Obama's Snooping Excludes Mosques, Missed Boston Bombers
IBD ^

Posted on 06/12/2013 10:54:33 PM PDT by chessplayer

Homeland Insecurity: 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.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents.

What’s up is down, what’s down is up.

Yep, I have officially slipped into the Twilight Zone.

It’s like the plot for a really bad novel.

Homeland Insecurity: After Boston, The Struggle Between Liberty and Security

But the new guidelines also featured added restrictions on an especially sensitive area of FBI counterterrorism work: mosques. Under the new rules, agents could no longer enter a religious organization without special new approval—in some cases directly from FBI headquarters. Moreover, according to still-classified sections of the new rules made available to Time, any plan to go undercover in a place of worship—a tactic employed by the bureau after Sept. 11, 2001, that drew protests from Muslim Americans and at least one lawsuit from a California mosque—would now need special approval from a newly established oversight body at Department of Justice headquarters called the Sensitive Operations Review Committee, or SORC.

Karl Rove was on Greta tonight talking about what a traitor Snowden is and how wonderful obama is for protecting us by spying on us. I got so disgusted I turned it off. Rove might as well go over to MSNBC.

Both Fox and NBC are members of the Council on Foreign Relations.

They have a different "branding" to appeal to both sides of the "political spectrum", but they're ultimately selling the same product: globalism.

  Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents... 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

  Jihadists aren't the real enemy of the current administration. Their real enemy consists of people who support the US Constitution, free markets, private property rights, etc. Their real enemy consists of people who want to live in freedom.

“special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.”

I will bet anybody on this site any amount of money you are willing to part with that there is at least one mohammedan on this panel with ties to terrorism in his past or present.

Obama can use the NSA to find out what we are all about.

We can use the way the NSA targets to find out what Obama is all about.

They just have a suspicion and they could do what was called assessments of that situation. In 2011, President Obama revised those guidelines one more time. He actually expanded them in a lot of ways, now these assessments could include database searches of people using public records and things like that.

But they actually pulled back a little on how the assessments could deal with religious communities and mosques and they set up this new committee to oversee that. (Sensitive Operations Review Committee, or SORC) It was part of a White House effort, a broader White House effort, to really build closer ties and cooperation with the Islamic community in the United States around these issues.

No need to spy on what you already know! By heart!

I bet they aren’t spying on any black churches or the black panthers.

But it’s all good because speaker Boehner just assured us that the “President outlined last week that these are important national security programs to help keep Americans safe and give us tools to help fight the terrorist threat we face” so obviously ignoring mosques is reasonable.

They're not spying on terrorists. They're spying on people who post pictures like this on FreeRepublic.

Of course it does. Anyone shocked by this isn’t paying attention. Sadly, that includes most Americans. Sigh.

Look at the bright side: Now people will have a snoop-free zone available if they need to communicate with someone. I wonder if the parking lots are off limits, or just the inside of the building...

Good luck getting into a mosque parking lot. They’re fortified with our tax dollars.

This is the Regime who has US Attorneys seeking to limit speech critical of Islam. Its not shocking this Regime won’t spy on Mosques. If they had the Boston Bombers may have been stopped and also the Ft Hood shooting.

Anyone who is overtly critical of what Snowden did...is just an Obama Supporter....that is exactly what they are doing.

And an Islamic Terrorist supporter also
