Attention Attorneys: Help Me Get David Horowitz Indicted
My first post as a member of HorowitzWatch was one that Horowitz was a hypocrite for wishing that American Taliban member John Walker Lindh be executed. I pointed out that Horowitz himself was a self-admitted traitor who violated the Espionage Act. [Note: the original HorowitzWatch article is not accessible but here's a similar article from SDO).
I knew my constant harping got under Horowitz's skin. Finally, about a year ago, he asked me not to bring it up anymore. I agreed out of principle--it was a long time ago, etc.
The truce is over. Actually, it was over when I read that Horowitz invited the head Swift Boat Liar John O'Neill to speak before his Wednesday Morning Club in September.
After reading the subtitle of Horowitz's paean to the Swift Boat Liars ("The traitor has been vanquished and the Vietnam war is now over for those who fought it"), I have decided to declare war on David. I say we should smoke his lame ass.
In multiple writings (the aforementioned article and the books Radical Son and Destructive Generation) Horowitz admitted to violating the Espionage Act. There is no statute of limitations on violations of the Espionage Act. Could some thoughtful attorneys out there help to bring an indictment against Horowitz?
2. George W. Bush invited Horowitz to his Crawford prop ranch for political advice back in 2002. If Horowitz is indicted (or if there is publicity about a possible indictment), it could lead to some bad publicity for Bush.
3. It would be fun.
Quick Swift Boat Liar Note: Tonight on MSNBC's Scarborough Country, Scarborough and other panelists such as Pat Buchanan were saying that the Swift Boat Liars were the key to the election and portrayed John O'Neill as a hero. I got very angry until I realized that I was about the only person watching it.
