Claim: FBI Planting Spies in U.S. Mosques
Oh-oh. The FBI has pissed off some Muslim groups here in America. Seems to me if Muslim clerics would SERIOUSLY preach peace, brotherhood and tolerance to their followers (and to other radical Muslim clerics) the FBI wouldn’t find a need to recruit informants from the congregation.
I’m all about separation of church and state – but I want my FBI on the inside of potentially criminal enterprises.
Ten U.S. Muslim organizations threatened this week to cease working with the FBI, citing “McCarthy-era tactics” by the agency, including efforts to covertly infiltrate California mosques. The groups claim the FBI has sent undercover agents posing as worshippers into mosques, pressured Muslims to become informants, labeled civil rights advocates as criminals and spread misinformation.
The FBI declined to comment on specific allegations but called the proposed move unproductive.via FBI planting spies in U.S. mosques, Muslim groups say – CNN.com.
Okay with you that the FBI does this? I mean, I guess they’ve been doing….wait! Without FBI confirmation how do we really know they’re doing it……!?
