CAIR spying on national security committees?

According to The Hill:

Four House Republicans are accusing a Muslim advocacy group of trying to plant spies on Capitol Hill.

Republican members of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus said the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) have tried to plant “spies” within key national-security committees in order to shape legislative policy.
CAIR has responded by accusing its accusers of being hate-filled anti-Muslim racists.

First, the issue is not anti-Muslim, it is anti-CAIR. There is a difference.

Second, the issue has absolutely nothing to do with racism since Muslims are from all races.

Third, rather than issuing an intelligent response by attempting to allay concerns, CAIR responded like a child who, when caught doing wrong, lashes out in anger blaming someone else.

In my opinion, CAIR's response alone is enough reason to proceed with the investigation.
