Pipes attacks USIP for going soft on terrorism

“The congressionally funded United States Institute of Peace will host an event today in Washington on reforming Islam, with a guest panelist who has threatened the United States and openly supported terrorist groups, Kenneth R. Timmerman claims.

Not unexpectedly, Daniel Pipes joins in the witch-hunt, accusing USIP of associating with groups “on the wrong side in the war on terrorism”. Pipes states: “I believe that President Bush appointed me to the USIP board in part to serve as a watchdog against militant Islamic groups. Unfortunately the management of USIP is not listening to my advice.”
