Caring CAIR

Given the organization’s track record, it’s hard not to be skeptical of the AP report that “A delegation from the Council on American-Islamic Relations flew to Baghdad from neighboring Jordan in a bid to drum up momentum for [journalist Jill] Carroll’s release. The 28-year-old was abducted Jan. 7 in a tough west Baghdad neighborhood.” But I think this is a good thing overall. Just getting a group like this to take concrete action in any way against terror puts them on record as being against the tactics of the so-called insurgents. If the insurgents behave as they normally do (as murdering psychopaths), this only enhances the isolation of the terrorists.
