“IPT Report on Census Lease Prompts Inquiries”
by IPT News May 20, 2010 at 3:11 pm
SNIPPET: “Two members of Congress want the General Services Administration (GSA) to explain what research, if any, was done before signing a $582,000 lease with a Virginia mosque that law enforcement officials say has been the subject of numerous terror-financing investigations.
The letters to GSA Administrator Martha Johnson from U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa and Senator Susan Collins follow an Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) story disclosing the 2008 lease for a Census Bureau office, and the law enforcement assessments of the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center.
Records from the Department of Homeland Security obtained by the IPT indicate the mosque was “operating as a front for Hamas operatives in U.S.,” and “has been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing.””
