ACLU Refuses Grant From United Way Because It Won't Comply With Anit-Terrorism Restrictions

They've similarly refused grants from the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations for similar reasons.

Kind of unbelievable, but it's not quite as bad as it seems. The United Way requires that it assert it not be "involved" with anyone on the government's terrorist watch list, and, of course, that's half of the ACLU's business lately.

Really, they couldn't not be "involved with" anyone suspected of terrorism -- defending them, filing habeas petitions, etc. -- and continue doing their job of helping the terrorists win keeping a keen vigil over all our civil liberties.

Okay, that little bit of snark aside, that's what the ACLU does. It defends the indefensible. Terrorists, Nazis, what have you. So I guess this one I get.
