Muslim-American Rep. Keith Ellison to testify at Rep. King's hearings

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) will be holding hearings on the radicalization of Muslim-Americans Thursday, but critics say the hearings are putting Islam on trial.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim-American elected to Congress, has said the hearings unfairly target American Muslims. He will testify at Thursday's hearings.  Rep. Ellison talks to American Morning's Kiran Chetry.

    Peter King seems to have acquired that strange Conservative disease that like SARS has struck north of the border.

    In Canada the Conservatives have proved to their satisfaction that crime is not declining because it is not being reported. How they count these unreported crimes is somewhat of a mystery, but it is sufficient for conservatives to spend billions on new prisons.

    Mr.King is out to irrefutably prove what he already thinks by refusing to call witnesses or evidence which he thinks won't support his convictions.

    did I say SARS? More like avian swine flu or chicken pox !
