A terrorist by any other name

It seems they're only "terrorists" if they attack our allies.

How esle to explain how the Bush administration has classified the PJKK, the arm of the Kurdish PKK that has continually attacked Turkish armed forces and has been labeled a terrorist organization.

The PJKK has not been labeled a terrorist organization, even though it is the exact same thing as the "terrorist" PKK. The only difference: the PJKK operates in Iran.

I've heard that "an enemy of my enemy is my friend," but ignoring one set of terrorists (even condoning it) and actively opposing another that are, in reality, one and the same group, sets a terrible double standard. Seems this administration couldn't live without them.
