Holy Land Foundation: Guilty on All 108 Counts

Another victory in the War on Terrorism (Holy Land Foundation defendants guilty on all counts, Denton Record-Chronicle)
A jury on Monday determined that the Holy Land Foundation and five men who worked with the Muslim charity were guilty of three dozen counts related to the illegal funneling of at least $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

The unanimous verdicts are a complete victory for the government, which streamlined its case after a mistrial last year, and worked hard to carefully educate jurors on the complex evidence presented in the massive case. Guilty verdicts were read on 108 separate charges.

The prosecution victory is also a major one for the administration of President George Bush, whose efforts at fighting terrorism financing in court have been troubled, even though the flow of funds seems to be effectively shut down.

Question: Why is any legal matter in this war on Islamofascism either a victory for or a defeat for President Bush? It wasn't Bush who was attacked. America as a whole was attacked on 9/11/01 by Muslim terrorists. President Bush has only done his constitutional duty to protect and defend this nation and it's citizens, no thanks to most of the elected Democrat leadership and their activists as well as the media.

It is a victory for America.
