Below I set forth at some length what the government of the United States has to say about CAIR in response to CAIR’s motion filed in the Holy Land Foundation prosecution. The HLF prosecution is one of the most serious terrorism-related prosecutions brought by the government since 9/11. What the government has said about CAIR and its fellow unindicted co-conspirators such as the Islamic Society of North America in the prosecution is serious business. That’s on the one hand.
On the other hand, the government was fraternizing with one of the unindicted co-conspirators this past weekend in Rosemont, Illinois. The Justice Department sponsored a booth at ISNA’s national convention. The Justice Department has declined to say how much it paid for the booth at the convention, but we can infer it paid something. And not just the Justice Department. Janet Ellen Levy usefully summarizes the roster of government departments and agencies attending the convention: “The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of State, the FBI, USAID, the Department of Transportation, and the TSA all had booths at the ISNA [convention].” She adds: “A session was held on recruiting Muslims for careers in the government.” I can find precisely one news story noting — shall we say? — the tension in the government’s actions.
