Jack Abramoff: Terrorist?

Maybe not, but it sure seems like Abramoff's got some terrorist ties:

Today we spend the hour with legendary South African editor and reporter, Allister Sparks on wiretapping and torture. He knew it well in apartheid South Africa. He talks about what it means for the U.S. today. And what does Jack Abramoff have to do with South Africa? In the 1980s, he was head of the pro-apartheid International Freedom Foundation in Washington. His counterpart in South Africa: Craig Williamson. Sparks sat on the Truth and Reconciliation hearings next to the man who lost his wife and daughter to a letter bomb that Williamson was involved in sending.

This Allister Sparks dude seems like the real deal. Here's an article on him as guest visiting professor at UNC.
