Another modern Witchcraze

An American citizen behing held prisoner by American authorities for apparently no reason besides his ethnicity and some donations he made to an organization Warblogging.com: Maher (Mike) Hawash

Mr. Hawash is now being held without charge by the United States Government. They haven’t even bothered to accuse him of a crime. Call your senator, call your congrsesman. Tell them that this will not stand. Tell them that it is unacceptable that the United States would treat its citizens like this. Tell them that they should do one of the following:


  • Charge Mr. Hawash with a crime,

  • Have Mr. Hawash testify in court as a material witness as quickly as possible, or

  • Release Mr. Hawash

The Department of Justice has publicly said that it is using material witness warrants to hold people it suspects of being terrorists when it cannot gather enough evidence for an indictment. Such abuses are un-American.

You all know what this reminds me of. There have been other articles at WarBlogging and other places about other people being held for similar non-reasons. It looks like a real witch-craze to me. And some other stuff too. After the (not so blitzy) Blitzkrieg comes now ….?
