    Bush's terrorist friend

    This time it's the former Liberian president, Charles Taylor. From the Washington Post: A Protected Friend of Terrorism

    Part of the reason may be Taylor's long association with U.S. intelligence services. During much of the 1990s, Taylor was close to Moammar Gaddafi, the main financier of Taylor's wars. Taylor regularly reported on his meetings to U.S. intelligence agencies and was paid for the information. While the use of informants is necessary, protecting Taylor in the face of unspeakable atrocities just because of that historical relationship should not be tolerated.

    To call him "Bush's friend" is idiotic.

    "Part of the reason may be Taylor's long association with U.S. intelligence services. During much of the 1990s, Taylor was close to Moammar Gaddafi, the main financier of Taylor's wars. Taylor regularly reported on his meetings to U.S. intelligence agencies and was paid for the information."

    Bush wasn't President in the 90s, more's the pity.

    I totally agree Taylor needs to be tried for his crimes, you might ask Jesse Jackson about him too, they were buddies it seems.

    Anonymous, you say "mores the pity", I take it if it were upto you the current bunch of criminals, and conmen and women would have been onto their 3rd or fourth adventure overseas by now?

    And it is well known, as djeb has stated that those in positions of power in Britain and the US ignore some terrible abuses.
