Undercover surveillance in businesses in mosques New Jersey found out about it and they -- bit surprised that this was going on without their knowledge.
And now has been ruled that that they did nothing illegal right.
-- in fact this is a tremendous vindication for the NYPD it's a validation of all of they've been doing.
And actually -- that many people in Jersey didn't know what was happening -- former governor Cody -- we actually signed an agreement with the NYPD when they commit New Jersey originally.
Do you police chief -- know what knew about it and sort of other police around the state.

I really I think he's probably going to be a little bit more.
Notification and cooperation that's really old old -- just gonna refine that a bit.
As far as following leads this is good police work and as far as he's Muslim groups like care which by the way was an unindicted co conspirator.
In a major terrorist funding case.
It's always been that -- that -- crime was coming from a particular community.
Like when the Justice Department was going after the mafia they went Italian American community when was coming from the west -- that -- the Irish -- community.
This is just common sense and good police work.
And unfortunately while my united percent of Muslims are good Americans.
The Islamic terrorist threat is coming from the Muslim community.
And unfortunately there's not a cooperation on the from the Muslim community and the police are doing preemptive war to doing -- balance that's what good police work is all about.

Confirming at this stock to watch the CIA asset working for US intelligence you combine those that was just -- -- talk.
So much indicators that would given to Pakistan as to what we had done and who did it and that's why I'm saying the administration as a responsibility.
