WBTV Charlotte; We continue to receive lots of emails and responses tonight about our 3-part series focusing on a local website, which promotes Al-Qaeda.
The 22-year old north Charlotte Muslim man running it walks the line of Free Speech. Samir Khan is not doing anything illegal. He is showing pictures of dead Americans and promoting groups at war with our country. SEE UPDATE..

In this third story, WBTV's Molly Grantham sits down with U-S Representative Sue Myrick. Samir Khan lives in her district. She's also the leader of the Anti-Terrorism Caucus in Washington D.C. One hundred twenty two Congresspeople are a part of that caucus, both Democrats and Republicans.
Myrick has some strong words about why we - all Americans - need to wake up.

"Come on America! Let's talk about it," says Republican Sue Myrick. "Let's stop being politically correct. Let's put it on the table!" The U.S. Representative says she wants to "put on the table," the fact terrorists are infiltrating American society, often through the Internet. "I mean, they are using the internet for training... Al-Qaeda is, other groups, Hezbollah, the rest of them," says Myrick.
"You know, if we are able to eliminate some of the key leaders of Al-Qaeda, it isn't the same anymore because they are still there in perpetuity on their tapes. They're still doing the training. They're telling people how to do everything they want them to do. They're recruiting people on the internet."
Myrick says she is familiar with the Samir Khan "situation". Myrick represents North Carolina's 9th District, which is where he lives. She says she has known about Khan's pro-Al-Qaeda site for awhile. She is also aware of what we first aired in Tuesday night's story: Khan was working at the south Charlotte branch of Convergys Corporation.

"How surprised were you to hear Samir Khan was working at a company with a governmental contract?", Grantham asked the Congresswoman. "Well, not that surprised," Myrick replied. "Because this is a very big problem."
To be clear, when Myrick said "this", she meant the general issue of terrorism is a very big problem. As we mentioned in Tuesday's story, Convergys tells us Khan had no dealings with government contracts or client information.
The company spokesperson also said the branch Khan worked didn't deal with government contracts. Capitol Hill is aware of Khan. The north Charlotte blogger spoke with the New York Times last fall under the condition they hide his face for their online video. At the time he told them, "The American government is losing this war. And the Muslims are winning this war."
When we recently asked him about his statements to the Times, he stood by them. "If it's on tape, then take it as is. You don't need my explanation," he said. In that same interview he also told WBTV he is not helping recruit for Al-Qaeda, or for terrorism. He didn't answer the question on whether he was anti-American.
Myrick won't say whether or not her office is investigating Khan... saying she's not going to talk specifically about an individual.
But she does say - emphasize even - how much she wants to get dialogue going in this country about the realities of terrorism. Things, she says, like an enemy of America using the web to promote Jihad on an English-speaking site.
That can be a calculated move by radicals.
"They are making a special effort now to recruit blond-haired, blue-eyed Americans, like you, who don't fit the mold, very frankly," she told Grantham. "It's easier to infiltrate that way." Infiltrate while following the laws of the U.S. Constitution. "They aren't doing anything, illegal," says Myrick.
"But they know that, don't they?" asked Grantham. "Yes they do." "They walk the fine line." "They do," Myrick agreed. "And they use our Constitution against us?"
"Yes," said Myrick, "They use our Constitution against us and they know just how far they can go."
Rep. Myrick Unveils “Wake Up America” Agenda
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) released her “Wake Up America” agenda. Rep.

4). Will call for the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) 501(c)(3) non-profit status which restricts “lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.”
5). Introduce a bill to make the preaching, publication, or distribution of materials that call for the death of American citizens, attacks on the United States Government or Armed Forces, or the financing of the means and/or operations to accomplish these acts, acts of sedition and/or solicitation of treason.
6). Will call on the Government Accountability Office to conduct an audit to verify the total sovereign wealth fund investment in the United States.
7). Will attempt to cancel scholarship student visa program with Saudi Arabia until they reform their textbooks.
8). Will introduce a bill to restrict R-1/R-2 religious visas for imams who come from countries that do not allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy.
9). Will introduce a bill to cancel contracts to train Saudi police and other security forces in US Counterterrorism tactics until the Saudi’s certify the prosecution of Al Qaeda financiers, like Yasin al-Kadi, and the detention of repatriated Guantanamo terrorists that keep being released into the general population after being “rehabilitated.”
10). Will introduce or sponsor a bill to block the sale of sensitive military munitions, especially Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs), to Saudi Arabia.
