Is Peter King a Hypocrite for Past Association with the IRA?

Hosted by

On Thursday, Peter King, chair of the Homeland Security Committee, will begin hearings on the "extent of the radicalization" of American Muslims. Many American Muslims are angry about the hearings, and the Obama White House tried to reassure them over the weekend. Although the New York Republican was a supporter of the IRA and their violent attacks, both Bill Clinton and Tony Blair credit him with helping to bring peace.  But critics accused him of imposing a double standard, and Amnesty International says it's "hypocrisy," according to a report by Peter Finn of the Washington Post.
