    A new documentary film premiering this weekend in Toronto exposes conservative Pat Robertson as a criminal fraud who bilked money from gullible viewers to line his own pockets. The film shows how Robertson used a bogus charity as a supply line for his diamond mining business in Africa.

    “Mission Congo" details how Robertson reportedly used aid money donated to his foreign ministry program "Operation Blessing International" to instead provide mining equipment and other services to his diamond-mining operation in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Robertson also used images of doctors and tents provided by the international medical aid group Médecins sans Frontières (MSF aka “Doctors Without Borders”) to promote Operation Blessing, claiming that his group had provided the tents and the doctors and that donor money from his Christian empire was the main source of aid to the war-torn region.

    "Operation Blessing", says the film, still pulls in hundreds of millions of dollars a year, money that Robertson is using to enrich himself and his family. The film contains damning testimony from former Operation Blessing workers, including airplane pilots, who say that humanitarian mission flights were routinely diverted hundreds of miles off course to deliver mining equipment and other supplies to Robertson’s diamond mining operation in Kamonia.

    God personally told him to, so it's okay.

    I doubt any Federal or State prosecutor, or government agency will ever take on Robertson. He's immune from oversight and he knows it, his followers and organization too powerful.

    And even in the highly unlikely event credible charges are brought against him, he can always claim mental incompetence, due to old age. Among his proofs could be his recent claim that gay men wear a special ring we use to cut other people when we shake hands, so we can spread our HIV. icon_rolleyes.gif
