Ramsey Clark: An American Traitor

Tuesday, 04 March 2003 12:00 AM

"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them (America), or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court." U.S. Constitution Article III, Section 3.

Ramsey Clark, a former attorney general under President Lyndon Baines Johnson, seems to fit the definition of having committed treasonous behavior in spades. I think we can find the necessary "two witnesses."

The key words are giving "Aid and Comfort" to America's enemies and particularly in the supporting of those who are conducting a war with us. You be the judge.

Mohammad Daoud al-Owhali, a student of Osama bin Laden, guided a truck packed with explosives into the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya in 1998. He was also seen throwing grenades at the guards, before he fled. The bomb-laden truck killed 213 and injured scores of others.

American Embassies are considered American soil and attacking our embassy is an Act of War. The same al-Owhali was implicated in the bombings at Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which killed 224 and critically injured 4,500.

Fortunately, al-Owhali was finally caught and brought back to justice in the United States. Only one attorney would volunteer to handle this brutal murderer and sworn enemy of the United States: Ramsey Clark. Clark soon began to use the courtroom as a bully pulpit to rail against U.S. policies around the world.

For decades, this icon of the American Left has vilified America at every turn while siding with and giving Aid and Comfort to nearly every single one of America's sworn enemies from North Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Libya and Iraq, to name a few.

Former Attorney General Clark, in his capacity as founder and head of International Action Center (a major organizing component of the current anti-war A.N.S.W.E.R.), which was founded both by Clark and the leaders of the Workers World Party several years ago, produced a document called an "Appeal To Troops."

Clark urged insurrection and mutiny of our soldiers while a war was raging in Europe with our troops. He wrote:

Hundreds of thousands? Holy smoke! And ne'er a peep from anyone in the mainstream media. Whad'ya know?

Isn't inciting an insurrection during wartime a traitorous behavior? A traitor, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, 4th Edition, is "... One who betrays one's country, a cause, or a trust, especially one who commits treason."

I think we've met the test of betrayal that far exceeds a constitutionally permissible peaceful protest. Ramsey has been busy. He's a longtime pal and on a first-name basis of nearly every ruthless thug and enemy of America from Libya's Qadaffi to former Yugoslavia's brutal mass murderer Slobodan Milosovic.

It seems that in order to be a friend of Ramsey one must hate and wish to destroy America. Or as the Arab adage goes, the "enemy of my enemy is my friend."

In fact, it was due to Ramsey's close association with another world mass murderer, Saddam Hussein, that enabled news anchor Dan Rather to get his big puff-piece interview late last month with Saddam. These machinations have provided simultaneous wartime propaganda and the aiding and abetting of the enemy.

Today, as we verge on the brink of war with Iraq, we find that Saddam's pen pal Ramsey Clark wrote a letter to Kofi Annan, secretary general of the U.N., just last month, accusing America of war crimes.

Keep in mind that he's writing to the U.N. asking for them to take a stand on moral leadership. This is the same U.N. that recently put Libya, a state sponsor of terrorism, and Sudan, a slave state, on its "Human Rights" committee. Furthermore, Syria, which is on the State Department's watch list of terrorist states, now sits on the Security Council.

His letter, writing about Operation Desert Storm, read in part:

How did someone, who was once held the reigns of power of the entire law enforcement branch of the United States as its attorney general, become such a wacko, America-hating left winger spinning in the solar system's outer political orbit?

Ramsey came from a powerful family. His own father, Tom Clark, was not only a former attorney general under Truman, but a U.S. Supreme Court justice as well.

Originally, Attorney General Ramsey Clark was a tough-as-nails prosecutor. He directed FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to conduct the notorious COINTELPRO program that proactively infiltrated radical groups. The program, considered politically incorrect now, probably saved thousands of lives by infiltrating criminal gangs.

Then in 1968, prior to ascending to the throne as the darling of America's left, Attorney General Clark even prosecuted the then-reigning king of the left, Dr. Benjamin Spock, for advocating, of all things, draft resistance!

How the world turns! And Dr. Spock, combined with Hanoi Jane Fonda, did only a fraction of the outrageous behavior of Ramsey Clark.

