In Glenn Greenwald's Salon column today about the NYPD spying program against any and all Muslims living in NYS and near NYC, he links to questions he submitted on the program to NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn.
A few more questions he might ask (or for that matter anyone else might ask) her office are:
-Will she authorize spying of NYC's Italian-American communities, given that Italian-American anarchists most likely bombed Wall Street in 1920 and most definitely committed with other violent bombings across America?
-Will she authorize surveillance of NYC's Irish-American communities given their alleged ties to the harboring of IRA terrorists and gunrunning to the IRA?
-If these events are too far back in history or took place too far from our shores, just how far back is too far and how far away is far away enough, given terrorism's ghastly results?
First bombing of Wall Street, September, 1920...38 left dead.
