It is nice to see the names of
both Senators Clinton and Schumer among those voting for passage of a
law to block what is being called the "John Doe" lawsuits. The measure
was triggered by a lawsuit, backed by the Council on American Islamic Relations, that included a complaint against U.S. Airways passengers who had alerted authorities of suspicious activities of a group of imams on a flight out of Minneapolis. The threat to go after the passengers in court was written about by Katherine Kersten of the Star Tribune and picked up and nursed as an issue by such Web logs as powerlineblog.com and michellemalkin.com.
New York Sun
The Washington Post credits Republican pressure (and Joe Lieberman) for inclusion of protection of "John Does" in a security bill. Bloggers and talk show hosts should also be given credit.
