CAIR joins ACLU lawsuit against Fed Wiretaps
CAIR anounced today that they were joining the ACLU in filing a federal lawsuit against the NSA surveillance program in which certain overseas telephone calls were monitored. http://www.cair-net.org/default.asp?Page=articleView&id=1948&theType=NR. One can easily understand the ACLU's motivation for filing the brief as they have a long track record of opposing any government or law enforcement initiatives where individual liberties are perceived to be in jeopardy, but why is CAIR involved? A better question might be, "what are they hiding?"
I can't seem to find any concern expressed by the ADL, Mexican-American groups, or even from the African American leadership. So again, the question must be asked, "what is CAIR hiding?"
