Homeland Security: A bill to protect citizens who report terror threats became law only Friday, yet it's already working to back down terror-supporting bullies.
The so-called "Flying Imams" dropped passengers as defendants in their bogus case just days after Congress reached a deal to shield terror tipsters from race-bias suits.
The Muslim clerics were kicked off a US Airways flight in November after passengers warned crew members the clerics were behaving like the 9/11 hijackers.
Democrats shamefully tried to strip the provision out of homeland security legislation President Bush just signed. It took a former Democrat Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman to come to the rescue of passengers who report suspicious activity aboard flights.
After the measure appeared dead, Lieberman last week stepped in with GOP Sen. Susan Collins to adjust some language and move it safely out of conference.
Then suddenly on Tuesday, lawyers for the six imams removed from the flight filed a motion in federal court to drop passengers from their discrimination complaint. (US Airways crew and police are still named in the suit).

Some say they no longer call them John Does, but call them by names instead.
That's not dropping the suit.
I thought the lastest was that the suit against the people was dropped, but the suit against the airlines, etc. was going forward.
I would LOVE to see the passengers SUE the IMAMS for DISTRESS!
Thinks that make you go hmmmmmm.
Apparently DemocRATS see noticing the fact that all the 9/11 terrorists were Middle Eastern Muslims as a greater threat to the nation than the terrorists themselves. I see DemocRATS as a threat to the nation.
Darnit... I thought they were going to say that John Doe was going to return with a new season, this time fighting terrorism.
