"War On Terror" in the US
What has been the effect of the "war on terror" in the US? The effect has been devastating for American Muslims. In order to justify a "war on terror" and have Muslims viewed as waging a war against the US, many wrong arrests and false charges were levied against American Muslims by the government. These false charges and arrests were publicized widely and prominently in all the major news outlets. Upon trial more than 95% of the terror charges were dismissed. This vindication of Muslims received little to no publicity. The few remaining cases where Muslims were found guilty were cases involving charitable organizations and individuals helping Palestinians and sting operations where Muslims were set up by law enforcement agencies. This section will present articles dealing with the "war on terror" in the US.
