Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

The name is Faiz Khan and he helped found the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) with the head founder, Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf in 1997. Now, courtesy of some uncovered videos, it has been learned that there is yet another red flag when it comes to Rauf and the people around him. Faiz Khan appears in a video from 2005 in which he is speaking to an audience with a sign behind him that says, "EXPOSE the 9/11 Cover-Up."

Via the Investigative Project on Terrorism:
...a trove of videos and writings available on the Internet shows that a longtime partner of Rauf believes the 9/11 terror attacks were "an inside job" by U.S. government and corporate interests, the Investigative Project on Terrorism found.

Faiz Khan, a physician who claims to have been a first responder after the September 11 attacks, is a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and is on the advisory board of the Muslims for 9/11 Truth. In an essay on the Alliance's website, he argued that "the prime factor for the success of the criminal mission known as 9/11 did not come from the quarter known as 'militant Islam' although the phenomenon known as 'militant Islamic networks' may have played a partial role, or even a less than partial role - perhaps the role of patsy and scapegoat."

Khan also helped form the American Sufi Muslim Association in 1997 with Rauf, a group now known as the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA). ASMA and Rauf's Cordoba Initiative are leading the mosque effort in lower Manhattan.
So what, right? So he founded a group with Rauf and shares views many of the Ron Paul supporters have. Oh, well he also has led Friday prayers at Rauf's mosque according to IPT:
Khan has led Friday prayers at the Al Farah Mosque, where Rauf is the imam, for years. That practice continued at least through December – after the mosque proposal was unveiled -- when Khan was cited and photographed in an article in the German magazine Der Spiegel on the project.
It appears the longer this mosque controversy drags on, the bigger the conundrum Rauf seems to find himself in. Of course, the response from Rauf and Khan to these findings is about what you'd expect. Khan distances and Rauf doesn't respond.
Rauf and Daisy Khan did not respond to emails seeking comment. In an email received late Friday afternoon, Khan said he was no longer an ASMA officer and had not preached at Rauf's Al Farah mosque "for several years now." He indicated that he dropped out of the 9/11 truth movement to focus on his medical career. But his views have not changed:

"I am not sure what happened on 911, and as I have stated in articles, and other sources you may have come across - the 'official explanation' is demonstrably false...since multiple facets of it have been shown to be thus by independent investigators."
Khan then reportedly said he never discussed his theories about 9/11 with Rauf - despite leading prayers in Rauf's mosque apparently. This is reminiscent of Barack Obama saying he never heard Jeremiah Wright's racist rants against America despite spending 20 years in the church; it's simply not believable.
