Nope, you just can’t make this stuff up:
U.S. sponsors Islamic convention

The Justice Department is co-sponsoring a convention held by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) — an unindicted co-conspirator in an ongoing federal terrorist funding case — a move that is raising concerns among the Justice’s rank and file.
Justice lawyers have objected to the affiliation with ISNA, fearing it will undermine the case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in Dallas.
“There is outrage among lawyers that the Department of Justice is funding a group named as a co-conspirator in a terrorist financing case,” said a Justice lawyer who spoke to The Washington Times on the condition of anonymity.
According to an e-mail from Susana Lorenzo-Giguere, acting deputy chief of the Voting Rights Division, the sponsorship will involve sending government lawyers to man a booth for the Labor Day weekend event in Illinois.
“This is an important outreach opportunity, and a chance to reach a community that is at once very much discriminated against, and very wary of the national government and its willingness to protect them,” Mrs. Lorenzo-Giguere said in an e-mail obtained by The Washington Times.
“It would be a great step forward to break through those barriers. And Chicago is lovely this time of year,” Mrs. Lorenzo-Giguere said.
Yeah, Giguere, just lovely. I fired this e-mail off to the DOJ:
Hello, ARE YOU PEOPLE NUTS?!?
Why in the hell are you sponsoring a co-conpirator in the funding of terrorist acts? The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) along with CAIR, is a U.S.-based Hamas front.
The spokesperson for your “Voting Rights Divison” Susana Lorenzo-Giguere, is one of the biggest ditzes on the planet. Her comment is indicative of someone who is totally oblivious to the threat posed by groups she thinks deserve “protection”.
Well, I certainly HOPE there’s discrimination. They represent an extremist ideology, hellbent on transforming the world into a Caliphate. I deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom to fight against some of the very enemy you’re sponsoring. Tell me, wasn’t 9/11 enough of a warning for you? Will it take another catastophic attack to wake you people out of your politically correct coma? CAIR and INSA are TERRORIST conspirators. Stop aiding and abetting terrorist conspirators. DO YOUR JOB as the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE and protect the law-abiding citizens of the U.S.
Hint: That doesn’t include INSA.
With government agencies like this, who the hell needs enemies?