In June 1980, with America transfixed trying to rescue Americans during the Iran hostage crisis, Clark cheerfully participated in a forum called "Crimes of America" - in Tehran! He sought out nearly every murderous American-hating, tin-pot dictator to commiserate with that he could find. After the U.S. bombing of Libya in 1986, he hung out with and gave Aid and Comfort to Col. Moammar Qadaffi in Tripoli.

Clark, who was concerned about America dropping bombs on Iraq's synagogues (according to the letter he penned to the U.N.), had no qualms defending PLO leaders in the suit brought by the family of Leon Klinghoffer. You may remember Klinghoffer as the savagely murdered, wheelchair-bound passenger who was thrown overboard on the PLO-hijacked ocean liner the Achille Lauro in 1986.

Clark must have been doing everything possible to undermine America; either that or he was just racing to rack up frequent-flier miles. No other explanation satisfies.

This same alleged defender of Iraqi synagogues was later representing Karl Linnas, an ex-Nazi concentration camp guard, charged with the slaughter of some 12,000 Jews, who was being deported from the U.S. back to his native Estonia. Clark wondered "why now?" and said in Linnas' defense, "40 years after some god-awful crime they're alleged to have committed."

Earlier, Ramsey Clark had flown to Hanoi to offer comfort to the communist leaders while our POWs were still being tortured and murdered. He urged them to fight on. He later came back and told our own Congress that the POWs were well exercised and fed. Tell that to former prisoner of war Sen. McCain and his MIA buddies.

In 1990, while U.S. bombs were falling in Iraq, Clark flew to meet and greet Saddam our wartime enemy in Basra, Iraq's southern port. Clark was playing footsies with Saddam while our soldiers were in harm's way.

In 1993, al-Qaeda's first attack on our soil occurred when they bombed the World Trade Center in 1993. Remember that one? Scores were killed and thousands were injured in that failed attempt to take down the twin towers.

The perpetrators were found, and Ramsey Clark represented the bombers, a group that included the blind cleric Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman. He unsuccessfully argued during the trial that the suspects' race was the reason that they were being tried. Can we please find this man a rubber room somewhere so he won't be a danger to himself or the rest of the country?

The suspects were all found guilty and are now serving time. Ramsey still represents Sheik Rahman.

Just as a company's "corporate veil" can be pierced and a company's executives can be found personally and criminally liable for wrongdoing, can we not also pierce the even thinner veil of a "lawyer's immunity" from prosecution, particularly once it crosses the line from reasonable criminal defense to blatant conspiracy to help bring down America?

In October 1999, Clark met with and praised Yugoslav Slobodan Milosovic in Belgrade during the NATO campaign that included American combatants. Milosovic was already charged with "crimes against humanity" at the time. But Clark praised him as "brave, objective and moral." He told his host: "It will be a great struggle, but a glorious victory. You can be victorious."

In fact, Milosovic did have a degree of success. He created millions of homeless refugees from Kosovo, left scores of mass graves later to be dug up by NATO, killed tens of thousands of his own people and conducted the massacre of Srebrenica and the siege of Sarajevo. This was all going on with American troops nearly in earshot, and for Clark that was what he meant by "victorious" - for America's enemy, that is.

I have to hand it to Ramsey. After decades of undermining America's resolve, giving Aid and Comfort to each and everyone of America's enemies, he has failed to be brought up on charges.

He reminds me of the spoiled rich kid that does something intentionally wrong right in front of his own parents just so he can finally elicit a punishment. He's crying out to be disciplined. "Hit me; I know I'm bad." But for whatever reason, no sitting attorney general has ever brought charges against this man who embodies the very dictionary definition of a traitor.

To add insult to injury, a bit of outrageousness and a whole lot of irony, Clark has brought charges against President Bush this past January. He has drawn up his own Articles of Impeachment. Gag.

Ramsey Clark is obviously crying out for help. Will someone please arrest him, once and for all? It should be done not for America's sake, but for Ramsey's own sake. Let's respect this man's innermost wishes before we all go insane.
