While the government has been targeting and badgering conservative groups and illicitly collecting data on most American’s there is one group that is excused from the Obama administration’s blanket intrusion, profiling, and punishing policies:
Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.
According to IBD, “the names of the chairman, members and staff” of this group “are kept secret.”
Okay, benefit of the doubt, let’s say this is an attempt to specifically monitor and target based on sensitive information gathering regarding Muslims and Mosques. But if a more specific targeting is the purpose behind this special group why were so many red flags missed or ignored in the Boston Marathon case?
There’s something wrong here; it has the same smelly odor that surrounds the Fort Hood case.
Americans need to start asking the question, “Exactly who or what does this administration serve?”…cause it sure doesn’t seem like America, the safety of Americans, equality under the law, freedom, justice, privacy, religious freedom, or any number of other American values are the top concerns of our leadership.
Watch what they do not what they say. The list of egregious policies and actions just keeps growing.
