Another proud day for North Carolina courtesy of Sue Myrick

imagesI usually keep my comments to health care related items but this tidbit was too good (depressing?) to overlook.

Apparently Myrick is one of the Republicans citing a book published by WorldNetDaily as pretext to investigate possible Muslim spies interning on Capitol Hill. The title of the book: Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.

You can read the ridiculous details here.

    I know Dave Gaubatz and he is an honest investigator with many years of experience. Did you read the book yet?

    I must admit, WorldNetDaily books have yet to hit my reading list.

    Good to see that even the lunatic fringe is checking out the Progressive Pulse.

    I don’t know Mac, WorldNetDaily readers don’t seem that blissful to me.

    The Left doesn’t care about facts or truth, they only care about trying to make people who don’t agree with them look like racists and lunatics.

    The FBI has publically stated CAIR has ties to HAMAS, a designated terrorist organization. This was clearly stated in a letter the FBI sent to Sen. Jon Kyl on April 28, 2009:

    “As you know, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in the United States v. Holy Land Foundation et al. (Cr. No. 3:04-240-P (N.D.TX.). During that trial, evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestinian Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestinian Committee and HAMAS, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI.”

    Why would anyone allow a group, who the FBI says is tied to terrorism, to influence national security policy, or any policy for that matter?

    If the FBI has cut ties with CAIR, Congress should wake up and do the same

    Hal, your “unindicted co-conspirator” reasoning is constantly used against CAIR and is completely unfair. It was a 100% political move by the DOJ (not the FBI).

    “According to one senior law-enforcement official (who asked not to be named talking about an ongoing case), the listing of ISNA, CAIR and other groups as ‘unindicted co-conspirators’ was largely a tactical move by the government.” (Newsweek, 8/08/2007)

    Just the term alone “unindicted co-conspirator” means there was no evidence. If there were any compelling evidence, DOJ would have at least tried to get an indictment and probably whisked someone away to Guantanamo.

    If there were an indictment, then all of the “evidence” would be made public and CAIR could defend itself in court. This is the rule of law in America: the accused are given a trial. It’s the 5th amendment. Instead DOJ made-up the term unindicted co-conspirator.

    Additionally, the books author Gaubatz, is quite an extremist: He has been quoted as saying Islam is a “terminal disease that once spread is hard to destroy”.

    In 2007, he was a leading member of SANE (Society of Americans for National Existence) which declared on its now password protected site that, “adherence to Islam as a Muslim is prima facie evidence of an act in support of the overthrow of the US.” SANE’s website includes this little gem (which they’d like to see enacted as law): “It shall be a felony punishable by 20 years in prison to knowingly act in furtherance of, or to support the, adherence to Islam.”

    If you believe in America and the constitutional freedom of religion, then you fundamentally have to disagree with Gaubatz and what he believes.
