Another name has been added to the mystery list of witnesses for Congressman Peter King’s hearing on Muslim radicalization – Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va.).
The Virginia Republican declined today to comment, but his office confirmed that the longtime human rights activist will speak at the controversial hearing about the rise of extremism among a small handful of American Muslims.
Wolf is well-known for his work advocating on behalf of persecuted religious minorities overseas, particularly Christians, as well as Muslims, Baha’is and others. He also wrote the legislation in 1998 that created the National Commission on Terrorism. He currently is chair of the subcommittee that oversees the budget of the Justice Department and the FBI.
