The crew at Power Line has been doing a superb job of following up the case of the Holy Land Foundation, in which the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was named as an unidicted co-conspirator. The offical indictment can be found in the previous link. The national media, on the other hand, has been virtually silent, both on the case itself, which has exposed all kinds of illicit relationships, and on the uneasy relationship the United States government has with Muslim organizations such as CAIR, many of whom are linked with the very people whom we are currently fighting.
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]."
Mr. Johnson quite correctly noted that this had some interesting aspects- the government fraternizing with some of the same people it was currently engaged in trying a criminal case - with grave consequences for the United States - while at the same time trying to play buddy-buddy with the defendants. And the media virtually ignored this strange event, just as they have ignored most if not all of the Holy Land case. As Mr. Johnson wrote, "I can find precisely one news story noting -- shall we say? -- the tension in the government's actions."
CORRECTION: I mistyped that the convention at which the Justice Department had a booth was CAIR's. it was actually the Islamic Society of North America's (ISNA) instead. I apologize for the mistake.
