Delahunt Encourages Al Qaeda to Kill American Official
William Delahunt (D-Mass) is once again disgracing his position by wishing publicly that the Cheney chief of staff, David Addington be identified then killed by al Qaeda. You may remember Delahunt as the long time supporter of Hugo Chavez, making it clear where his loyalties rest.
One of the most curious exchanges in today’s testy hearing in the House Judiciary Committee was this exchange between Rep. Wiliam Delanhunt (D-Mass.) and David Addington, chief of staff to Vice President Cheney.
Addington had acknowledged earlier in the hearing that he took part in discussions with CIA lawyers over the agency’s interrogation policies. Delahunt tried to find out what Addington knew about the use of waterboarding on suspected Al Qaeda terrorists, or more specifically, whether Addington knew it was approved as an interrogation technique.
Addington told Delahunt he couldn’t discuss specific techniques being used, or even discussed for use, by CIA agents because terrorists may be watching his appearance and would gain insight into what U.S. intelligence agents are up to.
“You kind of communicate with Al Qaeda if you do. I can’t talk to you because Al Qaeda may watch C-SPAN,” Addington said.
Delahunt responded: “I’m sure they are watching. I’m glad they finally have a chance to see you, Mr. Addington, given your penchant for being unobtrusive.”
Update – Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) wasn’t pleased with Delahunt’s suggestion that al Qaeda is happy to get a look at Addington.
“With Rep. Bill Delahunt’s remarks inciting [al Qaeda] to violence, David Addington and his family will need protection until the War on Terror is over,” King said in a statement. “I wonder if Bill Delahunt is ready to guard Mr. Addington’s home and family.”
What the traitorous William Delahunt (D-Mass) doesn’t realize is that he is also a target of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Only a fool like Delahunt would believe that he is immune to the same fate he wishes upon Mr. Addington. Arrogance and his perceived self-importance have blinded him to the cold reality of war and the eventual fate of the traitor.
