The Whole Scoop on the Holy Land Foundation

The Los Angeles Times today corrects:

Obama and Muslims: An article in Sunday's Section A about President Obama's efforts to reach out to the Muslim world reported that federal prosecutors had accused the Holy Land Foundation of Texas of funneling more than $12 million to Hamas. The story should have gone on to say that the Muslim charity and five of its former leaders were convicted in November of federal charges of funneling millions of dollars to the Palestinian militant group.

Why stop now? As long as the Times is fessing up about the legal troubles of certain extremist Muslims in America, isn't it about time editors finally disclose important biographical information about Mahmoud Abu Marzook, a repeat Op-Ed contributor who was indicted in the United States in 2004 as a co-conspirator on racketeering and money-laundering charges in connection with activities on behalf of Hamas?
