Obama Admin Spends Christmas Trying To Get Islamist Groups Off Terror List
by Patrick Howley
The Obama administration spent Christmas week trying to get two Islamist organizations off a foreign country's terror list.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society are both listed as Islamist organizations by the Islamist Money In Politics database, which tracks copious political spending by figures linked to the groups. The Muslim American Society was founded as an American-based Muslim Brotherhood front group.
CAIR and MAS representatives met with "senior U.S. government officials" just days before Christmas to discuss the groups' inclusion on the United Arab Emirates' official list of terrorist organizations.
