Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

An Investor's Business Daily opinion piece makes the claim that mosques are excluded
from the massive dragnet surveillance operation of the US Government. "That's right,
the government's sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes
the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized."
Considering that the pretense for all this "necessary" surveillance is to stop
terrorism, it seems unusual to exclude mosques from examination. What is going on?
