islamic civil rights group linked to terrorism

Add "unindicted co-conspirator" to the long list of CAIR achievements in the United States. On Monday, federal prosecutors named CAIR, the islamic Society of America and the North American islamic Trust as participants in an alleged criminal conspiracy to support hamas. The case is against officials with the defunct Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, are charged with "conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists" by sending money, goods and services to palestinian charities controlled by hamas. The case begins on July 16 in Dallas.

The unindicted co-conspirator tag carries no legal weight and only serves to damage their credibility, warranting a closer examination of issues where they're concerned. The outing of unindicted co-conspirators isn't normally done, it has no barring on the case. I believe this action, by prosecutors, facilitates the need for a more intense scrutiny of these organizations.

They operate under the umbrella of freedom afforded to them by our laws and it's by those same freedoms that will allow them to function unmolested by our government. This designation must have the spin masters working overtime.
