Political Influence Operation
Date: April 26, 2010
On April 26 CAIR issued a press release urging congressional sponsors to disinvite Rev. Franklin Graham from the National Day of Prayer event scheduled for May 6, 2010 at the Cannon House Office Building. CAIR National Legislative Director Corey Saylor referred to Graham as an “Islamophobe” bringing a “message of religious intolerance.”
- On June 1 the Center for Security Policy sent a letter to the Rev. Franklin Graham concerning CAIR’s unregistered foreign agent status, identifying their attempt to exclude Graham from the Pentagon prayer service as a foreign influence operation. A copy of the letter was also sent to Bureau Chief Heather Hunt of the Foreign Agents Registration Unit at the Department of Justice.
