A 30-Year Old Arafat Murder

In 1973 in Khartoum, Sudan, U.S. Ambassador Cleo Noel Jr. and George Curtis Moore, a U.S. diplomat were kidnapped and brutally murdered by an organization headed by Yasser Arafat. It took Scott W. Johnson a while, but now his research has demonstrated that the operation had the direct approval of Arafat, and that the U.S. State Dept. has sidestepped the issue and has never attempted to bring Arafat to justice for this multiple murder.

It's obviously no news flash that Arafat is and always has been a thug, a terrorist and a murderer. And the Noel story isn't "news" either. But at least the Freedom of Information Act can occasionally expose government lies and distortions that used to go unchallenged. Kudos to Johnson for his perseverance. Interesting article.

Make sure you still have something worth wishing for.
