Liberal news media and Democrats fault NYPD anti-terrorist surveillance program.

Ever since the Islamic inspired attack on 9-11 the New York City Police Department has been conducting the most intense surveillance program of any U.S. city on its Muslim population. It was the Associated Press that uncovered a lengthy training manual developed by the NYPD to assess the dangers. Here is a link to the 90-page report published on the NYPD web site NYPDSHIELD.

Yet, in a story published today, the Associated Press blames the NYPD for the ineffectiveness of the program even though in the opening paragraphs they acknowledge that two radicalized Muslim terrorists came out of mosques located in NYC.
NYPD's spying programs produced mixed results


NEW YORK (AP) - When New York undercover officers and informants were infiltrating a mosque in Queens in 2006, they failed to notice the increasingly radical sentiments of a young man who prayed there. Police also kept tabs on a Muslim student group at Queens College, but missed a member's growing anti-Americanism.

Those two men, Najibullah Zazi at the mosque and Adis Medunjanin at the school, would go on to be accused of plotting a subway bombing that officials have called the most serious terrorist threat to the United States since Sept. 11, 2001.

Ever since The Associated Press began revealing New York Police Department spying programs on mosques, student groups, Muslim businesses and communities, those activities have been stoutly defended by police and supporters as having foiled a list of planned attacks.

While the AP story mixes the NYPD's accomplishments with mistakes it clearly paints a picture that something is very wrong. The story is also published on Fox News at this link:
Buried down in this story is the revelation that Democrats in Congress have been very much against the NYPD program, most likely because it has been so effective.
After House Democrats circulated a letter signed by 34 members of Congress recently asking for a federal review of the NYPD's intelligence programs, King, the New York Republican, accused them of smearing the police department.
The Justice Department under Eric Holder repeatedly has sidestepped questions about what it thinks about the NYPD programs revealed by the AP. Some Democrats in Congress have asked prosecutors to investigate. Since August, the department has said only that it is reviewing those requests.
While the U.S. Dept. of Justice has successfully prosecuted the terrorist funding trial of the Holy Land Foundation and proved in Federal Court in Dallas, Texas that CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, was part of the Muslim groups funneling charitable donations to the Hamas terrorist group, Barack Hussein Obama has approved of several Muslim appointments to his White House staff and to the Dept. of Homeland Security.
