Useful Idiots, Free Travel

Fire of Liberty

Here's two interesting articles, here and here, which notes that the Justice Department has arranged a Michigan man by the name of Muthanna Al-Hanooti for receiving 2 million barrels of oil(A hearty sum of cash) from Saddam's regime to arrange a junket for some anti-war Congressmen to visit Iraq and make the case against attacking. Now while I'm sure that the Congressmen are truly committed liberals and felt that this gesture was the best thing to do(in their mind) at the time, their actions just go to show you that all dictators since the days of Lenin have a readily available stock of "useful idiots" in the Western world to keep their regime going. Unfortunately, this set of "useful idiots" failed in preserving this regime.
