THE TERROR WITHIN, AND THEIR SUPPORTERS

It's easy to get behind tougher immigration laws, profiling tourists, etc. After all, the 9/11 terrorists were all "short-timers". But what about folks who've been here awhile? Do we really need to be concerned about them?

If you've followed the story of Palestinian-born Mike Hawash, you have to say yes. He was the guy who the FBI arrested at his job working for Intel in Oregon. He's lived in the US for most of his life and was a naturalized citizen. After he was arrested, you heard all the standard objections about profiling, civil liberties being infringed, "police state", yada yada.

But all the harpies cries were silenced when he pleaded guilty to directly helping the Taliban.

What Daniel Pipes wants to know why his supporters haven't admitted their mistakes.
