OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau is being accused of "intellectual dishonesty" for visiting a Montreal-area mosque the U.S. military reportedly considers an al-Qaida recruitment centre.

The Al Sunnah Al-Nabawiah mosque sits in Trudeau's Quebec riding.

In April, the New York Times published it among a list of others found in classified military documents as places where "al-Qaida members were recruited, facilitated or trained."
