Debate on FBI use of informants in mosques

Recently, several news stories have made it more than clear that the FBI is planting informants in mosques around the U.S. to spy on fellow worshipers. There’s the case of the mosque informant who claims the FBI failed to pay him for spying on mosques in Southern California and also that of the homegrown terrorist plot in New York, that was avoided thanks to the year-long collaboration of an informant.

FBI Director Mueller has asserted that the FBI will continue to use informants in places of worship to advance its work in the areas of counterterrorism and counterintelligence. Understandably, the thought that your holy sanctum has been infiltrated by FBI spies who are being paid to report back on your activities must be rather off-putting. But on the other hand, if you’ve got nothing to hide…the work these spies are doing could save the lives of your neighbors, your children’s friends, etc.
