We now know that tea party affiliated groups and like-minded conservatives who tried to qualify for tax-exempt status with the IRS were singled out for extra scrutiny.
And while every phone call in the country and every computer keystroke is being monitored, we now learn that Muslim mosques are being singled out for no scrutiny at all.
According to an Investor’s Business Daily editorial today, mosques are off-limits. No more surveillance. No sting operations.
Since September 2011, such operations must be OK’d by a special secret panel.
“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.”
A recent survey of American mosques found 80 percent preach violent jihad or distribute violent literature.
But we can only profile conservatives and strip search grannies in wheel chairs at the airport. What a country!
