In case you had any doubts

about Arafat's moral character (such doubts are likely limited amongst these readers, as opposed to the employees of the Carter Center), then click on the link above and find out exactly how much money Arafat's wife is receiving from the PA.

I'd also like to point out that the US gave massive amounts of money to the Palestines; if memory serves me correctly, I believe it is somewhere in the top three recipients of foreign aid (along with Israel and Egypt, though I'm not sure of the ordering). Some senator ought to start making some serious political hay out of this matter, since it appears that this money obviously did not benefit the intended parties - the Palestinians. Why should taxpayers have to pay for this? And why don't we hold the new government of the PA to more exacting standards than we apparently did for Arafat's regime, and extract promises about more transparant accounting before we send any more US dollars their way?

Meanwhile, the worthless Jimmy Carter is busy singing the praises of Arafat. Both men are Nobel Peace prize winners and fittingly, both are worthless when it comes to international politics - one intentionally corrupt and one too dumb to realize when he is being corrupted (see: North Korea, 1994).

I'll comment on the Jordan stuff later tonight - I did read that excerpt and he does come across poorly.

Bo, also see the Clarett post below, with an update. Looks like OSU is in it balls-deep.

And $22 million a year? How selfless of them.
