IRVINE, CALIF. - Before the sun rose, the informant donned a white Islamic robe. A tiny camera was sewn into a button, and a microphone was buried in a device attached to his keys.

"This is Farouk al-Aziz, code name Oracle," he said into the keys as he sat in his parked car in this quiet community south of Los Angeles. "It's November 13th, 4:30 a.m. And we're hot."

The undercover FBI informant - a convicted forger named Craig Monteilh - then drove off for 5 a.m. prayers at the Islamic Center of Irvine, where he says he spied on dozens of worshipers in a quest for potential terrorists.

Since the 2001 terrorist attacks, the FBI has used informants successfully as one of many tactics to prevent another strike in the United States. Agency officials say they are careful not to violate civil liberties and do not target Muslims.

But the FBI's approach has come under fire from some Muslims, criticism that surfaced again late last month after agents arrested an Oregon man they said tried to detonate a bomb at a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. FBI technicians had supplied the device.

Boo frigg'n hoo. Cry me a river.

You want respect - stand up and be VOCAL about your opposition to what terrorists are doing in the name of islam. TURN THE TERRORIST BASTARDS IN YOURSELVES - and then maybe I might feel badly about the FBI infiltrating your mosques.

What a Hoot!

From the article:

Hell no, they don't target Muslims...after all, it warn't the FBI's fault that the only people attending Muslim prayer were Muslims!

Exactly. Since the mosques are hotbeds of radicalization, any Hindu, Jew, Christian or Buddhist who regularly attended this radical mosque would be just as likely to become a terrorist as a Muslim. It's not the FBI's fault that Hindus, Jews, Christians and Buddhists don't attend the services there as often as Muslims do.
