Reader comment on item: Telephoning the Enemy

Submitted by Sully (United States), Apr 19, 2006 at 18:42

If groups like CAIR did not exist it would be necessary to invent them to serve as honey traps for would be domestic terrorists and as easily monitored telecommunications nodes for identifying careless or naive terrorists overseas.

Inserting an intelligence source into an Al Quaeda or Taliban cell is hard. Converting and/or monitoring soft and intellectually lazy fellows like the head of CAIR and his underlings should be very easy.

Before, during and after an emergency CAIR should be assured of rapid telecommunications as a matter of highest priority.
