NYPD: Muslim Spying Generated No Leads

I'd claim BS and political correctness on this one. Money laundering to support Hammas/Al Queda/Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR? Nope, I'm sure none of that was going on...they make their money from....Hammas/Al Queda/Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR supporters.

I'm sorry so many people lie due to worries about racism/muslim bias charges (psst...muslim isn't a race.)
