PC: According to NBC News, the Justice Department will soon prohibit religious profiling in terror cases. The move, if true, would completely blind federal law enforcement to the threat from Islamic extremism.
Already, the department has forced the FBI to bleach references to "Islam" and "jihad" from its counterterrorism training materials. It's also made it harder for agents to infiltrate radical mosques.
But Attorney General Eric Holder reportedly now wants to make it illegal for agents to even consider religion in their investigations.
Democrats on the Hill are cheering the changes, along with the ACLU and radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups, who have all lobbied the administration for them. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has seen several of its officials jailed on terror-related charges, calls it "a step in the right direction."
Appearing before the Democrat-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee in 2012, CAIR demanded the administration remove religion as a factor in terrorism investigations, even though just four years earlier Justice had named CAIR an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator.
The Islamic Society of North America, another designated co-conspirator, hailed the move as a civil-rights victory worthy of praise from "Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."
The timing couldn't be worse. Experts say that if anything, the U.S. should be expanding its terrorist profile to include radical Muslim women along with men. Russian intelligence warns female suicide bombers are threatening next month's Winter Olympics.

Islam is NOT a religion.
Frankly, I have my doubts.
Yeah, but they’ll still go after Christians, won’t they?
Damn straight. If it’s a Christian group, expect to be profiled higher than any other suspects in history.
Islamic? Oh, we can’t profile them...
Very well said. Holder and CAIR will never admit it though.
Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!
Holder is one of America’s GREATEST enemies!!!!
You bet they will and they have a strong foothold in our military and 0bamacare already.
Who ARE these people?
If one was to try and come up with ways to destroy America, it couldn’t be a better plan than what these wolves are doing.
Does Holder’s largess include the religion of those he considers the REAL TERRORISTS such as Catholics, Christians, Patriots and Conservatives?/Strong sarcasm
This will encourage Holder to go after TEA Party “terrorists” more energetically. Surely the can go after Limbaugh after this clarification.
The upside of the left taking over the military is that I won’t feel compelled to hesitate if the SHTF.
We need to be saved. That is all I’m going to say. No, I’m not talking about being ‘saved’ as a Christian, although that would be very helpful too.
We’re committing national suicide.
I’m not so sure we want it to.
It’s all OK, because, you ‘ll see that is it very important that we divert the resources to investigating the Little Sisters of the Poor! They are very dangerous women, don’tcha know?
hang holder for treason. aid and comfort to the enemy. assinine.
you might be going up against foreign troops wearing us uniforms, too.
