were going to miss his help. He had no active interest. He certainly supported us."
A news article and two documents tie McCain to the council in 1985, a year after he says he resigned. The group's Internal Revenue Service filing in 1985, covering the previous year, lists McCain as a member of the council's advisory board. In October 1985, a States News Service report placed McCain, Rep. Tom Loeffler, R-Texas, and an Arizona congressman at a Washington awards ceremony staged by the council.
The IRS cut off the organization's tax-exempt title because it was sending arms to the contra terrorists, and because the likes of Richard Secord even admitted to this fact: that this organization worked in cooperation with Ollie North and Reagan appointees to send arms to Iranian terrorists and then send arms to Nicaraguan terrorists.
Of course, there is also a great deal of evidence that the empty planes flying back to the United States carried drugs to fuel the drug wars on our streets here at home.
