Charity Terrorists

Unnoticed amongst all the other Homeland Security impedimentia that has been imposed on the American public, there is now a requirement that all of the 10,000 charities that receive federal dollars must check their personnel against the government terrorist list. This seems to be similar to the list that is used to bar people like Senator Ted Kennedy and Cat Stevens from flying.

13 large charities are suing the government over this. "We are charities, not law enforcement agencies," said a spokesperson. Given the government's unimpressive track record screening terrorists, how do they expect anyone else to do a better job?
