AP: Ex-NBA Star's Mosque Named Probe

WASHINGTON - A mosque established and funded by basketball star Hakeem Olajuwon gave more than $80,000 to charities the government later determined to be fronts for the terror groups al-Qaida and Hamas, according to financial records obtained by The Associated Press.

Olajuwon told the AP he had not known of any links to terrorism when the donations were made, prior to the government's crackdown on the groups, and would not have given the money if he had known.

A Treasury Department spokeswoman, Molly Millerwise, declined to discuss Olajuwon's contributions but said, "In many cases donors are being unwittingly misled by the charities."


Damn. calamityjon, if you ever DO have a daughter named Brooklyn Rose, here's her sidekick/best friend...

Also, you know how Wal-Mart is always saying "It's not that we're ANTI-union; we would never interfere with the establishment of a union. It's just that our employees don't WANT unions." Yeah, well, not surprisingly, bullshit.
