Data Demanded on FBI Domestic Spying

SAN DIEGO (CN) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations says the FBI blew off its FOIA request for documents about the agency's mass surveillance of U.S. Muslim groups. The CAIR says it learned of the program when the Union-Tribune reported on May 22, 2008 that workers at Camp Pendleton's Strategic Technical Operations Center "had been stealing classified surveillance files and giving them to local law enforcement agencies and defense contractors," according to the federal complaint.

Camp Pendleton is an enormous Marine base north of San Diego. CAIR wants more information about the surveillance program. It is represented by the ACLU.
