“The United States’ efforts to kill Osama bin Laden were rightfully kept secret from the Pakistanis. Only government incompetency or collusion could explain bin Laden’s uninterrupted presence there. The Pakistanis could not be trusted.
Of all the recent disclosures regarding the New York Police Department’s sweeping and secret surveillance of Muslim neighborhoods and citizens by their ‘Demographics Unit,’ the most telling is that the NYPD failed to notify New Jersey officials that cops were trolling there too.
New Jersey is a lot of things, but it is not Pakistan.”
