Radical Muslim Hearing

Recorded on March 14, 2011

It's time for common sense; I'm Ernest Istook.

We've witnessed some of the most blatantly biased media coverage in history. A major Congressional hearing was widely covered—yet most media failed to report what the witnesses said, about how terrorists are actively recruited from among American Muslims.

Instead, the major media focused on condemnations of even holding hearings and for violating political correctness. But hiding our heads in the sand doesn't address the problem that radical jihadists are recruiting American citizens to commit murder and mayhem. We saw this with the 13 deaths at Fort Hood, and in too many other attempts that fortunately were thwarted.

Most American Muslims are peaceful and law-abiding, but we cannot ignore the facts, which were brought up at the hearing but ignored by media, that there is active recruiting underway that is a threat to our security.

For common sense, from The Heritage Foundation, I'm Ernest Istook.
