Abuse and misuse[edit]

A "front" is a somewhat vague term which is easy to abuse and misuse. The mere fact that an organization or some members of an organization supports terrorists doesn't make it a front. A front is an organization that exists only to conceal activity in support of terrorists and that pretends to be engaged in some entirely unrelated and benign activity so that it can avoid the attention of law enforcement. The CIA, CAIR and political groups associated with terrorists and insurgents are not really fronts and I've removed them from the article. --Lee Hunter 17:53, 16 January 2006 (UTC) Terrorists blow stuff up! They are Amish descendants

I also removed Al Barakaat since othervise we would have to add things like SunTrust Banks and it would get silly. // Liftarn

Non-Islamist terrorist fronts[edit]

This article only seems to cover Islamist terrorists. What about Direct Action Against Drugs, for example, which was a front for the Provisional IRA? GCarty 18:28, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
