10-point plan

Santa Barbara News-Press reported U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick wants America to ''wake up'' and stop allowing terrorism to proliferate - and if that means revoking the passport of a former U.S. president or examining the preaching of prison chaplains, that's what she's prepared to do. The Republican from Charlotte, N.C., on Friday released a list of 10 items she hopes will help peel back the layers on how radical elements of Islam might be infiltrating the military, school rooms and other elements of society.... Here is Myrick's 10-point plan to tackle threats posed by radical elements of Islam:

  1. Investigate all military chaplains endorsed by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was imprisoned for funding a terrorist organization.
  2. Investigate all prison chaplains endorsed by Alamoudi.
  3. Investigate the selection process of Arabic translators working for the Pentagon and the FBI.
  4. Examine the non-profit status of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
    And the backgrounds of all of its key leaders.
  5. Make it an act of sedition or solicitation of treason to preach or publish materials that call for the deaths of Americans.
    Good idea.
  6. Audit sovereign wealth funds in the United States.
  7. Cancel scholarship student visa program with Saudi Arabia until they reform their text books, which she claims preach hatred and violence against non-Muslims.
  8. Restrict religious visas for imams who come from countries that don't allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy.
    Good idea.
  9. Cancel contracts to train Saudi police and security in U.S. counterterrorism tactics.
  10. Block the sale of sensitive military munitions to Saudi Arabia.
