Not Shocking At All: Obama’s Snooping Excludes Mosques, Missed Boston Bombers

Posted by on Jun 13, 2013 at 8:07 am

In Obama’s mind he can’t offend anyone. Except for his political enemies, of course. Another day, another poke in the eye to decent, law-abiding Americans.

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. 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.

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.

And if your a Christian in the military your so-called commander-in-chief has a message: Fuck you.

The Obama Administration “strongly objects” to a proposed amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act on Wednesday that would have protected the religious rights of soldiers – including evangelical Christian service members who are facing growing hostility towards their religion.

The amendment was authored by Rep. John Fleming, R-La. It would have “required the Armed Forces to accommodate ‘actions and speech’ reflecting the conscience, moral, principles or religious beliefs of the member.”

The Obama Administration said the amendment would have a “significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.”

    Does this snooping also exclude Churches and Synogogues? If so, it might still stink, but it isn’t actionable. If, however, it ONLY excludes Mosques, hang it around Obama’s neck and make him own it.

    People are already hacked off about the surveillance, if it comes out that only Mosques are protected? It won’t be pretty, and will only add more wood to the fire.

    And “conservatives” like John Bolton are calling Snowden the traitor.

    Not only did they not stop the Boston bombing, they didn’t stop Nidal Hasan’s terrorism at Ft. Hood, they didn’t prevent the guy that used the SPLC map to shoot up an FRC (I think) office, they didn’t prevent what happened in Benghazi, they didn’t prevent the undie bomber from getting on a plane…

    And they don’t track mosques? I’m sure they don’t track Democrats either.

    Where is the name Obama from. Wasn’t there some talk of this a long time ago. I’m sure it’s not Irish!

    It’s almost like 0bama is actively fighting Christians and aiding muslims while lying about it all the time.

    See taqiyya and do the math.
