BREAKING: FBI Receives This OUTRAGEOUS Punishment For Watching Muslims Near San Bernardino
With California and the entire nation for that matter still reeling from the San Bernardino terrorist attacks, a federal appeals court in California is considering whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) should be punished for doing surveillance on Muslims at the Islamic Center of Irvine which is located 55 miles away from the scene of the most recent massacre by radical jihadists in San Bernardino.
What in the hell is going on here? Why in God’s name should the FBI be ‘punished’ for doing their job? This is a simple case of liberal political correctness and falls into the category of “CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS.” In other words, it’s a complete crock of crap.
The Muslim terror front group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) filed the suit back in 2011 and are alleging that the “FBI collected extensive records about the religious practices of hundreds of Muslims who attended various southern California mosques. The records include video and audio recordings of prayers, discussion groups and religious lectures as well as social and cultural events.”
According to Judicial Watch, back in 2012 a federal court dismissed most of the lawsuit against the FBI because the judge agreed with the government that matters vital to national security would be disclosed if it went forward. Before ruling, the judge, Cormac J. Carney, reviewed classified information that was not made public. Attorneys representing the Muslims vowed to hold the FBI responsible for surveilling their community and abusing their constitutional rights. In a statement, they blasted the government for invoking state secrets privilege to dismiss the FBI’s “unlawful infiltration of mainstream mosques in southern California.” Muslim Americans were targeted for surveillance because of their religion, the lawyers assert.
Now, just weeks after the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 was executed in nearby San Bernardino, a federal appeals court is considering the case. This month the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in Pasadena, California which is situated in Los Angeles County about halfway between Irvine, which is in Orange County, and the site of this month’s attack in San Bernardino County. The proceedings lasted a little over an hour. One of the appellate court judges, Marsha Berzon, expressed doubts to Justice Department attorneys about the government’s state secret defense. The creed bans litigation that could unmask information involving national security. “I just am having real trouble seeing where the line is drawn in this very difficult situation we are in now,” Judge Berzon said.
It could be months before the court rules but the case could not have been revived at a worse time, especially in a venue so close to a recent attack by Islamic jihadists. Even a prominent and notoriously liberal federal lawmaker who represents the area, Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, has publicly admitted that a significant minority of Muslims support terrorism to establish an Islamic caliphate. Sanchez, who sits on the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Armed Services
