    From 1997 to 2004, Republican political strategist John Hancock was the executive director of the Missouri Republican Party.

Their findings were apparently positive, as Hancock has quietly began personally working members of the state committee.

Undercover Mosque, broadcast in January, featured footage shot at a number of mosques, including one at which a preacher praised the Taleban for killing British soldiers. Channel 4 said that the programme revealed how a message of hatred and segregation was being spread by some Islamic...
