Newest update: Time Magazine

Rolling Stone magazine is facing an outcry of nationwide proportions over its controversial decision to put Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its front cover.Describing the iconic magazine’s latest issue a ‘total disgrace’ Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said that if the magazine had wanted to choose anyone for its iconic cover, it should have been the survivors or the first responders.

Indeed, MBTA Transit Officer Richard ‘Dic’ Donahue, who almost died when the Tsarnaev brothers allegedly shot him in a firefight days after the marathon attacks said, ‘I cannot and do not condone the cover of the magazine’ ‘Why are we glorifying a guy who created mayhem in the city of Boston?’ Retorted Menino, before adding that he would be letting publisher Jann Wenner know exactly what he thinks of the decision by the respected monthly magazine.

‘Why would we want to heroize this guy? He’s a terrorist. We don’t want him in our neighborhoods. We don’t want him on magazines. We don’t want him anywhere,’ Menino said to WHDH.

The cover of August’s edition is a self-taken portrait of Tsarnaev, 19, in which he looks more like a rock star than a terrorist. He is identified simply as ‘The Bomber’ and the article promises to explain ‘how a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster.’

 The use of Tsarnaev as a cover star has caused an instant backlash on social media and CVS announced on Wednesday that it would be boycotting this edition of Rolling Stone from its stores nationwide.The firm issued a statement in which it said that out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones, they would not be selling August’s publication of Rolling Stone.  Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has labeled Rolling Stone magazine’s decision to use Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as its cover a ‘total disgrace’ while Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (right) said it was in bad taste’As a company with deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston, we believe this is the right decision out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones,’ the statement said. CVS is headquartered in Woonsocket, R.I. Read more Dailymail.com

Guess what Obama’s NSA snooping excludes: Mosques

Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.

We do know the panel was set up under pressure from Islamist groups who complained about FBI stings at mosques. Just months before the panel’s formation, the Council on American-Islamic Relations teamed up with the ACLU to sue the FBI for allegedly violating the civil rights of Muslims in Los Angeles by hiring an undercover agent to infiltrate and monitor mosques there.

Before mosques were excluded from the otherwise wide domestic spy net the administration has cast, the FBI launched dozens of successful sting operations against homegrown jihadists — inside mosques — and disrupted dozens of plots against the homeland.

If only they were allowed to continue, perhaps the many victims of the Boston Marathon bombings would not have lost their lives and limbs. The FBI never canvassed Boston mosques until four days after the April 15 attacks, and it did not check out the radical Boston mosque where the Muslim bombers worshipped.

The bureau didn’t even contact mosque leaders for help in identifying their images after those images were captured on closed-circuit TV cameras and cellphones.

One of the Muslim bombers made extremist outbursts during worship, yet because the mosque wasn’t monitored, red flags didn’t go off inside the FBI about his increasing radicalization before the attacks.

This is particularly disturbing in light of recent independent surveys of American mosques, which reveal some 80% of them preach violent jihad or distribute violent literature to worshippers.

What other five-alarm jihadists are counterterrorism officials missing right now, thanks to restrictions on monitoring the one area they should be monitoring?
