Dems Supporting Flying Imams

Dems want provision of John Doe cut from homeland security. Washington Times:

    Democrats are trying to pull a provision from a homeland security bill that will protect the public from being sued for reporting suspicious behavior that may lead to a terrorist attack, according to House Republican leadership aides.

    [...]

    Rep. Pete King, New York Republican and ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, and Rep. Steve Pearce, New Mexico Republican, sponsored the bill after a group of Muslim imams filed a lawsuit against U.S. Airways and unknown or “John Doe” passengers after they were removed for suspicious behavior aboard Flight 300 from Minneapolis to Phoenix on Nov. 20 before their removal.

    “Democrats are trying to find any technical excuse to keep immunity out of the language of the bill to protect citizens, who in good faith, report suspicious activity to police or law enforcement,” Mr. King said in an interview last night.

    “This is a slap in the face of good citizens who do their patriotic duty and come forward, and it caves in to radical Islamists,” Mr. King said.

    “I don't see how you can have a homeland security bill without protecting people who come forward to report suspicious activity,” Mr. King said.


House Republican Whip Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement. PR Newswire:

    National security in a post-9/11 world requires the constant vigilance of the American people, and the courage to stand up and report activity they deem to be unusual or suspicious. That Democrats in the House and Senate would seek to strip a provision protecting Americans from being sued for discharging these important duties is deeply troubling -- and is something Republicans in the House will not abide."

But hey, don't ever forget that the Democrats are tough on terrorism! Why, they're as tough as anybody, just ask them and they will tell you that they are "tough on terrorism". Don't ever forget that.
