Muslim Charities Sue Terrorist Hunter
Last month we had an entry about a woman who tracks down terrorists and their supporting organizations, who goes by the name of Sarah.
Today the Washington Post reports that a group of Muslim “charities” (currently under investigation for ties to terror gangs) is suing CBS and a woman they say is “Sarah:” CBS Sued Over ‘60 Minutes’ Report. (Hat tip: speedster.)
The plaintiffs in the case are two charities based in Herndon that are part of a large cluster of Muslim foundations, companies and think tanks based in Northern Virginia that are under federal investigation for alleged ties to radical Muslim activists in Europe and Florida.
Like the other organizations in this constellation of groups, the two charities that filed suit — Heritage Education Trust and Safa Trust — are generally known as moderate and patriotic outfits, and deny ties to terrorism.
“60 Minutes” quoted “Sarah” saying the network of groups in Herndon is “the heart of a terrorist financing ring.”
In the book and on television, “Anonymous” and “Sarah” describe how she persuaded federal agents to investigate the groups, sometimes collectively called the Saar network for the name of another of the groups under investigation. She also told of engaging in dumpster-diving outside their Herndon offices to retrieve documents. That led to the charge of trespassing in the suit filed yesterday.
