Security is one thing, campaign contributions quite another

by Ken Houghton

Via my local community forum comes this piece fromWonkette:
GOP moneybag Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari was indicted Friday for trying to send $152,000 to terror-training camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Alishtari is a member of the White House Business Advisory Committee and a “U.S. National Republican Senate Inner Circle Member for Life.” He’s aDoD/Homeland Security contractor, obviously, and he claims to be best buddies with Dick Cheney!

The CBS version of this story downplays his affiliation with the Republican Party and the Administration.

I haven't seen a NYT version yet, but it's likely I just missed it, since he is from Westchester and the indictment was three days ago. (UPDATE: The Times has the AP feed.)
