McCain linked to private Iran-Contra group

After bringing up that Barack Obama happened to serve on the same charity board as '60s Weather Underground co-founder William Ayers, it seems John McCain has also served on a board with some unsavory ties. The Senator from Arizona was on an advisory board of a US chapter of the World Anti-Communist League which has links to ultra-right-wing death squads in South America that fought the Nicaraguan leftist government in the '80s. During the Iran-Contra fiasco, the group supplied the anti-communist Contras with weapons and aide.

Those who live in glass houses should not throw rocks.
