Apparently some believe this is a bombshell story, but really it’s old news, but still yet important news. Once again the FBI is admitting they have cut ties with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). They did the same thing in 2008, but then continued to cozy up anyway. See a video below.
CAIR’s presence in Washington is large. The FBI paid for a CAIR official to travel to Mali to “build religious and cultural ties with the U.S. – twice! Dawud Walid, the executive director of the Michigan CAIR took the Mali trip as an opportunity to give a wink and nod to the audience and then skewer the U.S. for our treatment of Muslims – on the taxpayer dime.
Chicago FBI “top agent,” Rob Grant, spoke at an event moderated by a CAIR attorney. The Investigative Project said Grant heard about the CAIR connection at the last minute, but spoke anyway, thinking that to be the best action. Clearly our FBI is far too PC. (see the link above).
Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison uses CAIR interns in his office, and attends pro-Hamas rallies in his state of Minnesota.
The U.S. Census Bureau signed a $5.8 MILLION 2010 lease owned by the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque where Anwar al-Awlaki was a former iman. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents show that Dar Al-Hijarh mosque is a front for Hams and linked to terror financing. In case you didn’t quite get it: the U.S. Census SIGNED A LEASE with these people.
Valerie Jarrett, the “other side of Barack’s brain” had a little soiree to thank MTV for “countering bullying” and CAIR was actually applauded right there on the spot, at the White House – that was March 10, 2011 – just a few days ago.
With all the above, Republic Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX) said this week he is shocked that only now, has the FBI actually cut off all outreach. Senator Chuck Schumer wants a ban on CAIR enforced “government-wide.” Yawn. Take a look at this video with new Florida Congressman, Allen West, responding to a CAIR director who confronted him at one of his townhall meetings.
