Michele Bachmann Pals Around with Terrorists?

Peter Waldron spent 37 days in prison in Uganda in 2006 after he was charged with terrorism for possessing assault rifles and ammunition. The sentence could have been life in prison, but the charges were dropped after the intervention of the Bush administration.

Which was good news for Michele Bachmann, since Waldron is now a staffer for the presidential hopeful who helped her win the Ames Straw Poll. There are also people who claim that Waldron worked for the CIA.

So, is Bachmann palling around with terrorists?

UPDATE: We will probably never get a straight answer out of Bachmann, who has an uneasy relationship with the truth. For years she used the title “Dr. Michele Bachmann” even though she has no degree — medical or otherwise — that would allow her to use that title. As recently as this week she claimed that she was late to an event because she was attending her annual family reunion, but her own mom said she was a no-show.

    LOL Bill Ayers anyone? The spin is she isn’t actually close drinking buddies with him, never even met the guy, he’s just another underling in the massive political machine.

    I’ve heard that Bachmann was born in Canada, from a really good source.
