Bush League Says Targeting Mosques Doesn't Target Muslims

Just how stupid and hypocritical can W and his Bush League minions get?
U.S. Says It Didn't Target Muslims
Mosques Among Sites Monitored For Radiation

Faced with angry complaints, U.S. officials yesterday defended an anti-terrorism program that secretly tested radiation levels around the country -- including at more than 100 Muslim sites in the Washington area -- and insisted that no one was targeted because of his or her faith.

One official knowledgeable about the program explained that Muslim sites were included because al Qaeda terrorists were considered likely to gravitate to Muslim neighborhoods or mosques while in the United States.
Then there's this gem. The "Justice" Department claims it is unconstitutional for the judiciary to rule against him:
U.S. Defends Conduct in Padilla Case
Supreme Court Asked To Overrule 4th Circuit

A federal appeals court infringed on President Bush's authority to run the war on terror when it refused to let prosecutors take custody of "enemy combatant" Jose Padilla, the Justice Department said yesterday, as it urged the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene.
The Justice Department brief said the 4th Circuit had mischaracterized the events of Padilla's incarceration and engaged in "an unwarranted attack on the exercise of Executive discretion." Prosecutors accused the court of going so far as to "usurp" Bush's authority as the nation's commander-in-chief and his government's "prosecutorial discretion."
Apparently the Bush League argues it is unconstitutional to place any limits on the President's authority.
