Marc Klaas on Foley, Hastert et al.

Appearing on MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann tonight, Marc Klaas, father of Polly Klaas, advocate for stronger laws against sexual predators, on the Foley affair:

"There are more red flags in this affair than there are in a Chinese New Year's parade. Remember, in 1995 according to A.P. the pages were talking among themselves and warning each other about Foley. And then you can just go down the list from Representative Alexander who brought the initial emails, the Katrina emails to leadership, to Mr. Boehner, to Mr. Reynolds, to Mr. Shimkus, to Mr. Hastert, to Mr. Fordham who said that he brought this information to them three years ago. At the very best they chose to ignore a very difficult situation. And certainly at worst they are involved in a massive coverup which I think betrays all Americans and everything that we all stand for."

But then no doubt Mr. Klaas is yet another tool of the vast left-wing conspiracy that haunts Mr. Hastert's fever dreams.

    I adore Marc Klaas. Here is an article I wrote about one of his appearances on the Nancy Grace show.

    Bravo, Marc Klaas

    He is so piercingly magnificent.

    Today, Jane Velez Mitchell talked about a case in Los Angeles, where they arrested a man who was a member of a predator community, where you gain status by providing and producing images of child pornography, as well as downloading them. He was a bus driver with 10,000 images of child pornography on his computer.

    As he was viewing them in an internet cafe, a worker noticed what was on his screen, ran out, and flagged down a police car. "I mean, we have to give credit where credit is due to these unsung heroes," Jane Velez Mitchell said, to which Marc Klaas replied...

    "Well, we certainly do, Jane, because this is an epidemic in the United States. This is something that has been -- the kiddie porn industry had been almost eradicated until the Internet came along, and now this file sharing is absolutely out of control.

    "And the way it works is that these guys gain entree into this world, and they start sharing and getting some of these images, but then what ultimately happens is it escalates. In order to get the next level of images, you have to participate and you have to start delivering images of your own.

    "So it creates this environment that just spirals downhill, as little girls and little boys becoming victimized time and time again. And, quite frankly, you`re absolutely correct about that clerk at the Internet cafe. One only wishes that some of the major Internet service providers in this country had the same kind of moral character that this individual does, and we may never have gotten to this position in the first place."

    In my article, Midnight in the Community of Good and Evil, I quote a speech where Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez describes exactly what Marc is talking about. I posted that article on my friend Nancy White's online facilitation list. In further comments, I said the situation was a pandemic. Many of the men on that list, including fathers, did not believe me.

    When Marc Klaas used the word, "epidemic" and blasted the ISPs, I stood up in my living room and cheered.
