Federal officials notified law enforcement agencies Monday of a potential al-Qaida terrorist attack in which public buildings are targeted by suicide bombers.

Agent Robert Miranda took the witness stand Tuesday afternoon in the Hamas terror-financing trial of five former HLF officials. In addition to bringing speakers from overseas, Miranda said, HLF also arranged "conference calls" with speakers abroad to audiences in the United States. These calls included solicitations for contributions to HLF.

CAIR: Names Will Always Hurt You

The Investigative Project on Terrorism is among those who are critical of new guidelines discouraging the use of terms like "Islamist" and "jihad" when discussing terrorism and extremism that were issued earlier this year by the Department of Homeland Security and the National Counterterrorism Center.

While the agencies argue that the words may boost the popularity of terrorists among Muslim radicals, it's a bad idea to hide the motivations behind those who seek to attack the United States, or innocent people around the world.
