WND Wavers on Snowden, Definitely Hates Glenn Greenwald
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily doesn't quite know what to think about Edward Snowden's revelations on NSA surveillance -- its commentary page swings from Molotov Mitchell's "Ed Snowden: true patriot" to Barry Farber's "Ed Snowden: A sleazebag on a good day."

WND does apparently agree, however, that Glenn Greenwald, the reporter who broke Snowden's revelations, is a horrible person. Aaron Klein plays his usual guilt-by-association game in a June 19 article, claiming that Greenwald "founded a progressive activist coalition that encompasses a who’s who of the George Soros-funded radical left." And, of course, it wouldn't be a true Aaron Klein guilt-by-association special if he couldn't link Greenwald to Obama:

Greenwald also served on a conference panel titled “Revolution and imperialism in the Middle East” with Chicago based pro-Palestine activist Ali Abunimah.

Greenwald and Abinimah teamed up to defend the 2010 flotilla attempting to end Israel’s naval blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Abunimah was part of the Free Gaza Movement that helped to organize the flotilla.

Abunimah’s website, Electronic Intifada, routinely praises Greenwald’s activism.

WND broke the story that Obama spoke at fundraisers in the 1990s for Palestinians living in what the United Nations terms refugee camps.

Abunimah recalled introducing Obama at one such event, a 1999 fundraiser for the Deheisha Palestinian camp in the West Bank.

Abunimah previously described meeting with Obama at a fundraiser at the home of Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, reportedly a former PLO activist.

It was WND that first exposed Obama’s long relationship with Khalidi.

Ah, that's the Aaron Klein we know and love!
