US Rep. Myrick Urges DOJ To Withdraw From Islamic Conference

Keep in mind folks that from Jan. 2000 to Dec. 2005, my Congressional representation was from Jim Moran (D-VA).  Just do a Google search with “Moran” and “controversy” and you’ll understand…..

Now, I have the utmost pleasure to be firmly planted in the 9th Congressional District with my outstanding Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-NC).   Not only is she a leader in cracking down on illegal immigration, but she now appears to be poised to be a Congressional leader on cracking down on Islamic terrorism.

Myrick has co-signed a letter with terror warhawk US Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) urging the US Department of Justice to withdraw its sponsorship of an upcoming conference by the Islamic Society of North America.

According to Myrick and Hoekstra’s letter….

ISNA’s roots in the Muslim Brotherhood and activities in support of HAMAS – designated by the U.S. as a terrorist group – should disqualify ISNA from DOJ outreach efforts to the Muslim community.

“In light of the threat that our nation, and the world in general, is currently facing from radical Jihadists, and because of the President’s commitment to fighting the War on Terror on all fronts, we believe it is a grave mistake to provide legitimacy to an organization with extremist origins, leadership and a radical agenda,” the representatives wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to the Attorney General’s office.

It continued, “Establishing a partnership with ISNA is exactly the wrong approach at this critical juncture in history, setting a precedent that radical Jihadists should be the conduit between the U.S. government and the American Muslim population, and we urge you to reconsider your decision to establish an official relationship with ISNA.”

Thank you, Congresswoman Myrick for standing up (again and again) for what is the RIGHT THING TO DO.

Why isn’t Speaker Pelosi joining the call against taxpayers’ money being used to put up a DOJ booth at a radical Islamic conference?

WMD Vials Found At United Nations?

Just when you thought you wouldn’t be surprised by anything anymore…..

Nerve Gas Found at UN Building – ABC News (h/t – Instapundit)

ABCNews has learned that United Nations weapons inspectors discovered six to eight vials of a dangerous nerve gas, phosgene, as they were cleaning out offices at a U.N. building in New York Thursday morning.

Federal authorities said the office, in a U.N. building near headquarters, was being evacuated and the White House had been notified at 10 a.m.

New York police and fire officials said federal authorities had not notified them of any problem at the U.N. building, as of 11 a.m.

A U.N. spokesperson said a statement would be issued shortly.

Authorities said the phosgene was believed to have been discovered in Iraq and manufactured prior to 1991.

Say what??!!??

And then again, it could just be a sloppy mistake of monumental proportions….

Former U.N. weapons inspectors told ABCNews.com that vials of phosgene had also been used by inspectors in Iraq to help calibrate air sampling instruments.

The former inspectors said the remaining vials were supposed to have been destroyed.

“If it is properly sealed, it should not pose much of a threat unless it is dropped,” said former New York City emergency services director Jerry Hauer, an ABC News consultant.

“They need to get it out of there and put it in a safe canister,” Hauer said. “It shows immense stupidity to have that kind of thing sitting around as a souvenir.”

According to the Web site of the Centers for Disease Control, phosgene at room temperature is a poisonous, colorless gas with a suffocating odor like newly mown hay.

If UN weapons inspectors can’t keep track of their own deadly chemicals, how can we trust them to find ones being hidden by rogue regimes?

Ah, but things might not be as simple as a dumb weapons’ inspector with a love for phosgene….

Here’s this addition…

According to an article in Foreign Affairs, the chemical was allegedly used by Iran in the Iran-Iraq war in 1987.

So there is one easy question to answer before we get into the more difficult ones:   Whose UN office were the vials found in?

UPDATE!  We have an answer to my question, folks!

The Iraqi weapons inspectors came across the material as they were closing their offices, which are housed in a building near the U.N. headquarters in Manhattan, said Ewen Buchanan, a spokesman for the inspectors.

I really do hope (and expect) that complete incompetence by UN bureaucrats is the explanation.   I also really do hope we actually get an explanation.
