Exclusive: A Sharp New Look at 'Material Witness' Arrests

Mr. Isokoff been a little busy. After getting his ass hung out to dry on the fake Quran story, his next 'exclusive' is about 70 "material witnesses" picked up by the FBI in the wake of 9/11 who were "victims" of a "little-known legal tactic". The Material Witness Rule.

Citing a report to be issued this week from Human Rights Watch and the ACLU, he writes:

"A report to be released this week by two civil-liberties groups finds nearly 90 percent of these suspects were never linked to any terrorism acts, resulting in prosecutors and FBI agents issuing at least 13 apologies for wrongful arrest."

....Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union say they have assembled the most comprehensive look yet at the practice—and conclude it may have produced the most civil-liberties abuses of any post-9/11 policy. Out of the 70 "material witness" arrests the groups were able to document, only seven suspects ended up charged with terror-related crimes."

Ok, you've lost me here already Mike. Both those organizations are decidedly leftist and anti-US, anti-Israel - therefore anything they've come up with is suspect in my book.

The 'horror stories' of the sweeps conducted by the FBI in the months after 9/11 are old news. Sure there were wrongful incarcerations. But people weren't picked up for "no reason" or because they were "muslim". Give the FBI a break you dweeb, in all the hsyteria after 9/11 ONLY 70 being picked up (although they may have been more), is an astounding show of professionalism and restraint.

This isn't an "exclusive" it's a 'hit piece" another cheap shot at the administration for which Isokoff prides himself on.
