Training terrorists

A front page story in the San Francisco Chronicle by Matthew Kalman recalls that in the past, Palestinian security personnel trained by the CIA to combat anti-Israeli terrorism have in fact used that training to attack Israelis.

Kalman points out that "Such training courses, which were suspended with the outbreak of the Palestinian uprising in September 2000, will be an integral part of Washington's aid package for the new government of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas."
