Rep. Peter King plans to begin hearings on March 10 to investigate the "radicalization of the American Muslim community," allegedly with the aim of shining a light on the supposed failure of America's Muslim communities to cooperate with law enforcement officials investigating terrorist plots. His star witness is Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a physician and former U.S. Navy medical officer with no background in law enforcement or public policy. What Jasser lacks in expertise, he makes up for in ties to right-wing media figures, appearances in documentaries that have been rejected by PBS and the New York Police Department, and a willingness to call Muslim civil rights groups with which he disagrees "fronts" for the Muslim Brotherhood.
