The Corner

If you CAIR about access to our government

You should run, not walk, to my buddy Steve Emerson’s outstanding site, the Investigative Project on Terrorism (which Steve heads).  Today, for example, you can check out how Muthanna al-Hanooti – the guy indicted two days ago for being a Saddam operative who arranged a trip to Baghdad for three House Democrats in the run-up to the Iraq War — has had access to many top government officials (see the photos of Hanooti with First Lady Hillary Clinton and Vice President Al Gore).

Equally important, the IPT is in the midst of a 10-part series which will be the closest scrutiny ever done on the Council for American-Islamic Relations.  As the IPT sums it up:

[A] careful review of the history, activities, statements, and causes of and by CAIR, it seems that its primary goals are to silence and de-legitimize its critics and redefine what it means to be a moderate Muslim. And when it comes to U.S. efforts to crack down on terrorists and their financiers, CAIR takes an almost visceral stand in opposition. This has the effect of undermining the legitimate security-related concerns and campaigns of the United States and its allies. These conclusions and the summary immediately below are based upon the evidence and examples that follow in this report; beginning with CAIR’s very founding.
