AP reports that residences in Queens were raided by a joint terrorism task force.
Questions I can think of:
- Were any wiretaps used? If so, did the ACLU pre-approve their usage?
- Was any Muslim involved? If so, was CAIR invited to make sure nothing offensive was done?
- If it was a task force on terrorism, was this related to the 9/12 march (since those are the only sorts of people Obama regards as terrorists)?
Law enforcement agents raided residences in New York City on Monday as part of a terrorism investigation, and began briefing Congress about the probe.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne confirmed that searches were conducted in the borough of Queens by agents of a joint terrorism task force. He would not discuss the matter further.
Separately, federal authorities started briefing a series of senior lawmakers in Congress about the case.
