On Minnesota Monitor yesterday, Abdi Aynte had a post about the Protection of Americans Fighting Terrorism Act of 2007. As Abdi points out, this bill is a response to the filing of a lawsuit by six Muslim imams who were removed from a flight leaving Minneapolis because some passengers thought they were terrorists. The link to the bill in Abdi's post doesn't work, so Spot thought he would refer readers to his post Insulation of Bigotry Act of 2007, which contains a link to the bill, and Spot describes the bill and its infirmities in some detail. Spot expanded this discussion in We are all imams now.
