    (CNN) -- The California chapters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the ACLU say they will announce a federal class action lawsuit Wednesday against the FBI for "illegal surveillance of the Muslim community."
    The council's San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento offices began documenting FBI surveillance practices last year.
    "In recent months, there has been a notable increase in complaints by community members of FBI visits," the offices said in July.
    It said that Muslims of varying ethnic and geographic background have reported visits by FBI agents.
    "We have seen a special emphasis on individuals who have ties to, or have visited Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen," it said.
    The California chapters said it was conducting the project, in conjunction with the ACLU and the Asian Law Caucus, to identify pattens of "overly intrusive conduct."

    Hopefully this lawsuit will reduce the current level of harassment by this agency against innocent Muslim Americans. :cool:

    After they caught that underwear bomber coming in from Yemen, and the time square bomber from Pakistan, I believe anyone coming from these places should be questioned, regardless of ethnicity, religion or sex.

    Wait.

    What?

    There's innocent Muslims?

    Who knew!

    *Disclaimer: I know there are innocent Muslims. Sunni is a fucking ass who deserves to be mocked. And... the FBI rock.... because we haven't had any successful attacks for quite some time.*

    They've also intercepted the components for a dirty bomb coming into the country. As far as I am concerned, that alone should be enough for most Americans to tell CAIR and the ACLU to go fuck themselves.

    I know some people might be offended but traveling to Pakistan or Yemen is not the same as vacationing in Italy or Sweden.

    So far as I'm concerned ANYONE who has traveled ANYWHERE outside the US should be questioned upon their return to the United States and be survailed for some period of time. In my mind the US has NO FRIENDS outside of our own borders and I see no need for the vast majority of American citizens to ever leave the United States in the first place.
