Sinn Fein Barred from U.S. Fundraising

Reuters cites the London Times: "Sinn Fein, the political ally of the IRA has been banned from fundraising in the United States, The Times has reported, citing diplomatic sources.
It said the order, passed to Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams via U.S. State Department channels, followed White House anger over accusations the IRA was continuing criminal activity."

Reuters also reports that President Bush will not meet with Gerry Adams on St. Patrick's Day. Bush is evidently in a mood to press terrorists around the world, and not just the Islamic ones.
