Debbie Schlussel, has Sally Beatty in her sights as a totally live breathing example of a regurgitating reporter ISO of new career position. This is the type of "reporter" the head of GIMF, Al-Rawi, is searching for in his plans to "invade American Media". Al-Rawi explains, there is a need for a group of people who are proficient in the English language, both spoken and written, to translate all the Arabic messages "which are intended for the American people." Sally Beatty is incapable of using Google to run a simple background check and will parrot anything you tell her. Perfect. Debbie Schlussel states Beatty's qualifications as:
In today's Wall Street Journal, Sally Beatty's "Giving Back" column is subtitled, "Nonprofits Fight Terror Guidelines." In it, she sympathizes with a host of lefty and Islamist charities on our shores who don't want to do due diligence on their recipients, who are often terrorists or terrorist money launderers.
Puh-leeze. Doesn't this woman do a speck of research? LIFE was raided by the FBI just weeks ago. And as I wrote on this site (here and here) and in the New York Post, the "charity" hardly complied with the laws against funding terrorism. They skirted them. The charity apparently violated embargo laws against dealing with Saddam's Iraq, funded HAMAS through its Jordanian operation, had ties to Al-Qaeda, and laundered money to Al-Qaeda terrorist insurgents blowing up our soldiers all over Iraq.
That's bad enough. But, then, this airhead "reporter" goes and quotes extremist, terror-apologist lawyer Ihsan Alkhatib, general counsel for Islamic charity LIFE for Relief and Development, as an example of a Muslim charity that has "struggled to comply" with U.S. Treasury requirements to root out terrorists.
