New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is urging Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Attorney General John Ashcroft to prosecute Palestinian terrorist Abu Abbas, the notorious mastermind of the 1985 Achille Lauro hijacking who was given a defacto exemption from prosecution by her husband because of the Oslo Peace accords.

"newsmax"...sigh.
Well, here's the appalling Rubin for the State Dept. 3 years ago: "the United States strongly believes that Abu Abbas should be punished for the crimes committed aboard the Achille Lauro in 1985. Abbas was tried in absentia in Italy in 1986, found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. There are no charges pending against Abu Abbas in the United States. The statute of limitations has long since run out."

And the Oslo accords offered "amnesty"- not a de facto exemption (whatever that might be).
And since the accords, Abbas has been known to have visited Israel -why not accuse them of "harbouring terrorists"?
Although there was some legal US-gibberish in 1996 about the statute of limitation not having run out, as Abbas was a "fugitive from justice", this is not realistic.
From whose justice? The Italians have pressed no case

Merely the unspeakable Hills hustling the Jewish vote: the ADL strikes again.
