Of course the ACLU is jumping to the defense of "unindicted co-conspirators," the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) -- see background: Hamas at the Inauguration, and Robert Spencer's piece about Ingrid Mattson's appearance: Obama selects a Muslim with ties to Hamas to pray at the inauguration.

I have my own issues with the potential overuse of the "unindicted co-conspirator" thing, but of course, the ACLU goes too far:

...The following can be attributed to Hina Shamsi, staff attorney with the ACLU National Security Project:

"There is absolutely no direct evidence that ISNA has any ties to terrorist organizations, including Hamas, and any implication to the contrary is nothing but guilt by association created by the U.S. government through its illegal and false accusations. In fact, after the government made its original public smear, it admitted to ISNA's lawyers in private that the government has no evidence of wrongdoing by the organization...

Odd. What's this:

That's a $10,000 check from NAIT (ISNA and NAIT are affiliated [edit: According to a source, NAIT is ISNA's financial apparatus.]) made payable to Mousa Abu Marzook, who went from being a big Hamas fundraiser with ties to the Holy Land Foundation, to being the current Deputy Chairman of the Hamas Political Bureau in Syria.

That's from the comments at this IndyMedia thread, where there's also a revealing PDF of other evidence.

The ACLU is on the other side.

The ACLU vs USS Cole bombing plotter, here.

The ACLU does not care about the evidence against al-Nashiri. Its there with-out the torture. I know. This fanatic helped to murder our son. I have made getting justice for these fanaitics my life now for over 8 years. There is more than enough evidence. But all they want is to give Bush a black eye, at the expense of letting a know killer back into society. Insanity.
Remember the Cole!

Mr. Swenchonis, may God Bless you and your family and may you find justice for your son Gary and his shipmates.

I wonder why there isn't an ACLU to DEFEND America, to litigate FOR America against its enemies.

People remember that the ACLU worked to help nazis march in Skokie Illinois a town populated by Jews, some of whom are survivors of the Holocaust.

I remember the USS Cole.

"Syme: It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. You wouldn't have seen the [Newspeak] Dictionary 10th edition, would you Smith? It's that thick. [illustrates thickness with fingers] The 11th Edition will be that [narrows fingers] thick. Winston Smith: So, The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect? Syme: The secret is to move from translation, to direct thought, to automatic response. No need for self-discipline. Language coming from here [the larynx], not from here [the brain]" -1984 (film)
