Ten years after the terrorist clemencies: Hillary’s hypocrisy continues

From the diaries by Erick

Hillary Clinton has outdone her hypocritical self once again.

She correctly stated that terrorist Abdel Bassett al Megrahi should serve his sentence to completion, to quote her State Department which she is clearly in charge, “Our interest is in justice and….the commitment to the families.” He had a fair trial. He was convicted He’s serving his time. And we think he should stay in jail.” I could not agree more.

However, when political gain was at stake she did not see it that way.

Ironically ten years ago this week, when it was politically expedient for her senate run, the Clintons, with an assist from Eric Holder granted clemency to 16 equally remorse less FALN terrorists who also were convicted after fair trials.

Obviously Mrs. Clinton still believes the citizenry do not see through her cynical ‘do as I say, not as I do’ politics.

Some of us however are paying attention.

Joseph F. Connor

Mr. Connor’s father, Frank, 33 was killed by the FALN in the 1975 Fraunces Tavern bombing. Joe has written several OP Eds for The Post on other publications and testified this year before the Senate Judiciary Committee against Eric Holder’s AG nomination.
