After watching tonight's Debate,
I decided to search the net to find out a little info on Mrs. Bachmann.

This little information caught my eye.


Washington, Dec 12 - On Dec. 10, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) wrote President Obama prior to his meeting in Washington with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. She asked the President to urge the Iraqi Prime Minister not to close Camp Ashraf on Dec. 31 out of her concern for its current residents who oppose Iran. “Located in Iraq, Camp Ashraf is the home to 3,400 members of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), an entity that opposes the current regime in Iran and promotes its replacement with a democratic system of government,” Bachmann wrote in the letter. “This opposition to the status quo in Iran places the residents of Camp Ashraf in constant danger. With growing Iranian influence in Iraq, Mr. Maliki has made it clear that he has no interest in protecting these residents.”


Bachmann Seeks Camp Ashraf to Stay Open in Letter to President

Searching known terrorist organizations,I was surprised to see the very organization she endorses,Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK),on the Governments official list of terrorist organizations.


Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group (GICM) Mujahadin-e Khalq Organization (MEK) National Liberation Army (ELN) Palestine Liberation Front – Abu Abbas Faction (PLF) Palestine Islamic Jihad – Shaqaqi Faction (PIJ)


Chapter 6. Foreign Terrorist Organizations


Am I reading this right? Thoughts?

That deserves a Beezzer "Facepalm" Award!

I would suggest to Mrs Bachmann, next time she hires an advisor, don't go with the one with the cute butt,

Yeah, but in her defense, she was probably concerned with the encroachment of Iranian forces after we leave. She just chose a poor example.

She can't be THAT dumb can she?

well,

maybe she is narrowing the field.

self destruction works wonders.

Thats a pretty big blunder beez.................That is "EPIC" Face palm.

I am surprised no one has called her out on it. Then again,Maybe they want her voters,when she decides to quit,and anyone that does so,WONT be getting the endorsement from her,thats for sure.

Bachmann is the GOP version of Biden.

Gotta keep her around just to make the others look smarter.

Doesn't that by definition mean that she is a material supporter of a terrorist organization and can be indefinately detained?

Or does that only apply to terrorist groups we don't agree with?

I am afraid she is.

She will not be the first Female President,thats for sure.

I would have loved to see Ron Paul throw this out ,LIVE ,at the debate,when she spoke about Iran.

I didn't realize she was that clueless.

Madam President! Don't sign this legislation (dangles key chain) look! Play with this!

The fact the MEK are on a State Department terrorist list doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things.
It seems to be widely known that the US and Israel have been funding, arming and training them as a proxy force for use against Iranian targets for quite some time.

See, it's NOT terrorism when we, or our proxies, assassinate people or blow things up, and anyone who says so is a dirty anti-semite commie liberal... so there!


All Michele has done is acknowledge America's use of a proxy force. Embarrassing yes, and no doubt she'll get a verbal smack on the legs for pointing it out.... or maybe not.

Why does she still insist upon speaking and trying to be relevant? This is a mystery to me.

Shes relevant because she has supporters that have not seen her faults,and they are easily swayed with her values she has portrayed as "American".MHO

Well,this information ranks of serial hypocrisy regardless. On one hand she blasts Ron Paul on his views of Iran,on the other she endorses terrorists.

You know what they say: telegraph, telephone, or tell a ... Ah, nevamind!


I can sort of guess what she was getting at, but the fact is it should never have been gotten at at all. Not presidential material. A president needs to be able to think a thought through before opening their mouth on the thought. As it is, she didn't expound on the thought very well, and it should never have been expounded upon to begin with.

You can separate "good" guerrillas from "bad" guerrillas, but by slapping a label of "terrorist" on a group, you forfeit the ability to make that distinction. There ain't no such critter as a "good": terrorist, simply because of their modus operandii.

It's a long, involved subject with a lot of shades of gray, but once an outfit is officially labeled a terrorist organization by your own bosses, they can't be rehabilitated into a "good" group. To attempt to do so is political suicide, as we see here.

How can she speak at all, around that foot in her mouth?

MKO is a terrorist group which it's leaders just care about getting to power by any mean necessary.

They have done much terrorist bombings and invasions , they were the ones who were consulting and helping Saddam to invade Iran.

In return Saddam let them invade Iran after cease-fire , but they failed to take over Iran.

Search Mersad مرصاد in google and you will find more about them.
