Let's hope Fox News runs with this and pressures the other networks to pick it up as well!

WASHINGTON - While President Clinton was trying to broker an elusive peace between Israelis and Palestinians, the FBI was secretly funneling money to suspected Hamas figures to see if the militant group would use it for terrorist attacks, according to interviews and court documents.

If that ain't the stupidest thing I've ever heard of.

The counterterrorism operation in 1998 and 1999 was run out of the FBI's Phoenix office in cooperation with Israeli intelligence and was approved by Attorney General Janet Reno, FBI officials told The Associated Press.

I guess it wasn't enough for Janet Reno to be responsible for the deaths of Branch Davidian children, she had to get the blood of some Israelis on her shaky-assed hands as well. If this doesn't EPITOMIZE the foreign policy IDIOCY of the Clinton Administration, I don't know what does...

I would like to take a moment to ask for donations.

It should be clear to all conservatives by now that the left intends to demonize us. They don't just disagree with us, they hate us. And worse, they want to get other people to hate us.

Places like Free Republic drive the left batty.

Please donate. Thanks for your consideration.

So I presume the press will now demand an investigation into who leaked Harry Ellen's name?

One would think he has far more to fear for his safety now then Plame does...

Ellen testified the operation ended abruptly in early 1999 when he and Williams had a series of disagreements over the operation, disputes that began when Ellen angered the FBI by having an affair with a Chinese woman suspected of espionage.

Look at this.......and thanks for the heads up in finding this story.

Ellen testified that Williams told him he hoped the transfer would lead to more money exchanges through terror groups but Ellen refused to earmark money for terrorism. He testified he later learned another FBI operative had offered Hamas and Palestinian figures larger amounts for terrorist attacks

Unfreaking real!!

I wish they would funnel some money to me to see if I will use it to pay bills.

At least they didn't funnel it to Charles Manson to see if it would commit more mass murder. Which is different, how?

I see we are now paying former Iraqi soldiers $40 per month to keep them from rioting. How many of them are in the guerilla ambushes made on our troops? It is hard to keep money away from terrorists, especially when we have officials with such wasteful policies.

Iam trying to figure out the ...sickening... part.

Some how I think that the sickening part is after the clinton adm tracked to $'s they did nothing about it.

I have to question this article and its timing. AP has never been a friend of the right and sings the lefties songs verbatum.

Wondering how many folks they "outed" with this article and what was their true motivation? Truth and justice, somehow I don't think so. Your throughts..

This is the gem hidden in the rough....

Ellen's FBI handler in the late 1990s was Kenneth Williams, an agent who later became famous for writing a pre-Sept. 11 memo to FBI headquarters warning there were Arab pilots training at U.S. flight schools. The warning went unheeded.

LOL.......That's akin to giving them rifles to see they would use them to shoot Jews.

Give Yasser 30 million and maybe he gives back 5 million to the ones who arrange tax donations on the side. The US Government is 4 Trillion more in the red after Carter's peace process. Who knows.....where the money goes.....

Arafat is featured in Forbes's special annual issue on the world's top 500 billionaires. Arafat placed No. 6 on a list of world leaders in the ''kings, queens, and despots''

Clinton's national security adviser, Sandy Berger, said in an interview that the White House wasn't informed of the FBI activities. "We were not aware of any such operation," Berger said

Yes you were Sandy,we'll bet the farm you were. Though I understand Louis Freeh and Billy Jeff rarely talked, I sure would like someone to subpoena Mr. Freeh or force him to write a book on his Clinton years at the FBI. That would be special.

It may be totally unrelated to Wilson. Just a few minutes ago surfaced an article about the Clinton's pro-Hitler anti-semitism, per their bodyguard in Arkansas.
