The Associated Press, in a crushing violation of journalistic integrity, has filed suit against law enforcement to disarm the greatest counter-terrorism unit in the world, the New York Police Department (NYPD). It is bent on shutting down a counter-terror program that is entirely legal and legitimate, because it involves surveillance of Islamic supremacists such as the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Students Association.

Even New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has never met an Islamic supremacist he didn’t bow to, has stood by this program and defended it, but that is not good enough for AP.

Decades ago, we cringed when any news story of corruption and collusion broke about our long-venerated, trusted newsmen. We trusted those powerful subversives like Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace, etc. These men had enormous power and they abused it; they perpetrated one of the world’s great campaigns of anti-American disinformation and propaganda. We remember Walter Cronkite as a grandfather figure, a trusted icon, when in fact he did the country incalculable harm.

Twenty years of the Cronkite legacy and we have gone that much further off the deep end. The media today is a propagandist arm whose one goal is to shape the news, change the message, even lie about the news to advance a collectivist, pro-Shariah agenda. How else could an unqualified, bitter America-hater hold the seat in the Oval Office?

The Department of Justice should be defending the NYPD, but the DOJ is finished. Corrupt. Destroyed. The House of Representatives will soon vote on contempt charges against Eric Holder. The Justice Department refuses to uphold rule of law. It’s now a center of red and green madness, where collectivists and Islamic supremacists have the run of the place. Where is our society’s first, most critical line of defense? The DOJ is AWOL. The Department of Justice is engaging in collusion with the country’s most dangerous and subversive jihadist groups.

And this is not just Department of Justice policy. It’s the policy of the Obama administration.

They are out of control. And it is only a matter of time before the Davids in the blogosphere rip these haters’ masks off and reveal how monstrous they really are. And for their flagrant violation of the public trust, they shall rot in prison.

The hardcore Hamas groups in the U.S. – Hamas-CAIR, MSU, MSA, ICNA – are doing a Hitlerian stomping jig to get these counter-terrorism measures removed, so that devout Muslims can roam free to plan the next 911.

For years Atlas Shrugs readers wanted to know why there were no indictments and prosecutions of the Muslim Brotherhood co-conspirators (CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, MAS) named in the largest terror funding trial in U.S. history (here, for example). Obama and Holder have scuttled them, much the same way they dropped the voter-intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers (a case that was, by and large, already won).

Finally, lawmakers in Washington are pursuing justice and demanding answers from an AWOL Department of Justice. According to the Blaze, “Members of the House Judiciary Committee on oversight on Thursday [June 7] called on [the] U.S. attorney general to provide documents and evidence relating to the landmark Holy Land Foundation trial – the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history.”

But Associated Press media is busy doing the DOJ’s bidding, suing the NYPD for protecting all of its citizens from certain death in the coming jihad attacks. According to AP’s own report on its perfidy, “the AP, in a letter dated April 26, requested information on the 911 call under New Jersey’s Open Public Records Act.” They want information about an NYPD investigation of Muslims in a New Jersey apartment building. “In a response dated the same day, New Brunswick police Director Anthony Caputo denied the request on the grounds that it would compromise security at the apartment building by disclosing security or emergency procedures, that it would create a safety risk to the public by disclosing general security measures and investigative techniques and that the records were part of an ongoing investigation by a public agency.”

Does the AP care that its inquiry would “compromise security” by “disclosing security or emergency procedures”? Obviously not. They don’t seem to care about endangering Americans.
