Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was booked as the keynote speaker for an Islamist event on May 30. The event honored Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who rose to prominence as the former leader of the "Ground Zero Mosque" project.
Rogers represents the 8th district in Michigan, which includes Dearborn --- an Islamist stronghold in America.
Frank Gaffney, President of the Center for Security Policy and Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy under the Reagan Administration, was the first to bring attention to the matter. He wrote a letter to Rep. Rogers asking him to cancel his appearance at the event.
