Terrorist organization harboring
More concern over Iraq: it was bad enough to level sanctions on the country while still letting Saddam get rich, but then the U.S. used the pretense that he was harboring al-Qaeda to start an unjust and disastrous war in Iraq
I think this also refers to how certain terrorists are given a free pass by the US who in return get information or an alliance. One man’s terrorist is often another man’s freedom fighter e.g. the Contras, the P.L.O., the founders of Israel etc.
