U.S. House hearing on al-Shabaab leaves out testimony from Minneapolis Somalis

U.S. House hearing on al-Shabaab leaves out testimony from Minneapolis Somalis

In the third controversial congressional hearing on Muslim extremism Wednesday, Chair Peter King pointed directly at Minneapolis connections to al-Shabaab as a threat to United States security, although no Minnesota Somali-Americans were invited to testify. In his opening statement, King said al-Shabaab should not be viewed as a threat to only Somalia: ”With al-Shabaab’s large cadre of American jihadis and unquestionable ties to al-Qaeda, particularly its alliance with AQAP, we must face the reality that al-Shabaab is a growing threat to our homeland.” More than 20 Somali-Americans from Minneapolis have been recruited to al-Shabaab in recent years, according to law enforcement. King pointed to a guilty plea by an al-Shabaab recruiter and a very public scuffle in the state’s largest mosque as evidence that “jihadi sympathizers” are active in the Minneapolis community

Questions about Iowa Family Leader division’s use of taxpayer funds remain

Questions about Iowa Family Leader division’s use of taxpayer funds remain

The Iowa Family Policy Center , a division of The Family Leader , did not comply with federal-grant protocol when it relinquished the last year of federal funding it received for a controversial marriage-counseling program, according to documents obtained by The Independent under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). At the center of the controversy is the recent revelation that the Iowa Family Policy Center (IFPC) might have used taxpayer dollars to wage a campaign against same-sex marriage in the state. Shorty after The Iowa Independent began reporting on IFPC’s Marriage Matters program, IFPC announced they had agreed in September 2009 to stop accepting money from the U.S.
