From WK's defamation hearing:
The court heard the travel for the 1987 conference was provided through the Manara Travel Agency in Ottawa and funded by the government of Libya. The court heard the owner of the agency, Mousa Hawamda, a former business partner of Mr. Macdonald, was subsequently investigated and indicted by the FBI for breaching a U.S. trade and travel embargo in relation to the conference.
In cross-examination, Mr. Christie questioned Mr. Kinsella about the indictment.
"Is there any reference to Ian Macdonald in the indictment?" he asked.
"No," Mr. Kinsella replied.
Mr. Christie noted that an illegal act in the U.S was not necessarily an illegal act in Canada.
"Conrad Black would disagree," Mr. Kinsella said.
"Oh, that's very funny." Mr. Christie shot back.
Actually, very funny. Working white supremacists and Conrad Black into a single wise crack is the equivalent of sinking a trick shot in pool or, at the end of a long concert, playing the final guitar solo with your teeth.
I remember I told a joke once that managed to be insulting to Italians, Lesbians, and midgets. Proudest moment of my life. Can't remember the joke, however.
