CAIR is an "unindicted coconspirator"? How does that inhibit them? They are still free to sabotage America in any way they can. I don't mean by setting bombs. They can file lawsuits and intimidate our lawmakers and ordinary people who don't have the resources of the Saudi Arabian government. Look at the people who were harassed by CAIR in the wake of the "flying imams" incident. Even though the lawsuit was dismissed, some people will now think twice before reporting suspicious behavior.

President Bush is set on giving legal status to millions of people in this country illegally. Everyone is focused on Latin Americans but there are countless Muslims who are also here illegally. They are coming in through Canada and Mexico if they can't get visas to fly in here directly. Many of them are friendly and want only to live in peace but there are also jihadists who are setting up shop here and biding their time, waiting for the right time and place to strike.

Progress is in the eye of the beholder. With few exceptions, the people with the power are not on our side.
