Under Obama, mosques off-limits to FBI surveillance since 2011

While the government has been spying on your communications in the name of national security, mosques are off-limits to FBI surveillance because, well, that would be racial profiling.

A new editorial in Investor’s Business Daily ripped the Obama administration for the National Security Agency’s ability to monitor our communications while the FBI has been forced to jump through hoops to conduct investigations inside mosques.

Not mincing words, the editorial said:

The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

The article explained that after the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the American Civil Liberties Union sued the FBI “for allegedly violating the civil rights of Muslims in Los Angeles by hiring an undercover agent to pose a worshipper to monitor mosques there,” the special, high-level Sensitive Operations Review Committee with the Justice Department, must now give approval for monitoring mosques.

The editorial continued:

Before mosques were excluded from the otherwise wide domestic spy net the administration has cast, the FBI launched dozens of successful sting operations against homegrown jihadists — inside mosques — and disrupted dozens of plots against the homeland.

If only they were allowed to continue, perhaps the many victims of the Boston Marathon bombings would not have lost their lives and limbs. The FBI never canvassed Boston mosques until four days after the April 15 attacks, and it did not check out the radical Boston mosque where the Muslim bombers worshipped.

The bureau didn’t even contact mosque leaders for help in identifying their images after those images were captured on closed-circuit TV cameras and cellphones.

“What other five-alarm jihadists are counterterrorism officials missing right now, thanks to restrictions on monitoring the one area they should be monitoring?” the article concluded.

    I can hardly wait for the mosque to open a mile down the

    road from me. I have seen very few muslims in this area, so I guess they will import them.

    They can filter out conservatives and religious groups by the IRS but not use surveillance on mosques where they teach radical hate toward the "infidels." (anyone who is not muslim.)

  2. the reason is because obama is a lying lowlife radical scumbag asshole muslim bastard .we know he is by his family background and his book[dreams from my father by obama himself.] obama friends are all radical terrorists or commie and radical scumbag muslim asshole bastards . obama is out to destroy our country from within the country.never trust this scumbag asshole ever.

    Ok you have commented twice now on the FBI and there wrong doings of lustful acts. What does that have anything to do with US government refusing to surveil mosques while surveilling everyone else in the intrest of not profiling? I mean does it mean that you dont have confidence in the government to surveil anyone or are you saying that you agree that they shouldnt be allowed to surveil mosque because the cant be trusted to do their jobs correctly? If its the latter then why would should the be allowed to surveil any religious establishment? Why should the be allowed to surveil any female? But you cant not surveil women and not surveil men in a sense thats profiling. Please clarify what your point is if you have one.
