Central Intelligence Agency comes under fire as a an Islāmic civil liberties organization on Wednesday, 24th August 2011 demanded for a federal investigation and Senate hearings into a report that CIA was helping New York City police gather intelligence from mosques and minority neighborhoods.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) suspects the joint CIA-police intelligence-gathering described in an Associated Press report violates the US Constitution, the U.S. Privacy Act of 1974 and a presidential order banning the CIA from spying on Americans, CAIR attorney Gadeir Abbas said.

This comes in the wake of many ethnic , Moslem organizations and the press raising doubts of the various police departments and CIA methods of acquiring information contrary to Presidential orders and US Privacy Act 1974 and the US Constitution.

According to sources the CIA is not only acting so with the New York Police but other agencies and states which perhaps might extend to the FBI and home department too.
