US gave $, airtime to anti-semitic terrorists

Does nobody in the Bush Administration know how to do anything right? Apparently not:
Al Hurra television, the U.S. government's $63 million-a-year effort at public diplomacy broadcasting in the Middle East, is run by executives and officials who cannot speak Arabic, according to a senior official who oversees the program.

That might explain why critics say the service has recently been caught broadcasting terrorist messages, including an hour-long tirade on the importance of anti-Jewish violence, among other questionable pieces.
"Questionable practices." I'd say.
