The AP exhaustively detailed last year how six years of NYPD invasive spying on and infiltration of Muslim neighborhoods never generated one lead or triggered a single terrorism investigation. Now, new data shows only 14 U.S. Muslims, out of a population of millions, were indicted on terror charges in 2012.
“So much for a widespread stereotype,” commented Wired’s Spencer Ackerman on the findings of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security in North Carolina. The data tracks only indictments, not convictions, and of the nine terror plot indictments recorded in 2012, none resulted in any casualties. Via Wired:
Terrorist incidents from American Muslims is on the decline for the third straight year. After an uptick in 2009, there were 18 plots in 2011 involving 21 U.S. Muslims. And it’s not just violent plots: Fewer Muslim-Americans are getting indicted for money laundering, material support for terrorism, and lying to investigators. There were 27 people indicted on those terror-support charges in 2010, eight in 2011 and six in 2012.
