AP: McCain was on board of group linked to former Nazi collaborators

In all fairness, who hasn’t been on the board of directors of an organization with ties to Nazi sympathizers? McCain and Palin simply have too many ties to extremists and anti-Semites.

More from Sam Stein at Huffing Post:

The USCWF was founded in Phoenix, Arizona in November 1981 as an offshoot of the World Anti-Communist League. The group was, from the onset, saddled with the disreputable reputation of its parent group. The WACL had ties to ultra-right figures and Latin American death squads. Roger Pearson, the chairman of the WACL, was expelled from the group in 1980 under allegations that he was a member of a neo-Nazi organization.

The U.S. Council of World Freedom claimed to be cleansed of these elements. The group’s director, retired Major General John Singlaub, said he had purged some of the more “kooky” members, including a Mexican chapter that “blamed everything on the Jews,” and “even accused Pope John Paul of being a Jew.”
