More sniper schools needed

Once-powerful US lobbyist Jack Abramoff is likely to spill the beans on the inherent corruption within the Washington power elite. The Republicans, and some Democrats, are in for a rough year. What kind of man is Abramoff? Washington Post journalist Susan Schmidt has a few ideas:

“We do know he spent millions of dollars on his two restaurants, that he bankrolled a religious academy that educated his children, that he was sending money to settlers on the West Bank for a sniper school. He also lived extravagantly, flying by private jet and buying expensive cars.”

UPDATE: Juan Cole has much more on Abramoff’s funding and support of Jewish extremism.
