An Analysis of the Ideological Capture of an Institution, Expressed Through Interpretive Dance | Main | Ann Coulter Has Some Minor Reservations About Comprehensive Amnesty

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) Subpoenas the NSA's Phone-Record Captures of the White House & IRS

If Obama has nothing to hide he has nothing to fear, said Stockman.

I mean, you can trust Rep. Stockman with the information. He's With The Government (TM).

Now of course the NSA will refuse and a liberal judge will back them up on that. But it will be interesting to hear their reasons for refusing -- are they claiming a conspiracy to target Americans isn't a strong enough reason for the records? The whole process may also reveal exactly what these records are for.

In sum, this is just wonderful.

More: Lots of news on the NSA today. An accused robber wants Obama to order the NSA to release its records on him, to prove his alibi.

More seriously: A writer in IBD claims that mosques are specifically exempt from the FBI surveillance, while all other Americans' records are sucked up into the memory banks in Utah. The article claims that mosques' records are ordered to not be surveilled or infiltrated with undercover operatives, except in accordance with an order from an oversight body:

"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."

That is huge if true. And, incidentally, I'd bet real money it is true.
