Have Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller ever met a currently practicing Muslim that meets their "all American" standards?

It seems like every practicing Muslim they talk about, even those born and bred here in America, is either an honor killer or has ties to terrorism... The only good Muslim is one who converted... or one who is dead.

You want to oppose extremists and terrorists?

But a Bush administration official who's Muslim?

Mosques and prayer spaces for Muslims serving in the United States Military, including inside the Pentagon?

These two and their followers are bigots of the worst kind.

Supposedly, there is a longer video of the full "conversation" between Spencer and Khan before Geller shows up (about 10 minutes). I'll add it when I see it's available...

UPDATE: The longer video, at just over 6 minutes (& oddly letterboxed, for some reason...):

It makes 'em all look kinda petty, if ya ask me... Lotta smoke, but virtually no flame. Hopefully if they ever do debate, they all find their way out of the third grade mentality, first.

That said, it doesn't acquit either Spencer or Geller on the bigotry of accusing virtually every Muslim they've ever spoken about of "ties to terrorism." I can't say for certain that they're wrong about Khan, in particular... ...though the guy was vetted by our government, under a Republican president. But that, and the fact that they seem to charge a whole lotta other Muslim Americans of the same sort of "ties," (or alternatively, support for, if not actual, honor killing) makes the charges kinda suspect... (It's almost as though they think Muslim Americans have divided loyalties... ...which is generally supposed to be some anti-Semitic attack on Jews...)

I can't vouch for the accuracy (any more than I can vouch for the accuracy of what Spencer/Geller have to say), but this is the allegation: Robert Spencer used to be a Communist | Spencer Watch
