BREAKING: Important Story – McCain Team tied to Saddam

This is an important piece of investigative reporting done by Huffington Post’s Murray Waas:

William Timmons, the Washington lobbyist who John McCain has named to head his presidential transition team, aided an influence effort on behalf of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to ease international sanctions against his regime.

It’s a very long and detailed discussion about supporting a terrorist and the potential for economic gain by facilitating eliminating some sanctions against the ex-Iraqi leader.  The difference between Bill Ayers and Saddam Huessein is significant.  First, Timmon’s team supported reducing sanctions to an international terrorist who was still active internationally, and more importantly, within Iraq killing innocent people.  Second, Timmon’s and his associates had an illegal arrangement.  Third, there was a financial gain for success. Fourth, he had no respect around the World.   McCain wasn’t responsible, but if we are talking associations, then this is should be significant.  McCain’s team knew about these connections and warned him that assigning Timmons was not a good idea.  Again, it goest to his current judgement.
