To investigate whether the US government is being infiltrated by Muslim extremists and that this indeed.
This this action itself puts us and his security every risk I mean it's not good for us to be doing this.

They have actually.
-- agents the FBI is -- agents from dealing with -- from department's intelligence division on this what is the relationship between the FBI.
And the NYPD.
On this issue.
Well overall lately work together very well hand and the -- I think overall look seriously please.

When it comes to the NYPD.
Intelligence division has about David Cone of former CIA official.
They want Muller in fact PF PI directors issued instructions.
You have nothing to do -- wish him whatsoever and the reason is that -- -- believes that.
There methods are essentially -- jagr -- engaged in and the FBI namely.
Attrition expeditions -- gatherings have intelligence.
That never -- anywhere waste of tax prepare mining and violation of American rights.
What the intelligence division does is -- -- system mosque and and write -- license plate numbers you know.
And my book stores as well.
That's right and then just it's it's it's -- it's.
Because -- American values and undercuts corporation with Muslim community and it produces no leads according to the FBI.
-- -- taxpayer dollars as well as you point out.
So the FBI wants nothing to do this the NYPD those doing in any way they breaching the law and anyway are they doing things that the FBI itself.
Would be guilty of breaking -- -- -- if they did.
That's the anomaly here because the FBI.
Harrison's situation we're hearing and so exposed -- -- abuses of the appearance CIA.
-- -- -- -- Has been under very strict just aren't guidelines about how they can conduct an investigation -- you know you can't.
Passed a law.
Dictating exactly how -- investigations be conducted that these guidelines.
Go into the fact that you need some kind of president kids in need some kind of reasonable suspicion.
You can't just decide on an -- look at -- back.

And you know it takes.
A little bit of background to understand.
Why this is wrong.
You know where where one should be tried where professionalism.
Hands and witch hunting.
It can be Associated Press which -- -- has done an investigative work on this.
Indicates that they have gone even beyond the confines of New York City they have safe houses in New Jersey they've gone -- -- they have a limited their surveillance just the New York City.
And into the fibers of New York.
-- you know I don't know.
That that's necessarily terrible -- if -- really developing these.
-- that might be related to New York that -- And and a -- -- so and there's no mechanism to stop this is there and in.
Well there's no that's that's really crazy situation now.
Eric Holder did agree to review what they were doing last march and you know probably it.
So take a year or who knows -- know whether -- whether there'll be public what we'll have to wonder if but ultimately it's -- from Pleasanton.
-- purview of of the city.
