Excerpt:

It would be inconceivable for Barack Obama to appoint a man who had praised the Ku Klux Klan to a commission discussing race relations; what he has actually done, however, is all too predictable. Obama has appointed a man who has praised Hamas and Hizballah, and blamed Israel for 9/11, to be the United States' representative at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM).

The Obama State Department is sending Salam al-Marayati, founder and executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), to the OSCE conference. The foremost problem with this appointment is that al-Marayati was one of the first 9/11 truthers out of the box, ready with an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory on the very day of the attacks. On September 11, 2001, al-Marayati appeared on a radio show in Los Angeles to discuss the jihad attacks in New York and Washington, and said: "If we're going to look at suspects, we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies."
