Snooping Mosques in U.S. Off Limits to NSA & FBI-Reported to be Truth!

Snooping Mosques in U.S. Off Limits to NSA & FBI-Reported to be Truth!

Summary of eRumor:

This is a forwarded email that alleges that the National Security Agency (NSA) has a policy against spying on mosques in the country.
 

The Truth:

The NSA and FBI have a policy not to spy on mosques in the U.S. after the FBI was sued by the Council on Islamic Affairs and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for “allegedly violating the civil rights of Muslims in Los Angeles by hiring an undercover agent to infiltrate and monitor mosques there.”  This according to a June 12, 2013 editorial in the Investors Business Daily.

The editorial alleged that prior to the exclusion of mosques “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.”

TruthOrFiction.Com has contacted the NSA for comment and we are still awaiting a response.
