The U.S. Institute of Peace Stumbles - Comments

Reader comment on item: The U.S. Institute of Peace Stumbles

Submitted by Richard McMahon (United States), Mar 23, 2004 at 11:22

Dear Dr. Pipes,

Your article & expose prompted me to e-mail the USIP the following:

"I am writing to protest your organization's association with the
CSID, a group known to be supportive of radical Islam. As a taxpayer supporting the funding for USIP, I expect higher standards in the vetting of groups and organizations to co-sponsor events and programs with USIP. Any organization that has Kamran Bokhari as a fellow cannot be
aligned with USA's best interests in promoting peace and fighting terrorism. Your fractured sense of political correctness and misaligned priorities are a disservice to all Americans."

Hopefully, USIP will begin to hear the music.
