    How the hell do PRISON OFFICIALS determine what is "potentially detrimental to national security"?

    Load of prison-official, control-freaking blather, that.

    My guess is there were many books not allowed. It's like a school library-not public libraries. It's ok to censure some materials. Islam conversions are problematic in prisons so probably any reference to it is prohibited. Rights in prison is not the same as the rest of society, obviously.

    It would be a more interesting story (sorry, FAUX) if we knew which parts of the books the FBI found objectionable. Also, whether or not other prisoners were able to read the books with no problem.
