U.S. Rep. Myrick has American Muslims wary

A year ago, North Carolina's U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick was appointed to the House Intelligence Committee, a prestigious post she had long sought. Myrick, a Republican, contends that extremists are working their way into U.S. Muslim communities, infiltrating government institutions and influencing American citizens to attack their own country. Her activism earns plaudits from some conservatives — but criticism from Muslim constituents who fear that her tone endangers a community 3 million strong and deeply embedded in the nation's fabric.
