A letter to President Barack Obama July 14, 2010.
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
Dear Mr. President:
Earlier today, Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi stood before the United Nations General Assembly and called the U.N. Security Council a “Terror Council.” Qaddafi went on to suggest the State of Israel was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and that the H1N1 flu might be a military or corporate weapon.
Last month, when Scotland freed Abel Baset Megrahi, the only man convicted in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, Qaddafi greeted him with a hero’s welcome. As you know, Megrahi was accompanied back to Libya by Qaddafi’s son, Saif, who was involved in the negotiations for Megrahi’s release.
At the time, you expressed your disappointment over Megrahi’s release and called it a mistake. Attorney General Holder said, “There is simply no justification for releasing this convicted terrorist whose actions took the lives of 270 individuals, including 189 Americans.”
That is why, as a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State-Foreign Operations, I was disturbed by a congressional notification dated September 15, 2009 (enclosed), informing our Committee of the State Department’s intent to provide $200,000 to Saif Qaddafi’s foundation and another $200,000 to an organization run by Muammar Qaddafi’s daughter, Aisha.
Just weeks after the Qaddafi family celebrated the return of a terrorist responsible for the murders of 189 Americans, the U.S. taxpayer should not be asked to reward them with $400,000. For the sake of the victims’ families who have endured so much pain these last few weeks, I ask you to withdraw your Administration’s request.
Mark Steven Kirk
Member of Congress
Interesting to see the reply.

Of course there won't be a reply. Kirk is running against mob banker Giannoulias for Obama's old seat
Interesting letter! Where was the source? I want to repost this on facebook and want to show the original source as well.
You see, when somebody dissects Judaism and marxism, they are immediately labeled "anti-semitic".
Gee, that means "goy" is an endearment term for non-jews…..
For those unaware to the meaning of that talmudic word, just do a search on Google.
There will be no response to this letter. This administration has regularly not responded to letters from other members of congress if the issue is one they choose not to discuss.
from flyover in the USA
I have one of Dillings books in my collection. "The Red Network" Its excellent and well documented. No hint of anti Semitism in it.
Dilling did associate with Father Coughlin-who Beck has heavily criticized and I see that Wikipedia says she was pro Nazi, but i take that with a grain of salt.
I've seen how leftie smear tactics work before you know.
Some US rightists did sympathise with Mussolini etc before WW2, because of his supposed anti communism (he started as a marxist)
Many US leftists loved Mussolini and Hitler because of their corporate socialism.
Was Dillard an angel? – possibly not. Did she make a great contribution towards preserving American freedoms in the turbulent 30s- undoubtedly. I thank her for that.
So should U my friend.
Hey Trevor. Why was your mate Glenn Beck promoting the books of Elizabeth Dilling? She was a prominent American Nazi sympathiser, anti-Communist, traitor and anti-Semite in the 1930s and 1940s.
Beck even said that she “was doing the same things that we are doing now".
