Basically this diary wants to call your attention to an excellent, but as yet not well known editorial, in the June 12, 2013 Investor’s Business Daily.
Have you ever heard of the Sensitive Operations Review Committee in the justice Department?
…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. No more surveillance or undercover sting operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.
Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.
We do know the panel was set up under pressure from Islamist groups who complained about FBI stings at mosques. Just months before the panel’s formation, the Council on American-Islamic Relations teamed up with the ACLU to sue the FBI for allegedly violating the civil rights of Muslims in Los Angeles by hiring an undercover agent to infiltrate and monitor mosques there.
(My emphasis above.)
Note how much influence CAIR has on this administration! Any doubts about BIG BRObama leaning over backward – or maybe leaning forward – to accommodate Islamic groups should now be buried!
So could the F.B.I. have thwarted the Brothers Tsarnaev before they bombed the crowds in Boston?
One of the Muslim bombers made extremist outbursts during worship, yet because the mosque wasn’t monitored, red flags didn’t go off inside the FBI about his increasing radicalization before the attacks.
