While the CCF absurdly connects the HSUS to terrorism in 6 degrees of separation, CCF is connected to terrorism in only 2 steps
Karen left a comment connecting CCF to terrorism in two steps: CCF was created by Philip Morris, and Philip Morris has ties to cigarette smuggling, which directly funds terrorist groups. (Congrats Karen! You�ll be receiving your "domestic terrorist" apron!)
In 1995, Philip Morris created the Guest Choice Network. It�s a front group that was proposed by Rick Berman in a letter to a Philip Morris executive. Here�s the letter.
In January, 2002, the Guest Choice Network renamed itself the Center for Consumer Freedom. Rick Berman is still in charge.
Philip Morris has been exposed for its involvement in illegal cigarette smuggling, including smuggling into Iraq in violation of United Nations sanctions. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says cigarette smuggling funnels millions of dollars to groups like Al Qaeda [See Washington Post, ""Cigarette Smuggling Linked to Terrorism" and the UK Telegraph, "US tobacco companies face claims of smuggling to Iraq," and the six-month investigation by PBS and NOW with Bill Moyers.]
