Bush Is On A Roll

George Bush has made a lot of mistakes lately- aming them the Dubai Ports Deal and the Immigration "Gold Card". But he's made another one which most likely won't get quite so much attention.

Despite his continued War on Terror Bush is allowing representatives of a still-armed and still-active terrorist organisation to be invited into the White House for this year's St. Patrick's Day celebrations. The delegation from Sinn Fein/IRA are unlikely to actually meet the President, but they will be there- along with members of the other main political players from Northern Ireland. They were not invited last year because of the failure of the devolved government (IRA spying, an activity the IMC has stated is still continuing) and the Northern Ireland Bank Robbery (and the IRA continues to be involved in organised crime here- again, as stated by the IMC).

Last year Bush seemed to get it- Sinn Fein/IRA were not invited but the sisters of a man murdered in a nationalist bar were. This year, it seems, Bush is okay with having terrorists in the White House.

So much for being against terrorism.
