Testimony by an FBI agent of Omar Ahmad and current CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad attending a meeting of Hamas leaders in Philadelphia in 1993 wasn’t enough to keep the indictments indicting. America, you CAIR offices in many, many cities in the U.S. Are you aware, and are you aware of how your city officials are handling them? Any awards given to CAIR in your city? Any invitations to city events handed out to CAIR officials? It’s something we must all know and be constantly on the watch for. As you read the following ask yourself, is the White House instrumental in dropping these indictments? Can Holder do so without consulting Obama?
…the administration would look like absolute fools. It’s kind of hard to prosecute someone on material support for terrorism when you have pictures of them getting handed awards from DOJ and FBI leaders for their supposed counter-terror efforts. ~ Patrick Poole, Pajamas Media

Remember the undicted co-conspirators of the Holyland Foundation – the “charity” that was funneling funds to terrorists in the Middle East? There was a reason why there were as yet “unindicted” co-conspirators. The plan was to go after leaders first, and the remainder, referred to as “unindicted,” later. So why didn’t this happen?
There’s a mountain of evidence against all of these groups that was never introduced during the Holy Land trial and it is damning. We’ve got them on wiretaps. That’s exactly why many of these leaders and groups were named unindicted co-conspirators in the first round of prosecutions…
…the administration would look like absolute fools. It’s kind of hard to prosecute someone on material support for terrorism when you have pictures of them getting handed awards from DOJ and FBI leaders for their supposed counter-terror efforts. How would Holder explain that when we’re carting off these prominent Islamic leaders in handcuffs for their role in a terror finance conspiracy we’ve been investigating for years? This is how bad the problem is. Why are we continuing to have anything to do with these groups knowing what we know?
Around our cities, in most of ours states, we have CAIR offices sitting on Main Street America. Are your local officials complicit in legitimizing CAIR? Here’s one that was, while trying to hide behind the bravado of being tough on crime:
During the House Homeland Security hearing last month on the topic of radicalization in the American Muslim community, one exchange between L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca and Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN) concerned the relationship between the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and Hamas terrorist front the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Sheriff Baca told the congressman:
“We don’t play around with criminals in my world. If CAIR is an organization that is a quote “criminal organization,” prosecute them. Hold them accountable and bring them to trial.”
But according to a high-ranking source within the Department of Justice, who spoke exclusively to Pajamas Media on the condition of anonymity, Sheriff Baca, a long-time supporter of CAIR, was probably already in on the joke.
Adding to the hypocrisy, after the Obama administration scuttled the next round of prosecutions in the Hamas terror financing investigation last March, Attorney General Eric Holder gave the prosecutors and FBI investigators in the Holy Land Foundation case the AG’s Award for Distinguished Service last October for their work in the case.
At a Congressional hearing on the DOJ’s much-delayed announcement that Khalid Sheik Mohammed and other would be tried at Guantanamo (but not anytime soon) David Beamer, father of United Flight 93 hero, Todd Beamer (“Let’s Roll) said the following:
“The policies of this administration cause us all to grieve anew. Instead of swift justice, President Obama worries that a military tribunal will offend the Muslim world. What about the effect of this needless delay on the morale of the American people?” he asked.
Be aware America. Nothing will happen unless we make it happen.
