FBI cuts ties with CAIR

Why they had any in the first place, beats me.

Comments

  1. The FBI had ties with CAIR because they bought their line about being a civil rights group for Muslims. Slowly the government is realizing they are a front group for Wahhabism. In the meantime, pollitical correctness steals a march on reality.

  2. Another relevant question:

    Why the hell does the US not designate the Muslim Brotherhood a ‘terrorist organization??’

    The same MB that is the inspiration for EVERY SINGLE terrorist organization out there!!

  3. “Why they had any in the first place, beats me.”

    Ha! That’s just what I thought!

  4. Still… it does imply they’re slowly getting it, don’t you think?

    Painfully slowly, of course.

  5. The new policy marks a major shift for the FBI, which has long been close to CAIR. The agency has previously invited CAIR to give training sessions for agents and used it as a liaison with the American Muslim community.

    CAIR’s executive director, Nihad Awad, attended a post-Sept. 11 meeting with then-FBI director Robert Mueller, and he met with other top brass as recently as 2006. But that was before Awad was shown to have participated in planning meetings with the Holy Land Foundation, five officials of which were convicted in December of funneling $12.4 million to Hamas.

    That’s just ridiculous. The whole world has known about CAIR for at least 4 years. But the FBI? Clueless. And who would expect the Federal Bureau of Investigation to know about what’s going on in the United States, anyway?

    Well, now we know how Raed Jarrar got a Visa to enter the US. He probably asked somebody at CAIR to vouch for him, which caused the FBI to disregard all the hundreds of complaints they must have received from concerned Americans.

    I’m still hoping that Obama will disband Department of Homeland Security and especially the TSA. If they’ve been catching terrorists, it hasn’t been making the news, and I think it would be. So what is the point? Just to make everyone feel like the Government is on top of things? Well, we know the FBI isn’t, right? We’re heading for a depression and its time to cut programs that don’t work. Obama even said so. The Department of Homeland Security doesn’t work, President Obama.

    Not to mention that CAIR officials were given a rather open view of FBI operating procedures when the organization has to interact with Muslims – CAIR have, it would seem, pretty much wrote the courses on that. Not to mention that CAIR was given the ability to act as a kind of interface between Muslims and the FBI in America.

    That truly went above and beyond the call of stupidity.

  7. You can take the FBI out of CAIR, but you can’t take CAIR out of the FBI…..CAIR members are infiltrators, not assimilators.

  8. Why you guys are surprised? FBI (i.e. US) fully supports wahabism as a tool to control the gullible masses these days in the ME ,similar to the Brits having created the MB to contro the ME (then defined by Egypt) in the last century. The good student Israel followed and still do the same technique with Hamas,…Wake up people and smell the divide and conquer aroma !!But you know what? since the ME populations allowed this to happen for over 70 years, probably they deserve it until they know better!!!!!!!!!.

    Domo,

    I left my bag on the train coming back from the last Global Zionist Conspiracy Coordinating Meeting. You must have found it! Can I get it back? My favorite socks are in it.

  10. Purely political move.

    This has been a pet cause of the Know-Nothing Right blogosphere (Craig’s “whole world”) for years now.

    Investigations have been done. Nothing has materialized. Nothing.

    The FBI has finally given in to the Steven Emersons.

    A loss for America.

  11. Actually, quite a bit about CAIR has materialized, most of it summarized at the Anti-CAIR website. If you don’t like the facts that Steven Emerson has uncovered, debunk them. Emerson has done quite a service to America by revealing that Muslims have been openly plotting to make war on America in plain sight in our hotels and in mosques in America, hidden by the language barrier.

    What we have learned in America is that anything Muslims vociferously deny is probably true, that anyone Muslims denounce is probably telling unpleasant truths. All America is learning about taqqiyya.

  12. Investigations have been done. Nothing has materialized. Nothing.

    Hani, I take it you didn’t bother to read the article? lol. Talk about “know-nothings”.

  13. CAIR’s executive director, Nihad Awad, attended a post-Sept. 11 meeting with then-FBI director Robert Mueller, and he met with other top brass as recently as 2006.

    Whole lotta nothing going on there, right Hani? ;)

  14. FBI is Finally Cutting Ties with Terrorist Front Group

    Muslims Against Sharia congratulate The Investigative Project on making this possible!

  15. This story is currently being carried by Fox News, Town Hall, WorldNetDaily, Powerline, and the same group that pushed for marginalizing CAIR, the “Investigative Project on Terrorism” (headed by none other than Steven Emerson). I think that’s all that needs to be said about that.

    And Tantor, please consult Hofstadter.

    Your point? Fox News, while a biased (some would say heavily biased) news outlet, is also a fairly accurate one. I somehow doubt that they invented FBI statements, CAIR’s replies to said statements, and so on and so forth…

  17. You think Fox News fabricated court convictions, Hani? :o
