Al Gore - SHUT UP.
Al Gore condemned the U.S. treatment of Arabs after the 9/11 attacks Sunday while speaking to a mostly Saudi audience at the Jiddah Economic Forum in Saudi Arabia. Gore said that Arabs in the U.S. had been, "indiscriminately rounded up, often on minor charges of overstaying a visa or not having a green card in proper order, and held in conditions that were just unforgivable."
What possible good can come from this statement? For a political leader (I use the term loosely here) to stand before Arabs and make charges like this - just adds fuel to the fire we're fighting with Islam. Many of the 9/11 hijackers were here using expired visas. Almost all the hijackers were Saudis.
This statement has been given alot of play on the networks. It's been shown around the world. It's been translated into Arabic and printed in papers.
We have men & women in uniform in harms way, and he blasts his own countries policies.
Free speech? How about treason. Here's the definition:
1, Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
2, A betrayal of trust or confidence.
Let's put Al in a straight jacket, and ship his ass out. I thought John Kerry & Ted Kennedy were bad. Al no longer belongs here.
