NYPD: Muslim Spying Led to No Leads, Terror Casesposted on August 23, 2012
On Monday, court testimony showed that six years of spying on Muslims in the New York area “never generated a lead or triggered a terrorism investigation,” Adam Goldman and Matt Apuzzo report for The Associated Press. “Police hoped the Demographics Unit would serve as an early warning system for terrorism,” Goldmand and Apuzzo write. “No other group since the Japanese Americans in World War II has been subjected to this kind of widespread public policy,” says attorney Jethro Eisenstein.
