How many obstructions will CAIR attempt to put in the way of the resistance to the global jihad? From WND, with thanks to all who sent this in:
A controversial Islamic lobby group filed a Freedom of Information Act request for all government records related to President Bush’s post-9/11 executive orders authorizing wiretaps of communications between Americans and al-Qaida suspects overseas without a court order.
“It is the duty of all those who value the Constitution to state that no one, not even a president, is above the law,” said Arsalan Iftikhar, national legal director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
The group’s executive director, Nihad Awad, charged Bush’s “wiretapping policy is not only an apparent violation of existing law, it also gives carte blanche for spying, without legal oversight, on any American.”
“Such wide-ranging and unrestricted powers are an invitation to abuse of constitutional rights and freedoms, and should be of concern to everyone in a society based on respect for the law,” he asserted.
Awad said he fears such surveillance powers could be expanded and used to spy on people who hold dissenting political views.
Yeah. Such as people who say, “I am in support of the Hamas movement.”
