I find none of this surprising. Do any of you? But there are some things being played up by the media, and other things being played down. I’m focusing on the played down.

Below I’ve highlighted “charities”, “political parties”, and “allies” listed as “al Qaeda associated forces” according to a WikiLeaks document. The bracketed and italicized comments are my own.

You’ll notice that our “allies” Pakistan and Yemen are on the list. Several state sponsored “charities” also appear, like those run by our “friends” in Qatar and Saudi Arabia. And the “not-a-terrorist-group”, the Muslim Brotherhood, also make the cut.
