The utter hypocrisy of the so-called 'war on terror' is enough to make a person physically ill these days.

Zeinab Taleb-Jedi, as Online Journal contributing writer Mickey Z describes her, is a "95-pound, 51-year-old homeless Iranian widow with severe digestive problems...Armed only with a tattered coffee cup, a shopping cart overflowing with newspapers, and a name that will make Hollywood drool."

Jedi, who currently lives in a Manhattan homeless shelter, has recently been indicted on federal charges for allegedly "providing material support" to the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), an officially designated terrorist organization.

This homeless (and apparently harmless) woman is currently the subject of a highly publicized FBI terrorist investigation, yet, while she faces a sentence of 15 years in prison for allegedly supporting the MEK, several influential Washington figures openly support the MEK without facing any consequences whatsoever.

In fact, according to reports from earlier this year, the Bush Administration has been using the MEK to orchestrate attacks and collect intelligence inside Iran.

Just this March, according to U.S. officials who spoke to the reputable online publication Raw Story, U.S.-sponsored MEK militants attacked and killed 22 Iranian officials in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan. These operatives were reportedly being "run" by the Pentagon under the instructions of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney.

It appears, however, that the Bush Administration is allowed to get away with murder (literally) while federal resources are used to prosecute a homeless widow from New York City who is allegedly affiliated with the White House's weapon.
