Watada claims he did not understand a piece of paper that he signed had him going to Iraq. He is now playing the "I'm too stupid to read what I sign" card. What are they teaching people at University of Hawaii, Watada's alma mater.
The list of people that rushed to his defense reads like a Moonbat Who's Who:
1. University of Illinois Law Professor, Frances Boyle
During a visit to Hawaii, urged Native Hawaiians to emulate the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). The speaking tour was co-sponsored by the State of Hawaii Office of Hawaiian Affairs. Boyle has also worked as an attorney for both the PLO and the Chechen rebel "government." What's next professor- asking locals to emulate Al-Qaida?
2. Dennis Halliday
Former United Nations official who last served the UN as United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in 1997 in Iraq—in the midst of the Oil for Food payouts. He quit the UN after one year in Baghdad and began working as a full time campaigner against the UN sanctions on Iraq. I guess it was more lucrative to bash the U.N. after his meal ticket was exposed.
3. Ann Wright
Ex-officer who quit the State Department in March 2003 in protest of the Iraq war. She is now a full time activist who gives interviews to the Maoist Revolution newspaper and coordinated Cindy Sheehan’s media circus in Crawford, Texas. What a great alignment Wright has taken.
In Honolulu, support for Watada was until recently organized largely by the Maoist front group "Not In Our Name," which is controlled by the Honolulu branch of the Revolutionary Communist Party. Watada support rallies are now controlled by Code Pink, a group co-founded by San Francisco activist Medea Benjamin, a former resident of Castro’s Cuba.
Way to go Watada. Your supporters, including Jane Fonda, are a testament to the ridiculousness of your ideology. You have no support from the military and your call for a coup d'etat from your fellow soldiers is laughable at best. Please read the article to read about some more upstanding supporters of Watada. I will be anxiously awaiting his next trial in March.
