Here is the explanation of why the NSA
and FBI doesn't have info about these people
No Snooping Permitted....?
The source of this article is an Investor's Business Daily editorial.
How can they say that they need NSA spying on all of us and then turn
around and make an exclusion like this?
Guess what Obama's NSA snooping excludes... Mosques.
Now this makes perfect sense doesn't it? Obama's NSA snooping exempts
one part of America from their spying. Muslim mosques. You couldn't make
this crap up if you tried. Mosques being off limits by the NSA isn't
something that was started in the Bush administration either. Exempting
Mosques from the NSA began in October 2011 and they are also off-limits
to FBI agents. Kind of defeats the purpose of "protecting America" by
snooping when 95% of terrorism in this country arises from Muslims.
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
Obama's Snooping Excludes Mosques, Missed Boston Bombers

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.
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.
One of the Muslim bombers made extremist outbursts during worship, yet
because the mosque wasn't monitored, red flags didn't wave inside the
FBI about his increasing radicalization before the attacks.
This is particularly disturbing in light of recent independent surveys
of American mosques, which reveal some 80% of them preach violent jihad
or distribute violent literature to worshippers. (See
http://worldmediamonitoring.com/islamterrorism/ for more on this.)
What other five-alarm jihadists are counterterrorism officials missing
right now, thanks to restrictions on monitoring the one area on which
they should be focused?
