The good news for Democratic Socialists is that Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) isn't registered with their caucus - unlike 30 of the other 41 members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). The bad news for the CBC is that Meeks has allegedly aided and abetted an ally of Osama bin Laden; if we were actually fighting an enemy we'd identify, Meeks would be getting tried for treason right now. Here's the tally so far. CBC has 42 members - 30 registered socialists, 1 traitor, and two members facing corruption trials.

Anyway, more on Meeks via the New York Post:
US Rep. Gregory Meeks scolded immigration officials for questioning a Muslim scholar whose nonprofits have been linked to financing terrorism.

The Queens Democrat contacted federal agencies -- finally appealing to then-Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff -- asking why Anwar Hajjaj faced "unwarranted scrutiny" when he returned to the United States from trips abroad through JFK Airport.

Meeks described Hajjaj as a "highly regarded" professor of Islamic studies who leads Friday Muslim prayers at the Capitol.

Meeks said Hajjaj was "a pioneer in distance-based learning of Islam" through the American Open University in Virginia, according to a copy of the Sept. 30, 2006, letter to Chertoff, which was obtained by The Post under a Freedom of Information Act request.
That's not all.
The Post has learned Hajjaj also headed the Taibah International Aid Association, a charity that has been accused of funding Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda. The group was co-founded by Abdullah A. bin Laden, Osama bin Laden's nephew, who has been investigated for his ties to groups that have funded al Qaeda and Hamas.
Perhaps one of the more interestingly telling excerpts from the article is this one:
Hajjaj, 65, told The Post that he was routinely harassed and sometimes missed flights when he traveled to and from Saudi Arabia for the pilgrimage to Mecca.

"It was an awful experience under the Bush administration," he said. "Now under Obama, I have no complaints."
Not that they'll care much but there's another possible explanation for those on the left who can't understand why 20% of Americans think Obama is a Muslim.

As for Meeks, he should jump to the front of the line, leap-frogging both Rangel and Waters when it comes to trials.
