The Islamophobia manifested in the attacks on mosques around the country is being nurtured by a government campaign to manufacture US terror suspects and subject the most vulnerable youth in the African American and Muslim-American community to agents provocateur and frame-ups. A cutting edge organization* is gathering the stories, refuting the lies, and defending the innocent victims of what the government euphemistically calls "Preemptive Prosecution." (See below)
Get the facts and find out what you can do to help.

Following 9/11 the FBI and Justice Department indicated that they were operating under a new paradigm of preventing terrorist attacks before they occurred. This paradigm suggested that charges could be brought against people who they suspected might commit crimes in order to obtain convictions before any crimes actually occurred. Such prosecutions seem in fact to have occurred and it appears that completely innocent Muslims have been convicted and sent away for long prison sentences based only on suspicion and concocted charges. In this web site we propose to examine the US post-9/11 terrorism prosecutions and determine whether in each case there was substantial evidence of criminality or simply evidence unfairly concocted and/or twisted to convict innocent Muslims.
