Bush pardons man who helped Israel during wartime

"He and other volunteers from around the world defied weapons embargoes to supply the newly established Israel with critical supplies to defend itself against mounting attacks from all sides," New York Reps. Carolyn Maloney, Gary Ackerman, Jose Serrano and Brian Higgins said in a Dec. 15 letter urging Bush to pardon Charlie Winters. "Without the actions of individuals like Mr. Winters, this fledgling democracy in the Middle East almost certainly would not have survived as the surrounding nations closed in on Israel's borders."

Okay, let me get this straight - one Christian Zionist pardons another Christian Zionist - 16 years after his death. So, what's the big deal? I guess, I just a little slow here. Now, if Bush had pardoned Jonathan Pollard, I would be pissed.
