CAIR FILES FOIA REQUEST ON RADIATION MONITORING OF MUSLIM SITES
Request seeks list of Muslim homes, businesses, mosques targeted under secret program
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/27/05) – A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today announced the filing of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for all government records relating to a secret government program that monitored the radiation levels at more than 100 Muslim homes, businesses and mosques in the capital region and in other areas nationwide…
…The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed the FOIA request with the Department of Justice, including the FBI, and the Department of Energy.
In the request, CAIR asked for: 1) “Records concerning the authority of President Bush to delegate or personally authorize surveillance without obtaining a court order as required by FISA,” and 2) “Comprehensive lists and addresses of the over a hundred Muslim sites (including mosques, organizations, businesses, warehouses and homes) in Washington D.C., Chicago, Detroit, New York, Las Vegas and Seattle which have been targeted for radiological surveillance by this top secret program…”
Thanks, US News. Next time, why not just hand over whatever classified information you obtain directly to al Qaeda?
If only these MSM blabbermouths invested as much energy exposing the terrorist sympathies and connections of CAIR as they did in exposing every last Bush administration counterterrorism measure to protect American lives, they’d fully understand the damage they have done.

Meanwhile, the vultures, oops, lawyers for terror suspects are descending over the NYT/NSA story:
Defense lawyers in some of the country’s biggest terrorism cases say they plan to bring legal challenges to determine whether the National Security Agency used illegal wiretaps against several dozen Muslim men tied to Al Qaeda.
The lawyers said in interviews that they wanted to learn whether the men were monitored by the agency and, if so, whether the government withheld critical information or misled judges and defense lawyers about how and why the men were singled out.
The expected legal challenges, in cases from Florida, Ohio, Oregon and Virginia, add another dimension to the growing controversy over the agency’s domestic surveillance program and could jeopardize some of the Bush administration’s most important courtroom victories in terror cases, legal analysts say.
But you knew this was going to happen already.

To say that this was a predictable outgrowth of the New York Times leaking the top secret NSA intercept program is an understatement. In fact, since the Times sat on the story for a year and thus had ample time to examine all the potential consequences of publishing the information, one can only come to the conclusion that the paper’s editors wanted to throw a great big monkey wrench into the Administration’s efforts to not only monitor terrorists but prosecute them as well.
